Your New Go-To Gift For Under $5

Friends and Family Tablet Sets from Giftsin24.

Give us 8 names and you can create 8 personalized gifts. This go-to gift is perfect for birthdays, wedding parties, office mates and more.

Sometimes inspiration for a particular gift for a particular person comes easily. In your mind’s eye, you immediately see the perfect gift, you find it, you give it. But sometimes inspiration doesn’t come. In that case, you need a go-to gift that’s always appropriate, dependable and affordable.

You want to feel proud of your gift, but you also have a budget. So what’s the answer?

Friends and Family Tablet Sets. Make these your go-to gift. Many of our customers swear by them.

Here’s the concept: With one order, you’ll purchase 8 personalized gifts at once. It’s an easy, efficient way to create thoughtful gifts for a group. Think officemates: Add “Samantha” to one tablet, “Grace” to the next, move on to Abigail, Veronica, Madison, Taylor, Sheila and Ann. Press “order” and you’ll receive 8 personalized tablets in 2-5 days (depending on where you live) and they’ll arrive ready for giving.

Your officemates will never know it was so painless for you. All Samantha and the others will see is their own name carefully and beautifully printed on a high-quality note pad in a vivid ink color. They’ll think you worked for days planning, tracking down, and creating this thoughtful gift. Only you will know it took you less than 5 minutes to order and arrived at your door in a matter of days.

Same goes for your children’s teachers, kids’ party favors, bridal party gifts, Christmas gifts and more. Just add a name to each of the 8 tablets (Mr. Seymour, Ms. Brown, etc. or Preston, Declan, Aiden, etc.), choose your ink color, and we’ll print them for you in 24 hours and ship them out to you.

Here’s another beautiful thing: At the regular price of $25.95, each tablet works out to $3.25. And with free shipping, the picture just keeps getting better and better.

Each tablet is made with our high quality paper. Each sheet is 80 lb text, like nice thick copier paper. There are 100 sheets per tablet. And each sheet is a generous 4.4 inches x 6 inches, so there is plenty of room to write.

Want to try it out? Check your calendar for upcoming birthdays for the next few months, give us 8 names, we’ll send the tablets to you by the end of the week, and you can put them in your gift closet until the birthdays roll around. So easy, right?

5 Ideas for Spring Party Tables

Spring Party Table setting ideas at giftsin24.com

Use nature to inspire your spring party table setting.

In a few weeks, family and friends will be knocking at your door. Maybe you’re hosting the family Easter celebration. Or hosting a bridal shower for your sister-in-law. Or maybe there will be a new baby in the family soon. Do you know how you’ll decorate your table? In this happy and wondrous spring season of change, the best and easiest way to decorate spring party tables is to keep things simple.

Use Nature-Inspired Pastels. 

For a color scheme, you can never go wrong with nature-inspired pastels. Whether it’s a soft grass green, lemon yellow, robin’s egg blue, sweet organge or cherry-blossom pink, pastels automatically make people think spring. Choose a white tablecloth with a pastel runner and napkins. Or try a softly hued table cloth with white napkins.

Go Green.

With nature coming alive, there’s an abundance of free greenery and foliage in your yard that would make a beautiful centerpiece. Look around you and see what’s blooming or budding out. Depending on where you live, you might find cherry, crabapple,  or serviceberry blossoms. Farther north, you might find sprays of pussywillow, witchhazel or even young maple leaves popping out. Keep the centerpiece simple, and if you need to, round it out with evergreen foliage or supermarket mums.

Tie it Together.

For a quick way to add festivity, wind some coordinating curling or grosgrain ribbons through your chandelier or around your centerpiece. If you’re lucky enough to be able to have the windows open, they’ll dance in the breeze.

Choose Color Mist Napkins.

Gifts in 24 offers a beautiful array of Color Mist Napkins & Guest Towels that come in so many colors, they’ll match any decor. Color Mist comes in two finishes: Pearl and Tint. Our Pearl finish lends a soft, pastel shimmer to the raised personalization on these high quality, three-ply napkins. The Tint finish features a unique faded, watercolor effect where the matte color fades as it approaches the center of the raised letters.

Give Kids a Place to Play.

One of the easiest and best ways to decorate the kids table is with butcher paper. Spread it out, wrap the corners under the table, and tape in place. Then add a box of crayons and add a few story books, and the kids will keep themselves busy while munching their meals.

 

 

 

5 Steps to Getting Organized in 2015

giftsin24 offers a wide variety of notepads for  getting organized

Assign a task to each day and you’ll get your new year’s resolution accomplished in no-time!

A new year. A fresh start. Turning over into a new year means turning a new leaf on old habits. And getting organized consistently ranks as one of the most popular new year’s resolutions.

Search “getting organized,” and you’ll find dozens of websites offering hundreds of tips. They cover such things as how to organize your home, your wardrobe, your kitchen cabinets or your day.

5 Tips

No matter what you’re organizing, here are five top ways to make good on your intention and keep the momentum going:

1. Write it down. Keep your goals up front with a good old-fashioned to-do list tacked to your bulletin board or taped to your bathroom mirror.

2. Break projects into steps. Is your goal to declutter your closets? Break it down by location (foyer, broom closet, hall, bath, pantry, etc.). And keep pen and paper nearby as you do them to write down any chores or projects that result from each of these, such as mending mittens, dropping off a box of outgrown clothes at your favorite charity or restocking toothpaste.

3. Assign dates. Schedule specific blocks of time into your calendar for each step. Be realistic. Break tasks into pieces and assign time frames to them, even down to the minutes.

4. Cut yourself some slack. There’s a psychological aspect to changing habits. If you begin to procrastinate or get off track, forgive yourself and start somewhere else. Maybe that first task is too large? Break it down into even smaller chunks, even if they are minuscule, like gathering boxes and trash bags near your closet. Small victories along the way help your momentum. Struggling? Call a super-organized family member or friend for help getting started.

5. Cross off your accomplishments. It feels great to watch your progress! Remember to celebrate your victories!

Looking for pretty and functional to-do lists? Giftsin24 offers a variety of personalized notepads, such as weekly slabs, daily slabs, and family slabs.

Holiday Thank You Notes

Your children have opened their carefully wrapped presents. The evidence is everywhere . . . ribbons and bows are strewn across the floor. Crumpled tissue paper explodes out of boxes.

The merriment of the holiday is winding down to everyday life again. Now comes a teachable moment that will last your children a lifetime: thanking the generous friends and family in their lives.

Teaching children from a young age that it’s important to express their gratitude helps lay the groundwork for thoughtfulness and appreciation. Not only will they learn the importance of courtesy, they will be developing their communication skills as well.

Holiday Thank You Note How-Tos

Here are a few helpful hints to make the “chore” of writing holiday thank you notes both fun and rewarding:

• Set aside a specific time to sit down with your children and help them with their thank you notes to Grandma and Grandpa. Find a comfortable, well-lit place to relax and settle in. This helps them focus on the task at hand and avoid distractions. It’s no fun to have to nag or rush!

• Have the writing paper and envelopes, pens, markers, stickers and stamps ready and available. Kids will especially love being able to write thank yous on their very own stationery.

• If your child is still very young, you may need to be the designated writer; however, even young children can print their name or draw a picture to accompany the words you supply. Children will enjoy embellishing the note with their own stickers and drawings.

Children will love writing holiday thank you notes on their very own stationery!

Children will love writing holiday thank you notes on their very own stationery!

• Be sincere. You want your kids to be authentic. Even if the gift wasn’t something they love, encourage them to thank the giver in genuine appreciation: “It must have taken you a long time to knit the sweater for me. Thank you!”

• Do it sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the less enthusiastic your child will be and the easier it will be to let the good intentions evaporate.

• But do it later, too! Wouldn’t it be fun to make someone’s day by sending them a brief note, long after the holidays, reminding them of their gift and how it’s still being appreciated? “Remember that blue shirt you gave me for Christmas? Here’s a picture of me wearing it when we went to Disneyland.”

• Teach them how to fold the letter or card and tuck it into the envelope. Attach the stamp. Take a special trip to the post office to drop it into the slot. Children will enjoy personally sending their note off to its destination.

Finally, praise your child for their time and effort in writing a thank you. Explain to them how happy their note will make Grandpa or Aunt Ellen. In newspaper advice columns across the country, people are lamenting that they haven’t received thank you notes. But it doesn’t have to be a dying art. If you teach your children the joy of writing at an early age, they’ll continue it throughout their life . . . and it will help them maintain strong relationships that we all know are the key to happiness in life.

Make Your Party Table Shine

Make Your Holiday Party Table Shine

Adding sparkle to your holiday party table is as easy as adding metal, glass and even reflective fabric

How do you create a warm and memorable holiday party table? With an inviting table setting that includes some sparkle and shine! It doesn’t take long to add a little pizzazz. Keep it simple with a few light-reflecting pieces. Choose a few of these ideas, then mix and match with other textures, such as items from nature, and, of course, the aromas and tastes of lovingly prepared food.

Candlelight

Nothing beats the flicker of candlelight to create a warm glow. Gather a collection of candlesticks in the center of your table (ask your family and friends if you can borrow a few) and place matching white, scentless candles in them. Or use plain juice glasses to hold small votives.

Metal

Metal naturally reflects light. The simplest way to add metal accents is by using real utensils. Make sure they shine by giving them a quick swipe with a clean cloth and a dab of vinegar. Or, use a bowl made of silver, chrome or pewter as the base of your centerpiece.

Mirror

Mirrors work especially well when you have a beautiful chandelier above them. But they work beautifully with candles or metal too. Use a mirror like a tray and place candlesticks or metal centerpiece on it.

Fabric

Warm up a table with a tablecloth, runner or place mats that have metallic thread or a shiny jacquard pattern.

Napkins

Our foil-pressed napkins could beautifully complement your sparkling theme. Choose from a range of napkin and foil colors.

Yuletide Foil-Pressed Napkin from giftsin24.com. Ships in 24 hours.
