Graduation Gift - Life on Record

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Dolls123. Congratulations! My nephew is graduating from high school at the end of this month. This is not just a friend's son who I can buy a personalized pen for. This is my nephew! The gift has to be good!

So... how does a personalized CD with recorded messages from family and friends sound? Can I pull it off? Not by myself! That's where Life on Record comes in. This is a great service!

When you set up an account, they give you a toll-free phone number and an invitation number that you can give to all the relatives and friends you want. When they call in, their message is recorded... thoughts, stories, memories, greetings... whatever they want to say. And when they record the message, they have the opportunity to preview it and change it if they choose.

When all the messages have been recorded (by your deadline), you download the messages to iTunes and create a CD. It is so simple. And if you're not comfortable making your own CD, they can do that for you, too, as well as personalized CD labels. Now, I have a unique yet affordable gift for my nephew.

This would be a thoughtful birthday gift, an anniversary keepsake, wedding gift, or even a cool gift for a teacher at the end of the year. It's definitely one of a kind!

My daughter is graduating from Adult education and I am proud. It was not easier for her. This would be great because her grandparents are in Florida and her aunt in virginia.

How cool, and what a neat idea! My father-in-law's birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and this would be perfect! All of his kids live in different States, and none of us have seen him for 2 years. He even has a granddaughter he has never met. How fun would it be for everyone to record him a birthday greeting around the U.S. and put it together all on one CD?! Very neat idea!

I would use this to make a birthday CD for my mom. I like that supposedly it's easy to use: "It's simple - Your guests just dial a phone and talk!" Everybody I know can use a phone! Sounds great!
