Editorial & Disclosure Policy

At Gifts Made Easy, our aim is to help you our reader to discover the ideal gift for your loved ones, friends, or colleagues.

Part of how we do this is to recommend gifts, cards, wrapping, stores, events, and more. Below, you can find more information on our editorial process, including how we pick products stores, and events, and how we may be compensated through our content.

Editorial Process

Our main aim as a content-based resource is to find the best gift and related solutions for you our reader. That may include finding the best gift ideas for particular occasions, interests, relations, and more, or it may be recommending some of the best stores, platforms or events for those items.

As part of our editorial process, we are 100% committed to providing useful, accurate, and practical information, above all else. For product reviews, and where time does not allow us to write content personally, we try to find writers who have some experience with the types of products being reviewed.

We are passionate about sharing great gift and related ideas and will always welcome suggestions on how we may do that better. 

Each article and post we publish has hours of research, writing, fact-checking and editing behind it, and each article is reviewed by several editors, including Alison Mobberley, our Lead Editor, and Rob Mobberley, our Managing Editor as well as other members of the Gifts Made Easy team.

Affiliate Links & Recommendations

In many of our articles, we may earn a small commission when readers purchase products through our links, at no extra cost to the reader.

This doe not affect the choice of products we include in our articles. All of the products we highlight are recommended for their quality, uniqueness and relevance independent of any affiliate relationships.

In fact, many of our gift and other product recommendations come from small, boutique retailers, shops, and makers that make smaller batches of items and don’t offer any sort of affiliate relationships at all.

The small commissions we may make from our content enable us to pay our writers the best rates possible and to allow us to put as much time and energy into the research and side of our review process.

Where we have received items to review directly from makers, brands or retailers, we will mention them within the article or review. Where any brands have requested and paid for a promotion or advertising we will show this as “Sponsored.”

Amazon Associates & Other Programs

Our reputation as a place to find great gift ideas helps us determine those items we recommend to our readers.
