Gift Review and Giveaway

I love going to the stores to go shopping, usually I have one or both of the kids in tow and sometimes it is hard to keep up with the oldest, always pulling things off the shelves and saying "I Want!".  Yes at 7 years old, she is still in that phase!  There are times when I either want to go by myself, or wish there was a way to do my shopping at home.  Have you ever needed to get a gift for someone, but just did not have a clue what to get them?  You go to the department stores or the shopping malls and go into every store looking for the perfect gift, but after several hours, you just never seem to find it.  I know personally from the experiences of shopping, when you can't find and don't know what to get that hard to buy for person on your list, the best thing I know how to do is get a gift card.  What kind of gift card is really the best?  The kind of gift card where they can go into their favorite store and buy exactly what they need of course!  I found a great place online where you can find a selection of gift cards to send top that special person on your list without even having to leave your comfortable air conditioned home, or in my case I don't have to leave in front of my fan. provides consumers with immediate access to hundreds of retailers with instant emailable and online gift cards.  In this day and age, email seems to be the best and most popular way of communication, so even when you are far away from a friend or loved one and want to send them a special gift, it is so easy and environmentally friendly as well to send them a gift card from promotes greener gift giving and seeks to eliminate the use of wasteful plastic.  Their solution is a "kiosk-like" usability with unparalleled selection and speed.  Need a card to Sears right now either for yourself or the special friend in your life.  Head on over to and you can have in just a few minutes!  They save you time and energy, without having to sacrifice your shopping experience. dislikes plastic.  I mean honestly who doesn't with all of those plastic bottles, containers, and such going into all of our landfills and causing such a mess.  Manufacturing plastic gift cards wastes valuable resources and causes destructive gases to be emitted.  After production, these plastic bits must be packaged, shipped, stored, likely reshipped, restored, displayed, sold, and then possibly wrapped, packaged, and shipped again.  Talk about a lot of work for just a little card that fits into your pocket or wallet huh?  The result is a massive carbon footprint left behind by a little 1/4 ounce card.  Seems like a waste to me!  The harmful effects of plastic gift cards doesn't end here though.  Plenty Magazine, which is a leading source for sustainable living, reported that plastic gift cards account for 75 million pounds of discarded PVC, which is a toxic substance that can contaminate the water supply.  EPA studies show that exposure to PVC puts people at an increased risk of liver damage, reproductive and developmental health problems and cancer.  So what better way to join the cause and let everyone know that there is a safer, cleaner and environmentally better way to send a gift card by heading over to

Whether you need a gift card for him or her, things for the home or apparel, gourmet foods or a gift card for that new or mommy to be, or maybe even a gift card for that sports fan in your life, you are going to find it over at  With popular retailers such as Sears,, Gymboree, Kmart, Home Depot, Sephora and so many more to choose from, there has to be something here for that hard to please person in your life. has a great promotion going on right now that you really want to check out!  In the spirit of keeping your friends, family,children and spouse indoors for hours on end this summer in the nice cool air conditioning because it's too hot to go outside and enjoy the nice weather, will be giving away a Nintendo Wii to one lucky winner as well as a $50 Gift Card to the lucky blogger or website that refers the winner.  The official rules to this giveaway and how to enter are found HERE.  I can speak from experience that the Wii is so much fun and is a great tool for exercise.  This is definitely not a sit on your butt type of gaming system and I would recommend this to anyone.  So head on over and enter, maybe you and I will be winners together!
