We launched a new website for Gifts for Seniors earlier this year and we love the new look! Gifts for Seniors provides isolated seniors with a wonderful service in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, providing them with donated gifts and personal contact to help keep them engaged and connected with the community. They wanted a website that was easy to use, clean and professional, and most importantly had a nice updated look that represented the organization well. We worked together to create something that fit what they were looking for and gave them a nice polished look!



Their website is run by WordPress, giving them a great user-friendly content management system where they can edit and maintain their website. We used a Genesis theme for the website, and customized the colors to match their brand color scheme. We added a lot of great photos throughout the site that help to bring a nice warm look to the website. The Gift Catalog page features a list of things they are asking people to donate money towards, allowing people to easily pick out some items and pay through PayPal. Their Wish List includes a written list of things they are needing if you live in the nearby area and can drop off items to their gift barrels. Each page on the site has a nice green button where you can click to easily Give Now through PayPal, as well as easy access to sign up for their email newsletter. Overall, the site is clean and stylish, it achieves the user-friendliness they were after, and gives users a nice feel for the organization.


Lynne Morioka, on the Board of Directors for Gifts for Seniors, had this to say about working with us:

We’re overjoyed with our new website. Not only is it beautiful, it gives us the functionality we so desperately needed. Working with Shannon was a great experience. She helped keep us on track, works very quickly and the end result is a high quality site at a reasonable rate.

Thank you so much Lynne! We loved working with Gifts for Seniors and really enjoy the new site as well. Check out the website at and let us know what you think in the comments below!
