Why Should You Shop at

Hello shopping fans!

In this post we'll share some of our thoughts about how we are trying to live up to our own standards for great online shopping.

If You Deem This Worthy, Please Spread the Word!
We are always grateful for the support of our friends & fans!

So, without further ado...

Why should you shop with us at Here is what we think:

FIND THE PERFECT GIFT: Choose from romantic, relaxing, funny, pretty, cute, inspiring, or practical. We have 3,000+ items in 30+ product categories, with prices ranging from $1.95 to $299.95 We have something for everyone in every price range, including virtual gift cards and gift certificates for those 'hard-to-buy-for' people in your life.

CONVENIENCE: Obviously, you can do your shopping without leaving your home. (Jammies and bunny slippers optional.) And your order can be shipped right to your front door.

GREAT PRICES: In a recent pricing comparison test, DreamWorthy randomly selected 10 products and compared prices for the same or similar items at major brick and mortar retailers as well as other well-known websites. Market prices for this test ranged from $4.99 to $149.00. In every case but one, DreamWorthy Gifts' price was lower (we lost once by a few cents). The savings ranged from $0.83 to $65.04, with an average savings of $17.03. (Our analysis included our standard DWG20 coupon promotion, to save an extra 20% at checkout. This promotion is available for everyone, can be used every time, and does not expire.)

SECURE ONLINE SHOPPING: When we transfer and receive financial information, we redirect visitors to a server that is secured using industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. In a nutshell, SSL creates a secure connection between our online store and the Gateway, the mystical place where credit card transactions occur. This allows shoppers to send their credit card information in a secure manner over the Internet. All major e-commerce websites use this type of encryption, and you should feel safe to shop online at our store.

MULTIPLE PAYMENT OPTIONS: In addition to using secure servers for your protection, we accept PayPal for payments. PayPal has earned over 20 awards, is owned by eBay, and remains the global leader in online payment solutions. You may pay using your own PayPal account, with a credit or debit card, or through eCheck (which is an electronic funds transfer from your checking account). And frankly, if these options don't work for you, contact us and we'll figure something out.

UNPARALLELED CUSTOMER SERVICE: We stand behind our products and will do everything possible to ensure you are completely satisfied with them and us. Yes, we have company policies, but we also apply reasonable logic, listen with empathy, use common sense, act with integrity, and make decisions on a case-by-case basis. Occasionally, we break our own policies to ensure a customer is satisfied. We take service seriously.

SAVE ON SHIPPING: Spend $25 | Get 25% off Shipping! ~ Spend $50 | Get 50% off Shipping!

SAVE WITH COUPONS: Use a coupon you already have or use code DWG20 to save 20% additional at checkout.

REFER FRIENDS & SAVE MORE: See our Refer-a-Friend promotion on our homepage: Refer friends and they receive a coupon for 25% off. When they buy, you receive a coupon for 40% off! There is no limit to the number of friends you can refer, or the 40% off coupons you can receive.

So, what do you think? Do you think we've got it right? Do you think we can do something else? Send us your feedback and suggestions - we love to hear from our friends, fans, blog readers and shoppers!

Thanks so much for your support!

With so many places to shop online what separates the winners from the losers is what I like to call PPE...Price, Personality & Empathy and that you will certainly find in abundance with Mike & Kali!

These guys are Top Notch & I have no reservations in recommending them...And No - I was not paid to say that!!!

With so many brick and mortars closing their doors, people are really starting to look online for new places to shop. And with so many offering coupons, discounts, and competitive makes the choice to shop online an easy one. However, what isn't so easy is picking an online shop to go with. In that regard, most seek out the advice of others to help them decide which shop to use when selecting products online. I'm happy to report that you can't find any gift shop more worthy than I have come to know the products and pricing really well at this shop, and I can tell you that you can't beat them. But more importantly, I have come to know the people behind the shop, and that to me is most important, and I can truly tell you that you can't find better people to help you select that special gift for someone else, than the people at An A+ shop with A+++ people.

I have just been self introduced with Mike and Kali, and what I have found are two Warm, Open and Caring people. Their website is Informative without being wordy. Their prices are Very competitive and in many ranges.

Mike and Kali along with their company will go that extra mile for you to make sure that each and every purchase is the best it can be from start to finish!

I HIGHLY recommend them as a company and as two nice people!

I honestly can't think of a reason to shop anywhere else. You can't get better or more honest people than Mike and Kali. DreamworthyGifts is just like the 'mom and pop' stores I used to shop at as a kid. Except they're cheaper and their selection's a lot better. :-)
