Save Time – Find the Perfect Gift on Micro Jobs Sites

happy dog handmade paintingLooking for a custom, handmade item for that special someone that “has everything”? Maybe you need the perfect birthday or anniversary present?  Discover unusual and unique gifts on micro jobs websites.

Try searching for crafts on these sites. You will find high-quality products that are handmade, reasonably priced and sometimes one-of-a-kind. For instance, you can have an artist transform a picture of your friend’s dog into a painting.  Paintings, artistic drawings, personalized videos, family portraits, knitting, etc., are at your fingertips with one click.

Websites with crafty niches are growing at a steady rate, as individuals love beautiful, handcrafted items. There are things to avoid when searching, though. I will provide you with the information you need to find the perfect gift.

Decide how much you want to spend.

  •  This helps you avoid overspending on an item you can’t afford. It’s easy to get distracted with the variety of interesting items, and like me, you might find you want to buy everything. Keep shopping-sprees in check with a budget.

You may need to pay for shipping and handling for your product delivery.

  •  If your item requires mailing, be sure to include shipping and handling in your budget. The seller will have a separate price set for delivery, so make sure you look for it.

Decide when you need your item delivered.

  • This helps you select which listing to choose, especially if a seller has lots of orders in their queue. If you don’t mind the order arriving late, because it’s the perfect item, then that’s great.  To avoid delivery disappointment, though, look at the “Expected Date Of Delivery” and how many orders are in line before yours.

Examine your options.

  •  You never know what you will find.  Avoid buying the first thing you see because you might miss something special. Browse first, then go back to view favourite items.

Ensure there are samples to review.

  • To make a smart buying decision, you need to see work samples. If you like a listing, with no sample images, send the seller a request for sample pictures. If the seller doesn’t respond, or if they won’t provide you with samples, then it’s their loss, not yours. You don’t want to buy from someone without proof of their work, or if they won’t bother to reply to a message. Give your hard-earned money to reliable sellers.

Will your item need customization?

  •  As you are browsing, see if the seller provides “extra services” on the bottom of the listing. Many handmade item sellers let buyers pay a little extra for customizations. Unique items are special and often worth the additional cost.
  • If you need a lot of customization, message the seller with a detailed description of exactly what you need, and save the text in your word processing program; then copy and paste it to other sellers if necessary. This will save time, as you don’t have to re-write the same description; plus, you will get exactly what you order, with no surprises.
  •  Realize that specific custom work will be more expensive. Message the seller to determine the cost before purchasing an item.
  • If you have pictures of your dream item, provide them to the seller. Even if it’s just an sketch of the finished product, the more information you can provide, the better the result.
  • Customization usually requires more time than generic items, as the product is made to suit just you.

Finding the perfect handmade item will wow your gift recipient, especially if the item is customized for their taste.   A special gift shows that you care enough to put extra time and effort into having something handmade.  Even though handmade products sometimes cost more than other gifts, they prove worth the investment, as they’re not some generic chain store item.  Your friend or relative will feel special and appreciate and cherish their handmade item.
