Skip Black Friday: Choose Personalized Gifts for Kids

Before we know it the holidays will be here. Retailers will be vying for our money. This year skip the chaos of Black Friday. Whether you are shopping for your grandchild, niece, nephew, friend or your own child consider a personalized gift. Not only will you save yourself the hassle of navigating a retail store during the busy holiday season but you will provide your loved one a gift they will love and cherish for years to come.

Think about the gifts you have given in the past. Does the child still enjoy them or were they a fad that has since passed? Many gifts that are advertised during the holiday season are enjoyed for a short period of time and then forgotten. This year attempt to select an item that will special for years.

Think back to the gifts you cherished as a child. Were they personally made for you? Maybe you still have a blanket someone knitted or a handmade book. With technology available today you have the opportunity to provide a special gift that doesn't require knowing how to knit. A personalized book will likely be saved by a child long past the time they can only read picture books. 

Personalized puzzlesbooksplacemats, and wall art are all fun, memorable gifts. So many gifts for children require batteries these days. The toys do the playing while the child just presses a button. Kids grow and learn from toys that make them think or solve a problem not from toys that do all of the work for them. In addition, personalized placemats and wall art can provide kids an opportunity to recognize their name, study the letters, and learn about letter order. 

Avoid the crowds and purchase a memorable, personalized gift for the children in your life this year. You will be glad you did!

My friends and I have a web hntisog and design business (DriveYourWebsite). We have being looking for a gap within this certain industry as we know most about it. We was thinking about introducing a repairs section where they get either a quotation or pay to have a part of their website re-done or modified, for example: A website which was made in 2001 probably will not S.E.O ( Search Engine Optimisation), they pay to have it added in so they don’t have to buy a new website. Another example would be a website which was made in 2005 and wants to freshen up their website by having a new toolbar, new banners or a new page added in; this is so they don’t have to purchase a whole new website and can save themselves a bit of money. The second thing we want to introduce is template websites; this is where a customer picks and chooses how they want there website to look without having a quotation. The company can pick and choose, what they want on their banner, what style of toolbar they want, how they want it arranged and the specific theme. They will of course a number of options to choose from. This then saves time and money as we the company wont charge them extra for travel. They can do it within the comfort of their office and only takes 10-30 minutes to do whereas a quotation would take up to a few hours. We want to know if this would be a good idea? We want some critical feedback and how we can improve or even ideas on how we can improve as a company. If you’d like to discuss it in more detail with me then please email me: thank you very much.

I work from home and manage a cuploe of websites. The company I work for is very small and we have been approached many times with offers to manage the website and search engine optimisation. In the long run we feel it would be better if I could learn this stuff for myself.Because of my circumstances I would need an online course that I can do from home, and preferably one that is not too technical, but designed for a layman.

Nice article. I was kind of coufesnd at first. SEO is made in order to optimize a site and not the other way around. You create a site and then have it optimized by SEO. What the SEO do is increase the traffic to your site and help make your site achieve a high rank on the search engine.
