If you have ever tried to find a gift for someone who has everything, you know that gift-giving can be a challenge.

AwesomeBox is a one-of-a-kind gift that you can personalize for that special friend or relative.

What is an AwesomeBox?

AwesomeBox is a fun way to make a unique gift for someone. Think of a photo book—but instead of being a book the photos and memories are made up of coaster-sized cards packaged in a lovely gift box. You can create a box individually for someone, or you can invite others to join you in uploading photos, and, if desired, written memories or inspirational quotes.

Making an AwesomeBox

I must admit when I first embarked on making an AwesomeBox, I thought it would be time-consuming and frustrating. That is usually my experience with a new digital concept until I learn how to use it. However, my experience with AwesomeBox was truly, well, awesome.

The most time-consuming part of making an AwesomeBox was deciding on which photos I wanted to include. Everything else took literally minutes. I added the photos I wanted, and sent an invite to a couple of other people so they could add their favourite photos and memories and that was it.

This really is a fun concept. It is fun to make the box, fun to see what your friends add to it and fun to give to the recipient.

The only negative I discovered is that if you want to ship an AwesomeBox to Canada, be prepared for an extra charge.
