I just learned about a new gift site/shopping service launched by Lisa Fielding and Stefanie Katz Rothman, two NYC moms like me. Their new site Gift Hero makes shopping for kids’ birthday presents a cinch. Just visit their site and choose from a hand-picked selection of toys (there is a convenient search tool to search by child’s age or gender). I especially like the Melissa & Doug Slice-and-Bake Cookie Set ($20) and the Take-A-Part Crane ($25). Whatever you choose, the gift will ship to the lucky child in an eco-friendly gift bag “Gift Hero” tote- no more wasteful wrapping paper. Also, when you purchase a gift through Gift Hero you’ll have an opportunity to make a small donation to a Head Start program in the South Bronx. Here in NY, where so many non-profits are suffering in this economy, this is an extra special touch to add some real meaning to birthday-gift-buying. Visit Gift Hero.
