What's New at The Gift MD?


For weeks, I have had my 'nose to the grindstone' making improvements to the website, and I'm finally ready to reveal the new look!

So, what improvements have been made?

First, I have added a SEARCH BAR to every category to make it easier for you to drill down on your specific needs. Now that The Gift MD offers products from many other designers, there are thousands of products and pages to sift through. Narrow down your search by using keywords that are more focussed to your needs.

We've added a banner highlighting current DISCOUNTS. There is something on sale almost every day!

My favorite update is the new ZOOM feature! Can't see the detail or read the text in the design? Hover your mouse over the product and it will zoom in at 3 times the original size, with crystal clear visibility. Very cool!

Lastly, The Gift MD is ready for CHRISTMAS!! That's right. It's only October, but we've added a section in each category for Christmas items - Greeting Cards, U.S. Postage, Ornaments, Apparel, Mugs & Drinkware, and Beverage Coasters. Interested in another product that isn't listed? Try using the search bar with keywords like: "Christmas Magnet" or "Christmas iPhone 5 case". 

I'm pretty excited about these latest improvements and hope it makes your shopping experience more enjoyable. Drop in for a visit to check out the new and improved site!

Presenting: The Gift RX!

The Gift MD is very excited to announce the launch of our new sister site:

Throughout our lives there are often many reasons to seek the advice of a medical professional. Not all of these reasons are serious, and we can poke fun at most of them - from pimples to hot flashes, from diaper rash to hemorrhoids, from teething to dentures, and from life's little annoyances to the big pains in the 'you know what'- this is LIFE! and The Gift RX has the right prescription to make anyone feel better at all of these stages.

At The Gift RX, we take what life throws at us a little less seriously. We have sought out the most popular designs created by independent artists, placed on hundreds of products including T-shirts, mugs, greeting cards and many more items. Most of these products can be customized and are available in numerous sizes, styles, shapes and/or colors. 

Please drop by and see us - we have something for everyone!

Gifts for life's "not so serious" health and medical issues.

Hope to see you soon!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

You certainly don't have to look far to see that something PINK is happening this month! Yes, it's breast cancer awareness month and it seems that people are walking, running, riding, coloring their hair pink and doing whatever they can to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research.

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer for women, affecting 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. In the U.S. and Canada this year, approximately 315,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed, and there will be over 45,000 deaths from the disease. Of these numbers, about 3,300 of the new cases will be men. Yes, men also get breast cancer.

As with any cancer, early diagnosis increases the chance of survival. This is a good time for a reminder - check your girls on a monthly basis, have your doctor check them annually, and if you haven't had your annual mammogram yet, book one this month.

More useful information and tips are available from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure website.

At The Gift MD, we are here to help build awareness for many causes, including Breast Cancer. We have a variety of pink ribbon designs on several different products including t-shirts, greeting cards, mugs, Christmas ornaments, tote bags, buttons, stickers... the list goes on!

Here is a small sampling from our Breast Cancer Awareness category:

I am a Survivor

Pink Ribbon Reindeer from the Christmas and Holiday Collection

Viva la Cure

The Dove of Hope from the Christmas and Holiday Collection

National Cancer Survivors Day

This year Sunday, June 3 marks the 25th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. Since 1987, the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation has chosen the first Sunday in June to celebrate cancer survivorship and to show the world that life after cancer can be both meaningful and productive. "Survivor" is defined as anyone living with a history of cancer - from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.

This event is celebrated in communities across The United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, Australia and many other countries worldwide. For more information please visit the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation's website.

Here is a sampling of some of our designs and products suitable for celebrating survivorship. These designs come from our "All Cancer" ribbon category, but you can find similar products and designs by visiting The Gift MD to shop by ribbon color - it's just what the doctor ordered!


Enjoy your day!

Last call to Help us Beat Ovarian Cancer!

Re-posted from March.

This year, Sunday May 13 marks the 10th anniversary of the Run for Ovarian Cancer in London, Ontario.

All funds raised during this event are dedicated to research focused on advanced disease and to discovering a cure for ovarian cancer, going directly toward the Translational Ovarian Cancer Research Program at the London Health Sciences Centre. Since 2003, this run generates the largest amount of funding for LHSC of any non-profit organization in London with only a one-day event!

Once again, our sister site,, has entered a team of family and friends to participate in this event and we are committed to not only meeting, but to surpassing last year's fundraising efforts.

To show support for this worthy cause The Gift MD is pleased to announce that:

We will donate 100% of ALL royalties earned on ALL sales in our Zazzle store through for the next 2 months!

You read that right! From March 13 until May 13, 2012 (run day), ALL royalties earned on purchases of The Gift MD awareness products will go directly to sponsor Team Sunflower Sisters in the Run for Ovarian Cancer.

Please pass this good news on to family, friends, co-workers.... and to complete strangers for that matter! Raise awareness for your favourite cause while supporting research for a cure for ovarian cancer - the deadliest of all gynaecological cancers.

If you are in the area and wish to join our team, or if you would like to make a cash donation towards this cause, please visit the Sunflower Sisters Team Page.

Remember, if US$ is not your home currency, visit and click on the links to any of our international sites. Royalties earned at our international sites will also count towards this campaign.

Thank you for your generous support!
