So, Mother’s Day is coming up.
I won’t be with my own mom this year, but I will be with Nino’s mom, and I’m sure we will all do something special to celebrate our day. Nino’s mom isn’t the easiest person to shop for. It’s not because she is hard to please, but rather it’s that she really has everything and does not need anything new!
Most of the time, I give her cute little things like the latest framed photo from our family photo session, or I ask the kids to make her something I know she will enjoy for herself like Gia’s Tres Leches cupcakes, or sometimes, I just ask the kids to make her a card and write something special for her.
Lola’s are always happy to receive notes from their grandchildren, aren’t they? But, of course there are times when I would like to GIFT her something more…
And this is why, I am so happy to share about this new website which gives someone like me the freedom to GIFT someone like Nino’s mom with a special treat where she has choices.
When you want to give a gift to someone, all you have to do is visit www.gifted.ph and start shopping.
Register and create an account with your user name and password first.
You can choose from clothing retailers, restaurants, yoga studios, children’s clothing retailers, and even just depositing to your recipient’s bank account with cash if you would like.
Once you have chosen the type of GIFT you would like, you create a Greeting Card for your recipient.
You fill in the text of what you want your card to say. I love how it shows you exactly what it will look like.
And then you choose your method of payment. It’s that easy…Your electronic GIFT Certificate will be sent to the recipient of your choice via email.
How easy is that?
Now…say you received a GIFTED Gift Certificate and you would like to redeem it?
It’s just as easy to redeem, print, shop and/or eat.
And because I wanted to try it out for myself to see just how easy it is, I chose Alba’s as my GIFT to Nino. We enjoy Alba’s for our date nights because it’s close, the food is great, the sangria is yummy, the servers know us, and there is live music. It’s like that when you have a favorite restaurant, no? The servers remember you, and they treat you like family. That’s how it is EVERY time we visit Alba’s in Westgate.
And it was that easy when it came time to pay. The folks over at Alba’s got it right when they tied up with GIFTED! How easy was that?
So, the folks over at GIFTED want YOU to be able to experience just what it would be like to send or receive a Mother’s Day gift this coming May 10th. They have given me three GIFT certificates to give away to three lucky readers in the amount of Php 500.00 each!
