This month Mom-Co.com Â the International Marketplace of Mom and Family-Owned Businesses Â launches a series of gift guides designed to help online shoppers streamline their search for the perfect gift.
ÂIncreasing numbers of people are heading online to shop for giftsÂ the need to have the merchandise shipped actually becomes a benefit; especially when the gift recipient lives in another location,Â said Sally Doherty, Mom-Co.com founder. ÂHowever, gift buying is different than shopping for yourself Â suggestions really help.Â
After running a very successful MotherÂs Day Gift Guide, Doherty received a great deal of positive feedback from site visitors and searched online for regularly running gift guides. ÂYou always see gift guides around special holidays, but what about those occasions that require a gift but happen all year, such as a birthday or baby shower?Â With that in mind, she developed the Mom-Co Gift Guides to spark shopping creativity and help lead the consumer straight to innovative, special and unique products especially for the intended recipient.
Each of sixteen gift guides will change monthly and special gift guides will run during holiday periods. There are guides for birthday recipient by age and sex, new baby, baptism, bridal shower, wedding and anniversary. Like the rest of the Mom-Co site, the guides offer the shopper a unique, boutique-like atmosphere - like many of the businesses found in the Mom-Co Marketplace.
