    Experience Gift web site - please review

    This is a experience and activity web site that was recently launched. Products are continually being added. A gift reminder service will shortly be added.

    I'd appreciate it if you would help review the site and let me know any thoughts for improving it. What do you like etc etc.

    Many thanks

    Hey, looks nice and friendly! I like smiling faces.

    Check page bottom under firefox 1.5.

    The post is short since the website is good.

    Great. Thanks. I'm a little concerned that the site may be slow with the Flash. How did you find it?

    Good site ! But you may work on few more ideas....

    1) Group you Gift ideas into Special Occassions eg. Valentine, Father's day, Mother's day, coming Teacher's day etc.

    2) The header flash would look more attractive if it covers the entire collage space, I mean remove the blue frames on both sides

    Thanks candidindia - I was thinking of grouping the themes into sub categories eg. sailing, aerobatics, jet fighters. I could also have a separate area that groups by special occasions.

    Flash banner wasn't good, wasn't bad. I don't wait it to load and browse down.

    Maybe slightly more "web 2.0" style would appeal. Good luck!

    Nice site

    slight display error - mac firefox - email box in left side column is wider than the column itself....

    apart from that - I found the top buttons a little messy looking especially since there is so much on screen...

    great site

    Thanks to everyone

    Thanks guys. Really appreciate your insights.
    Some minor work to do but overall view is good.

    Any ideas on how I can improve sticky side of site?

    I tested on broadband.

    Well right on your homepage I noticed "Search for Experience Gift Ideas" heading and other headings bordered with rounded corners and dotted border then (top border, right half), and it looks like something is wrong here (for me) - you may want to usability test it more.

    Good luck!
