I think my products would work really well as gifts and gift baskets. What are any ideas you all have for marketing them as gifts?

What are some ways to offer gift certificiates?

And finally, gift registries. I just set up a quick copy-and-paste link for mygiftlist.com Is this a good service? I haven't figured out how to do individual links, I haven't even set up a shopping cart yet. So much to do.

If your shopping cart doesn't have a giftlist function, I've heard good things about the link you mentioned.

Gift certificates are great (guilty of not setting them up on my own websites) - you can just make an item and let the customers order the amount they'd like. You can offer to send them directly to the giftee or e-mail them a coupon code.

It might be nice, to take a photo of your products bundled as a gift - like in a pretty basket with a bow and put it on your front page - with an explanation, "Product X makes a great gift!"

Then use banner advertising to push your products as shower gifts or Mother's Day gifts or whatever is applicable.
