One of my favorite online companies loves to put together what they call “bundles” which is their way of saying “a crazy amount of value in one really affordable package”.
Well, they’ve created a special one just in time for the holidays! It’s called A Very Merry Gift Certificate Bundle and here’s how it works…
For just $15 you get $180 in store credits from 12 online businesses that align with a simple, natural lifestyle.
You know those coupon books that schools and sports teams sell as fundraisers? It’s sort of like that, except that these aren’t coupons (they’re better!).
You literally get $15 gift certificates to put towards whatever you like from a dozen participating stores. All you’ll pay are standard shipping rates (which varies by store).
With your bundle, you’ll be able to purchase well-made, meaningful and clutter-free gifts like:
- ethically-sourced coffees from around the world
- photo products including wall decor, canvas wraps, prints and albums
- classy custom-made bags, totes and camera straps
- eco-friendly reusable glass drinking straws
- healing tallow skin balms and lip love
- inspirational hand-lettered art prints
- Kombucha bottles, supplies, and brewing kits
As long as you use one gift certificate, you’ll come out even. Use two and you’ve already gotten a great deal, worth twice what you paid!
The more you use, the more you save, all the way up to $165 free shopping dollars, so you can spend less while gifting well this Christmas.
The only catch? It’s available for just 7 short days, so you need to grab yours quick (and then, get shopping)! This sale runs from Tuesday, November 29th through Monday, December 5th.
Have a GREAT Holiday!
Here are some whole family gift ideas to get you started from high-end tech to low-tech items. To make it even more economical for you, you might consider a 30-day FREE trial of Amazon Prime to get 2-day free shipping.
HD Tablet and E-reader. The new Kindle Fire HD (and high powered HDX) 7-inch tablet is ideal for a whole family gift. My husband bought himself the HDX and really loves it! I have the 1st generation Kindle Fire and there is quite a difference in the display between it and the HD version. The Kindle Fire is more than an e-Reader. It’s a tablet computer with a stunning HD display, screaming fast processor, and much longer battery life than earlier Kindles. You can check your email, play games, listen to your favorite tunes, read books, and watch movies on it. Check out the optional Kindle FreeTime for Kids Unlimited ($2.99 month with Amazon Prime) to make it a better whole family present (especially great if you have young children).
Nintendo Wii U. This is way more than just a game box. Its interactivity and ease of use makes for a great gaming experience for the entire family. It’s a great party console and brings families and friends together to play multiplayer games on a great system.
Digital Photo Frame. This is one of the best ways, in my opinion, to show off your family photos. Check out the NIX 8″ X08D Digital Photo Frame with Motion Sensor. You can purchase a 4GB USB memory drive for about $6 to work with this. This will hold lots of photos and videos and you can load your MP3 music on here too. Under $60 with free shipping.
Movie Tickets. Buy tickets (or gift cards) for the whole family and you’re done. Many theaters discount tickets when you buy in quantity or check out Bulktix.com. Bulktix.com carries tickets to 20 national theater chains (including AMC and Marcus), starting at $7 each. Use coupon code WORDPLUS at Amazon Checkout to get free shipping on any movie ticket order. Don’t forget to take advantage of their snack packs and bundles, which include popcorn and drink vouchers to save at the concession stand. These passes never expire, so you can stock up and save lots of money.
I hope this list helps you with your last-minute shopping.
