Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2013
eCardGiftNotice is pleased to announce that this season, it will be redefining the online gift giving experience with its free webcam and other personalized messaging options. The growth of online gift shopping and great distances between loved ones are new trends that combined to create a prevalence of impersonal "gifting". Brown boxes arriving with short, or no gift messages, or gift cards with ten word messages are the "new norm." In the past, giver and recipient could see the smile and joy of the other, creating that emotional connection. Now webcam recorded gift messages will reestablish that connection.
"American families today are scattered across the country and world, but the desired feelings and connections through gifting remain strong", stated David MacMahan. MacMahan founded the company in 2000 to bridge the lack of personalization in gift messages and to provide a way to solve last-minute gift delivery fears. David points out, "thirteen years ago we were nowhere near the 70% high speed presence in homes and 94% availability we have today." (Pew Research Study)
Webcams installed on most computers shipped today, combined with that high speed internet availability is what he credits as the reason video gift messages, and other creative gift expressions will be available this holiday. Packages will arrive with a link to the gift message recorded, or a notification will arrive via email to let them know the gift is on the way. This is a way to overcome last-minute gift arrival concerns as well.
So this holiday, the mobility of society and the growth of the internet and internet shopping that had previously worked to depersonalize traditional gifting, has enabled eye to eye gift giving again, much closer to how it used to be.
Founded in 2000 to help personalize gift giving from online purchases, it has been providing eCard and printable gift notices on top retail sites. This holiday season, the company added WebCam options and is making the service free to all consumers through a wide range of top brands in online retail. Learn more at eCardGiftNotice.com.
