This holiday season eCardGiftNotice lets gift givers notify a recipient a gift is on the way in a very personalized webcam gift message or fun eCard. The Webcam or eCard Gift Message may well create extra mouthwatering anticipation, but will be most appreciated when it prevents a dreaded, even heartbreaking, chocolate disaster.

If a gift recipient doesn't know a food gift is arriving, they may well be out of town or not notice a box arrival. WebCam and eCardGiftNotice lets them know the gift is on the way.

eCardGiftNotice is providing ways this season, to have one's food and floral gifts announced in advance with personal and timely gift messaging. Fruit, meats, plants and chocolates are favorite gifts to give or receive, but they are also most susceptible to weather and time. eCardGiftNotice founder David MacMahan says: "The food gifts are not as likely to spoil or freeze sitting unnoticed if the recipient knows they are on their way. A heartfelt and fun webcam gift message or other emailed gift notice options can be sent via email, ahead of the gift, so the recipient knows to expect it. Not only will it provide anticipation and a notice of a pending gift arrival, it helps keep the family from buying the same thing for their feast, as might have been sent to them as a gift."

Today, family dynamics have changed. People live on the go and families live far apart. The tradition of bringing a pie or baked good, or gift basket of goodies is now often replaced with shipping those cross country. Many people enter through the garage, possibly missing a box on the porch, or may be away when a package arrives. It isn't hard to imagine a gift recipient being away on a trip when a package arrives or missing it, leaving it sitting on the porch for days to spoil in the sun or cold. (see video)

"American families today are scattered across the country and world, but the desired feelings and connections through gifting remain strong", stated MacMahan. "Gift giving is all about creating an emotional connection between sender and recipient" he adds. The webcam message can now be recorded and sent via or can also be added to the packing slip message or floral gift card as a link within their message area. MacMahan contents that the combination of a thoughtfully chosen gift paired with the webcam gift message helps create that emotional connection desired much more effectively than just having the brown box arrive on the doorstep, especially if arriving late.

So this Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, maybe there will be fewer sad faced gift recipients opening spoiled, rotting, or melted treats. They will have heard their gifts are on the way, gotten their gift message on time, and can watch for the gift with mouthwatering anticipation if has their way. Letting a gift recipient know a gift is on the way also serves as a nice way to offset any worries about a last-minute gift purchase. MacMahan points out that everyone has always known that it is the thought that counts, so he suggests that a gift buyer should make sure that at least their thought arrives on time for the gift event. was founded in 2000 by entrepreneur David MacMahan to create ways for a stronger emotional connection between gift senders and recipients. The 90s brought a the shift from hand delivered gifts with greeting cards, to Gift Cards, eGiftCards and brown boxed shipments, often without any gift message or only a small one. eCardGiftNotice has provided gift notification services to many top 100 internet retailers and to smaller ones as well for fourteen years. While the service remains available on several top gifting sites in their brands, it is also now available at no charge for gift buyers to use for any gifts purchased.
