Domain Names Make Great Christmas Gifts
If you don't know what to get that special someone in your life for Christmas this year, or are just looking for something a little different to put in someone's stocking, how about a domain name?
Domain names can be registered for as little as $7.50 (or even less), and only have to be renewed once per year! Giving someone a domain name for Christmas can be a special way to recognize who they are. Suggestions might include DaddyMechanic.com, CulinaryCastle.com, or ScrapbookingParents.com. (These domains were all available to register at the time of this post.
Of course, if you get someone their own domain name, why not check to see if their real name is available? It's also a good idea to make sure that the person who recieves the domain name as a Christmas present has the interest and website skills to develop the domain into a site. Or perhaps, include a gift certificate for cheap web design, or offer to do that yourself.
To present the Christmas gift to them, you could simply place a copy of the domain registration in their stocking. A better idea might be to get an item or two printed with their new web address right on them, and wrap those up and put them under the Christmas tree.
If the idea of giving a domain name as a Christmas gift appeals to you, be sure to look through the unregistered domain lists here on this blog. You might find one that fits just right!
