Connecting Grandmothers, Moms, Kids with Each Other - PRODUCT REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

WIN a CEIVA Pro80 Digital Frame with One Year Picture Plan, A Prize Package Valued at More Than $200  -- ENTER CONTEST at Bottom of this Post!  HURRY, Ends May 20, 2010
Mother's Day is this Sunday and run-of-the-mill gift choices are loaded up in all their glory on store shelves right now.  That's really not so surprising considering that after Christmas, Mother's Day is probably the second most popular day of the year for present giving, not to mention long distance "I love you call" making to Moms everywhere.

Maybe last year you adult sons and daughters sent your moms some flowers or your own young kids might have made something by hand for you at school.  This season, dare to be different and possibly more sentimental, too.  Why not give something this Mother's Day that can truly bridge the generations, can be enjoyed thousands of miles away -- no matter the time zone, and also may be used the other 364 days on the calendar?

The answer to that riddle is something my own Mom will be receiving this weekend: a CEIVA Pro80 Digital Frame that comes bundled with a year's worth a picture delivery service.  This CEIVA product was selected in 2009 for the Most Memorable Gifts for Hanukkah and for the Best Christmas Presents Showcase.  Pictured here is my 12 year-old daughter who sometimes guest blogs here as Mini MommyBlogExpert proudly showing off the frame she blinged out with the sparkling stick-on crystals that CEIVA sent us along with this frame for review.  Above is a photo showing the product and package of crystals still in its box when they arrived, before she decorated the frame.

Don't worry, this post may be going up days before the holiday but there's just about a zero percent chance Grandma is even going to find out about it before it arrives on her doorstep because she's never read my blog.  It's not that my Mom isn't interested in her daughter's writing -- it is because she has never had nor ever wants to use a computer.

That is exactly the beauty of giving this thoughtful gift: it is EASY to use, there's no need for a PC, and setting it up requires no technical expertise.  Quite simply, this CEIVA Digital Frame is perfect for bridging the wired and unwired generations together -- small kids and adult children alike.  With this electronic dream, I can transmit photos of the grandchildren from my laptop directly to my mother's frame once she has connected it herself to her regular phone line and plugged it all into a standard electrical wall outlet.  That means once it is set up I'll be able to electronically send big 5x7 color photos to her frame's screen while I'm away on vacation with my own family any where in the world we may go and also from my home computer even though we live hundreds of miles apart from each another.  Here's how the CEIVA Pro80 works

With CEIVA's Pro80 purchase options available as 1, 2 or 3 digital frames packaged with an equal number of one year picture delivery plans included, there is even the possibility to send frames to BOTH sets of your kids' grandparents or even to more relatives living some distance from one another.  As of the date this post was published, a Mother's Day sale currently being offered includes one CEIVA Pro80 Digital Frame for $147.99, including a one year picture plan -- together regularly priced at more than $200) plus a free gift of a dazzle crystal kit valued at $19.95.  CEIVA Pro80 MultiPacks are on sale as well, with two and three frames currently priced respectively at $269.99 and $359.99.

At a small additional cost, you can personalize these frames in a myriad of ways still further, with more than one thousand skins and a variety of other frame, matte, and finish options such as these.
The CEIVA Pro80 Digital Frame as well as other digital frames and accessories are all available directly from the manufacturer's online store.  Select CEIVA products and accessories may also be purchased from retailers such as Best Buy, Solid Signal, Amazon, Helix Camera & Video, and Samy's Camera.

I would so much love to win this prize! I have such a big family, having frames all over every where has become a health hazard! LOL Not only is it very practical, it is, as your daughter very beautiful! Add to all that is the easy to use factor and what could be better to keep family photos visible when the family isn't near by? Love it!

Increase credit score and save money. Your credit score largely determines the lenders available and the interest rate at which they will lend. Fix credit and expand the number of lenders willing to compete for your loan.
