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?

Chorapalooza: Raising Responsible Kids

Raising responsible kids: Giftsin24 offers organizing tools to help you create chore lists for children

Start kids out with simple chores, like hanging towels or clearing the table. Before long, they may be washing loads or making whole meals.

Getting kids to remember their chores is one thing. Motivating them to do them is quite another. Many parents give up and decide it’s not worth the fight. But other parents believe instilling a shared sense of responsibility and work ethic in children sets them up to be productive, hard-working adults.

Behavioral psychologists recommend creating a visual schedule for children so that they can see their tasks at a glance and gauge their progress.

When you’re just starting out, it’s important to keep tasks simple. Folding and putting away clothes, setting or clearing the table, and taking a dog for a walk are all good places to start. Gradually increase the complexity of the tasks as your child masters the easy ones.

Building in simple rewards is another key. These rewards can be stickers, experiences with you or the children’s friends, or a weekly allowance.

Before long, you may just find that kids will be cooking meals, cleaning bathrooms and mowing the lawn!

Tools for Raising Responsible Kids

Giftsin24 offers several products that can help you create a visual schedule. These three oversized slabs contain 250 sheets, offering up to 5 years of weekly chore sheets for your busy family.

The Family Organize by Day Slab  makes a great basis for a visual schedule. Simply tear off a page, write in the daily chores for each person and hang it on your refrigerator, pinboard or other central, convenient place. This is a useful tool to show that everyone in the family has responsibilities.

The Organize by Day Slab  is appropriate for making chore lists for individual children or family members. Each week, hang a new sheet in a child’s room so their list is always close at hand.

The Organize by Week Slab is another tool for creating a visual schedule for individual family members.

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.
