To show how simple it can be to find the right present, lifestyle expert Rebekah George helped Ben Jones as he shopped for his wife of four months.

When she asked him what he bought her last year, Jones couldn't remember - and neither could his wife.

"Oh, that's not good," George told him. "But I can help."

She showed him how to use RetailMeNot's shopping app, which sends alerts about nearby deals straight to his phone.

Jones was alerted to a deal at a nearby florist.

George told him that he doesn't need to buy roses, and instead suggested he purchase a mixture of his wife's favorite flowers and his favorite flowers.
