Innovative and fun 2.0 Web site is designed to simply "Make someone happy" this Holiday Season.

Part of the goals of the Internet technology initiative called Web 2.0 is to make the Internet easier to use and more in tune with users' needs. The company had those goals in mind when they created Santa 2.0.

Probably the closest thing you'll find to actually having Santa show up at your door, this animated, singing Santa greeting card and virtual gift site allows the user to click through a few drop-down lists, enter the card recipient's name, and instantly create a virtual singing Santa greeting card that uses the recipient's name in 'Santa's' own voice. There are 10,000 names pre-programmed into the site according to the company. Santa is also smart enough to say the sender's name when the greeting plays.

"On-line greeting cards have moved from unique to common-place in the last few years. That's why we thought we'd take advantage of the new Web 2.0 technology to kick off a new and improved version that's actually as much fun to create as it is to receive," said Ethan Navy, Creator of http://www.gift.us.

Santa is pre-programmed to deliver cute and innovative Flash®-based audio greeting cards to a variety of different categories of people including parents, children, spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, colleagues, long-lost friends, people who you've argued with lately, and the favourite techno geeks in your life.

Bloggers, for example, could use the geeky greeting as a personalized welcome message to their loyal readers.

Once the virtual card is personalized, the sender is also able to choose from a variety of inexpensive virtual gifts to accompany the greeting card, or they can choose to send just the virtual card for free.

If virtual gifts aren't on your Holiday giving list, the site also offers a unique e-book gift titled Happiness 101. Among the contents of the book is insight into the top recipes for true happiness. Our concept is "Make someone happy," Nunn said. "And although the electronic card is a good start, Happiness 101 just may end up being the most valuable gift you'll ever give," he added.

"While the theme is Santa 2.0 for now, gifts.us will support other holidays, special days and every-day gift-giving occasions in the weeks to come," Mr. Navy added.

Santa 2.0 is one of those web sites that you have to experience to appreciate. Impress the hard-to-please crowd with a virtual card and gift by visiting http://www.gift.us right now.
