Dear %%! if {[merge members_.fullname_]== “”} { return “Reader”} else {return [firstname]}%%,

Still have gifts to buy that need to arrive by Christmas? Don’t sweat the overnight shipping hassle. Send a gift via email! Whether at the holidays (or for a birthday, graduation or anniversary), gifts that are sent via email are convenient and FAST! Here are some of my favorite online stores that sell gifts that can be sent via email.

Netflix Gift Subscriptions: I’m a huge fan of Netflix, their Watch Instantly program, and giving the gift of movies and entertainment. You can gift anything from a single month of service up to a full year.

Audible Gift Cards, Memberships or Audiobooks: Audiobooks are another one of my favorite indulgences. I love listening to books on my iPod while I drive, walk or exercise. Unfortunately I drive more often that I walk or exercise, but that’s another story!

Amazon Gift Cards: What can I possibly say about Amazon? Is there anyone on the planet (that has Internet access) that couldn’t find themselves a great gift at Amazon? For me, I love Kindle books, kitchen gadgets, and tech, so any Amazon gift cards coming my way will probably be spent on on a book, a whisk or the latest tech thingy I’ve decided I can’t live without.

See ya on the Net,

#3. To Do Lists

To Do Lists Printable (** for premium members only)

Free browser-based to-do lists have proliferated like weeds over the last few years. These five
sites are my favorites, and include a variety of approaches to goal tracking and productivity
management. Whether you are looking for a simple list making tool, or one that integrates with
your mobile phone , calendar, and email, these sites run the gamut from simple to sophisticated.

Gmail Tasks
Gmail Tasks (from Google) are available from within Gmail, can appear on your Google
calendar, can be displayed as a gadget on your personalized Google homepage, and are accessible from your mobile browser. “Just click and type to add new tasks, set due dates or add notes, and (most satisfyingly) check them off as you’re done. Your task list stays up to date no matter how you access it. It’s a simple list that’s with you everywhere you go.”

Joe’s Goals
Joe’s online goal tracker is a bit different from a standard to-do list. It can be better described as daily habit or chore tracker. For example, let’s say my New Year’s goal is to exercise five days a week. I simply add “exercise” as a positive goal, and check off each day that I exercise. An example of a negative goal might be eating junk food or being late for school. To see a tag cloud of everyone’s goals, click on the “Get Inspired” link at the top of the page. To further motivate you, your personal acheivements are available as a badge for your webpage or Google homepage.

Now Do This
Now Do This is also a different kind of productivity tool. Designed for those who work with a
browser open, it lets you create a single list of items and view the items one at a time, until each is completed. When one item is “done,” the next item is displayed. Now Do This is one of my favorite tools. It doesn’t require an account or login, but is not intended as storage for long term to do lists.
