The Best Online Gifts

Updated on November 11, 2012

The Best Online Gifts For Our Loved Ones Across The Globe

With the gift giving season coming up, I'm sure we're all thinking about what to get our loved ones, not only around us but the ones halfway around the world.

Here's a list of creative presents that your loved ones around the world will appreciate, much more than just a gift card!

The Gift of Life

World Vision

World Vision's website allows you to buy something for people in need and send either a card or an e-card to someone honouring the gift given or they give you the option to buy a real gift, such as a plush toy or necklace and the money is donated to where it is needed most.

What better gift is there then to give a meaningful and helpful gift to someone in need?

The variety of gifts is immense and you'll have a lot of fun choosing what to give! The gifts range in price from $10 to a $39,000 health clinic!

There are things such as animals, eg. a goat and two chickens for a family to clean water. There are also many real gifts such as plush toys, necklaces and hand carved serving spoons!

So not only does your loved one get an amazing gift, the proceeds go to an amazing cause.

Here is World Vision's Gift Catalouge, take a look here

The Gift of Entertainment

A Playlist, An Album, A Song, A Game, A Movie

Who doesn't love music, movies and games?

Through Itunes you can send your friends and family a little present online! You can send them a specific album, song or game by clicking on the arrow next to the price and clicking 'gift this.'

But I think the best thing Itunes has to offer is the opportunity to send customised playlists. You can make a playlist with a combination of songs you own and also from the Itunes store and send the whole playlist as a gift! I think this is an extremely sweet gift that you could send to anybody!

To do this just make a playlist and from the store menu at the top just click 'share playlist'

The Gift of Reading

Send An Ebook!

There's nothing better than curling up with a book in bed, so why not an ebook?

Send your favourite titles to your friends and family through Kindle or Nook Books by clicking the "Give As Gift" widget on each book page.

There's no cost of shipping and packaging and even better is that the price is much less than that of a paper book!

So share your favourite books! The books are sent through email.

You can search the kindle store through Amazon

And Nook Books through Barnes and Noble

The Gift Of Television

Hulu and Netflix

If your friends and family are television buffs why not send them a subscription to Hulu or Netflix? This is the perfect gift to send to your family and friends who can't get enough TV! There's a huge variety of TV and Movies for them to get through and will keep them occupied for days!

A Hulu subcription is $7.99 a month.

A Netflix subcription is also $7.99 a month.

Note that this is for the USA only
