Still have gifts to buy that need to arrive by Christmas? Don’t sweat the overnight shipping hassle. Send a gift via email! Whether at the holidays (or for a birthday, graduation or anniversary), gifts that are sent via email are convenient and FAST!
Here are some of my favorite online stores that sell gifts that can be sent via email.
Netflix Gift Subscriptions: I’m a huge fan of Netflix, their Watch Instantly program, and giving the gift of movies and entertainment. You can gift anything from a single month of service up to a full year.
Audible Gift Cards, Memberships or Audiobooks: Audiobooks are another one of my favorite indulgences. I love listening to books on my iPod while I drive, walk or exercise. Unfortunately I drive more often that I walk or exercise, but that’s another story!
Amazon Gift Cards: What can I possibly say about Amazon? Is there anyone on the planet (that has Internet access) that couldn’t find themselves a great gift at Amazon? For me, I love Kindle books, kitchen gadgets, and tech, so any Amazon gift cards coming my way will probably be spent on on a book, a whisk or the latest tech thingy I’ve decided I can’t live without.
Donors Choose Gift Cards: I first learned of Donors Choose in 2007 when Google sent me a Donors Choose gift card as a holiday present. Back in those days, Google sent cool, techie holiday gifts to their best Adsense publishers. Anyway, in 2007, after several years of widgety gifts, Google changed course a bit by giving us a gift certificate that we could spend on others. Here’s how it works. Teachers from across the country submit projects that they need funded. Then donors choose projects to fund. For any project you can give a portion of the funds requested, or you can fund the entire project. Donors (that meet certain minimum criteria) receive heart-warming letters from the students themselves, and you will walk a little lighter knowing you’ve done good!
