With the deluge of weddings, housewarming parties, baby showers, and holidays like Mother's Day and Father's Day during this time of the year, I feel like I've been in a perpetual state of gift giving. Sometimes I know exactly what I want to give that friend to welcome her to her new city and flat, but other times I need a little inspiration...

Drawing from my own recent experience of trying to find unique, fun, and personal gifts for loved ones in my life, I present this week's tablet app roundup, full of shopping curation and item search apps (with price comparison in mind) for the iPad, Android, and Windows 8 tablets. 

Yes, all of the apps are free so you can save your money for the gifts themselves!

2. Fancy (Android & iOS).
