Free E-Gift Giving

I've been working on this little project for a while. You would think giving free e-gifts would be easy but not so. Let me Splain.
I was trying to come up with a way to give gifts without spending a penny. Enter the E-card! And then things went south but I sorted them for you! Give me a few sentences and I'll tell you a tale of E-woe.
How cute are these E-cards? I know, they are over the top adorable and you can send them for free with Punchbowl! They have many free cards and not just for Christmas.
Then I started thinking about gifts that you could include in your E-card. Saved up your swagbucks, you could cash in your bucks for a gift code for the recipients favorite store. No money spent!
There are many different reward sights that offer gift codes and would work nicely in the card. Again, not a penny spent.
And this is where my problem started, I wanted to include a link to a free movie in the card. Sigh, all of the free E-card sights didn't let you link to anything. But Punchbowl will let you put the address in the card . Yay, Punchbowl. Just make sure that you shrink the font size of the address. The recipient can't scroll down in the card.
And Christmas Story is free on Youtube! Here's the link! You could also include a song from Youtube or a funny video clip in the card. Again, your money is still in your pocket.
This is going to take a while and you are going to have to play around with it but it is adorable and easy to personalize. Even Den thought this was a good idea. He kept asking me about what movies you could include. Normally, he just grunts at me. He may be getting an E-card for Christmas.
I would make an E-card  and get it just how you want it and then send a copy to yourself and see how it looks. I've sent myself many, many, many cards trying to get it right. I love me and have the cards to prove it.
Can you think of anything else that you cold include in the card? Don't say porn.You didn't think that I would write an entire post and not say something naughty, did you?

Sonya Ann,
That is great idea. Now, let's see if I can get just one done before Christmas.

The one movie I cannot find is Song of the South. It is only available on PAL, it seems. No, it is not racist.

I tried to find Song of the South for my mother for years. I could find a UK version but it would not accommodate any of our players. Bummer!

I love A Christmas Story. Ralphie is adorable.


Sonya Ann said...

Linda-Once you get going with it, it didn't take long. I thought it would be a fun and free little project. Now we will see if I have the time for it.

Sonya Ann said...

Anne in the kitchen-Never heard of it. Could you order a UK player and an adapter?

Sonya Ann said...

Janie Junebug-That is one of my all time favorites.

Jane said...

You are just an e-Genius!! Definitely an e-idea worth e-xploring. Ok, I tried.

Frances said...
