Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 3, 2010
Every year, Americans get so many unwanted gifts that over half admit to having given away Christmas presents before ever opening them. This year, the choices for customized gifts tailored for recipients have expanded significantly. Gift givers can start with the categories below and personalize from there.
1. Best for Athletes – YouBar’s Fresh, Custom Energy Bars. Active, health conscious people love nothing more than healthy, portable snacks. Personalize one especially for a on-the-go person who needs to recharge without slowing down. YouBar offers fresh, custom energy bars that don’t just let the customer name the bar for that favorite person, but also let them choose all the ingredients so that it’s absolutely perfect for specific tastes and dietary needs. For those not exactly sure about the latest trendy diet, the selection of a gift certificate so the recipient can design their own perfect energy bar is the answer. Now that’s energy-packed love!

You can make sure they’re always looking at something you both love by designing a custom case for the must-have gadget. With personalization, the must-have gadget becomes differentiated from the crowd and becomes a much-viewed "framed" picture.
