GiftZip Amazon Gift Card and Wii Giveaway!

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
Gift-giving is an important part of our social life. A unique gift may brighten the day for someone we love or make a special occasion unforgettable. Gift-giving is also an art. Choosing the perfect gift for your recipient can be a real challenge. When you run out of gift ideas, the best way out is to purchase a gift card, which offers the recipient considerable flexibility in selecting what she truly desires. I was recently introduced to GiftZip.com, a one-stop shop for electronic gift cards and gift certificates.

Highly concerned about the negative impact of plastic gift cards have on the environment, GiftZip champions the movement to go electronic and go green in gift giving. Here are some startling facts I learned from GiftZip about the harmful effects of plastic gift cards that I have to share with you.

Manufacturing plastic gift cards wastes valuable resources and causes destructive gases to be emitted. After production, these plastic bits must be packaged, shipped, stored, likely reshipped, restored, displayed, sold, and then possibly wrapped, packaged, and shipped again. The result? A massive carbon footprint left behind by a little 1/4 ounce card. Plenty Magazine, a leading resource for sustainable living, reported that plastic gift cards account for 75 million pounds of discarded Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) each year. PVC is a toxic substance that can contaminate water supplies. EPA studies show that exposure to PVC puts people at increased risk of liver damage, reproductive and developmental health problems, and cancer.

GiftZip strives to save our planet without sacrificing any part of your shopping experience. It provides immediate access to hundreds of retailers' instant, emailable gift cards. You can shop by category, recipient, or search for the retailer you'd like to choose. The checkout process is as easy as a snap and you can have the gift emailed directly to the recipient along with your message.

Now through August 1, GiftZip is having an exciting giveaway on Facebook. Prizes include a Nintendo Wii for one fan and a $50 eGift card to the Blogger or website that refers the winner. If you comment on the GiftZip Facebook Page telling them that you heard about the giveaway from my blog or tag icefairy's Treasure Chest in your comment (just type @ followed by icefairy's Treasure Chest, and my facebook page should appear as a drop down if you're already a fan), you'll receive an extra entry into both the Wii giveaway and my Amazon gift card giveaway! Certainly a win-win option!

The Giveaway
To promote a greener way of gift giving, GiftZip has generously offered to give one of my lucky readers a $25 Gift Card to Amazon.com! I'll also throw in a bonus prize of $5 Amazon Gift Card out of my own pocket if the giveaway receives 1,500 entries by 8/9.
