Holiday Forget-Me-Nots – Dec 2004

These holiday “forget-me-nots” are critical for a Merry
Christmas! Your friends at ClassBrain have made a list of
things to remember to make your gift giving complete. Print
this list and take it with you on your shopping trips, and send it to your friends to make their Christmas a merry one as well.


Important Holiday Forget-Me-Nots

Electronic Products: Batteries
When you purchase electronics for someone, remember the
batteries. Kids are especially disappointed on Christmas
morning if they can’t play with their new toys. Don’t assume
that they’ll take the size you have at home. Open the
package and insert the batteries ahead of time.

CDs and DVDs: Disks
When you give the gift of a CD or DVD player, be sure to
give them a CD or a DVD to go with the player. Getting a
cool technology gadget without any way to try it out can be
the height of frustration. Everyone wants to plug them in
right away and try them out, so make sure that they have
something to play.

Family Pets: FasTags® ID Tags
When a new pet joins the family, don’t forget to give them a
FasTags® ID tag.
These shrinkable tags are a quick and fun family project, as
well as a great way to instantly protect your dog, cat, or
ferret. Don’t take the chance of losing your new pet over the
holidays, while you wait for a mail-away tag. FasTags® are
the Tag You Make at Home® and they’re ready to protect
your pet in less than 5 minutes.

Computers, Printers and Other Tech Gear: Cables
If you’re buying computers, printers, VCR’s, camcorders or
anything that needs a cable, be sure to pick that up too.
Manufacturers are notorious for leaving out essential cables.
Be sure that you specifically ask your salesperson which
cables are needed to hook the item up to your system.

Cameras: Film & Memory Cards
If you’re buying a camera be sure to include a roll of film. If
you’re giving a digital camera, include an extra memory
card. Typically, if the digital camera includes any kind of
memory card with the purchase, it tends to be quite small.
You’ll also want to include batteries or a charger with this
gift. After all, it’s the holidays and the camera will be put to
immediate good use.

Clothing: Gift Receipts
If you’re purchasing clothes of any sort for someone, be sure
to include a gift receipt with the present, so they can return it
for another size or color. Although many stores are nice
about holiday returns, trying to make a trade without a
receipt can be a most unpleasant experience.
