This year in the gift exchange, guess who’s name I got? The PICKIEST of all his brothers: Picky-Mick-Pickerson (names have been changes to protect the innocent.) I’ve gotten his name before and after looking at his list, I’d usually get him a gift card. I would feel terrible sending an impersonal and boring gift card alone, so I’d also spend LOTS of time to come up with a scavenger hunt or clever poem (that are frankly too much work) to make myself feel better about it.
This year I came across‘s free Santa Videos and LOVED the idea of sending a digital gift card with a personalized video. Choosing a ready-made video to email with a digital gift card attached (preferred by 70% of recipients) was fast and very convenient. This year I’m giving him something he’ll really want, and he’ll still know I cared enough to make him smile too. Lets be honest, gift cards really are the perfect gift. In this day and age, there are so many creative ways to give gift cards, there is no need to feel gift card guilt. The key is giving a personalized experience with the gift card, to let that person know you spent time to think of them.

To make the personalized video, go to the “video greetings” tab at the top of the page. Simply type in some basic information about the recipient, add few photos, your name and email address then you’re all set. I also saw that has options for both digital and print. How nice would it be to order your Holiday cards and do your shopping on the same site?
