This is an extra special giveaway for one reason…IT IS AWESOME! This has been one of the coolest things I have been able to review. Love my technical gadgets as you well know by now and this one did not disappoint. Had a cracked open the book a little sooner I would have run this giveaway throughout the entire gift guide to give you a chance to get in as many entries as possible.

I do own a digital frame, but the Ceiva Pro80 is not your average digital frame. What makes it so different is how you get the photos to the frame as well as some cool added features. All photos are sent to the frame via a phone line, broad band, or WiFi. So let’s say my Aunt B in North Carolina has a frame that I thoughtfully purchased for her for Christmas (ok so I don’t have an Aunt B but just image anyway). The kids school photos roll around and I want to send them to her. I’m TERRIBLE about getting things out in the mail and if she waits for that they may be out of the house by the time she receives them. Thankfully since I bought her the Ceiva Pro80 frame she doesn’t have to wait. I simply go to my account (that she invited me to join) upload the photos and they will show up on her frame. Is that SUPER COOL or what!
The frame holds up to the last 60 photos sent to it. Let’s say though that I’m at a baseball game and just took a great photo of my son hitting a home run, and all I have with me is my photo. I can actually upload right from my phone to her frame. Or maybe I have a ton of photos in Facebook, not to worry I can upload right from Facebook. Ceiva has made it so there is no excuse in getting photos to your loved ones in a snap!
Another feature that I love is the channel feature. Some of the cool channels I’ve added to my own frame is the weather channel, a day in sports, horoscope, and my favorite the holiday counter. These channels rotate right in with your other photos.
My digital frame came with two face plates both black and brown which is great depending on what type of decor you have in your home. However Ceiva didn’t stop there, you can also purchase additional skins for your frame through Skin It (another awesome service I’ve used with my iPhone) Maybe you want funky and fun instead of traditional solid color. Let the frame show off your own personality.
The menu is very easy to move through with up/down/and side buttons. In addition to these already cool features you can also use a timer function to turn your frame on and off. I currently have mine set to turn on around 9am and turn off at 10pm. This is a great energy saver because I really don’t need my pictures displaying while I’m off counting sheep.
You do have to purchase a photo plan with your frame, the great thing is that your frame goes with the first year for free. I think this is an excellent way of allowing you to see just how valuable the frame is. Plans range from $6.95-$9.95 a month depending on if you sign up for an annual or monthly plan.
Now a word from our sponsor (I’ve always wanted to say that.)
