About Romantic Gift Ideas Online

Romantic Gift Ideas Online is the joint project of four very different individuals whose paths crossed several years ago on Australia's Gold Coast.

From time to time one of us would suggest doing a project together, but it wasn't until recently that we actually set aside time to discuss the idea. While chatting about the various interests we had in common, someone mentioned shopping, and we all agreed that buying gifts for the significant people in our lives was often a challenge. We realized then that other people might share that experience, and the Romantic Gift Ideas concept was born.

Our Purpose

The main purpose of Romantic Gift Ideas Online is to research and investigate both new and traditional romantic gift ideas. We then write an article on each idea and list the best sites we've discovered that offer related products. This makes it easy for our visitors to follow through on an romantic gift idea once they've decided it might be what they're looking for.

The interesting thing about doing this project is that we're continually discovering new ways to express romantic feelings through gifts. The only drawback is the speed at which we can summarize our research into an article and post it on the web site. We typically research any number of ideas at one time, with each at varying stages of completion. Aside from conducting research online, we also make a point of interviewing store owners and consumers, because we prefer to include some 'bricks-and-mortar-world' input in our summaries.

So if you find yourself at a loss for romantic gift ideas when shopping for the person who 'has everything', take a few minutes to browse our site. We're constantly adding new pages so you should find something to stimulate your imagination.

How We Fund Romantic Gift Ideas Online

Because we don't sell any products ourselves, we cover the costs of maintaining the site by joining affiliate (commission-based) programs. Our policy is that if a site we've approved for our Recommended lists offers an affiliate program, we join.

Although many of the sites we recommend don't offer programs, we choose to include them in our listings because they offer superior products. Our purpose is to recommend useful sites, regardless of whether we make a commission or not. If we only recommended sites with affiliate programs, we'd lose our credibility very quickly.
