It is often difficult to be creative with gifts at Christmas. Often we just buy gifts and hope for the best, knowing that a few weeks later these gifts will be put in a cupboard and left to gather dust.
But what if there was a gift that was not only fun, and uber-cool, but was also a gift that could be used for many years, and could generate tens of thousands of dollars?
Today we are going to look at buying websites, and our 5 reasons that they make a killer gift for a family member or loved one.
1 – It is what they love – does your son love Football? Is your brother passionate about street cars? There are websites on almost every subject on the planet. If your father likes antiques, perhaps buy him an antiques and collectibles blog.
2 – They rise in value – ipods, cars, toys, computers, video games, mobile phones… they all have one thing in common: they drop in value very quickly. Websites can grow in value, and with a little love and care they can become very valuable very quickly.
3 – Longevity – Even the latest mobile phone will be worthless in 18 months. But websites generally become more valuable with age. How many other gifts could provide entertainment and value for decades?
4 – Give them a business – Once a website starts making money it is technically a business. You can buy web businesses for as little as $20 and this gives people invaluable real world experience, business lessons and a look into a possible new career option.
5 – Meet new people – There is no better way to meet huge amounts of like minded people in a short period of time than owning a blog or website. I have met hundreds of inspirational people and contacts from owning websites.
Ok, so now you want to buy a website, but where do you get them from?
Sitepoint.com is a popular choice.

Remember, a website is for life, not just for Christmas.
