A wedding is one of the most special days planned in a life. Everything must
be perfect, thought of and taken care of so that the wedding day turns out
as beautiful as a dream.
A normal wedding takes months to properly plan, takes many to be involved
and becomes the focus of many family members and friends.
The tradition of a wedding gift to the parents of the bride or groom, the
bridal party and other family members and friends taking part in the wedding
began as a sign or gesture of thanks.

To show your appreciation or heartfelt thanks, think of a gift idea that
expresses your true feelings.
1. A handwritten thank you note sharing a favorite memory or thanking
someone for the part they played is always something meaningful.
2. A personalized or customized gift with the wedding date or wedding
3. A special photograph of the bridegroom or a photograph that includes the
family member or friend that you are giving the gift to.
Some special gift ideas for the groomsmen are personalized sport equipment
(such as baseball bats, putters, baseballs, etc.), personalized leather
valets or travel bags.
Gift ideas for women are customized bracelets with your wedding colors,
engraved jewelry boxes, or charm bracelets.
More and more people as they get married are also gifting their parents with
special gifts of appreciation. Some of the most meaningful gift ideas for
parents are poems, jewelry or simply a handwritten note. Each of these items
are easily a keepsake gift item that will be treasured for a lifetime.
Memory foam mattresses seem to be all the rage these days. From the early 1990′s when the industry leader, Tempur-Pedic, came out with its space-age foam formula to today, these mattresses have seen a tremendous amount of improvements on the both the price and quality front. In terms of quality, these mattresses are expected to retain their “natural” shape for much longer than traditional innerspring mattresses (about twice as long, actually) and their “normal sag” is about 1/3 as deep as what owners could expect from a coil product. So quality is definitely present with memory foam.
Another big feature that has improved over the years is support. Today’s foam products offer such fantastic support that some guarantee improvements in lower back and chronic back pain to their customers. Talk about putting their money where their mouths are!
So, yes, there are plenty of fantastic reasons why today’s consumers have turned what was formerly a very narrow niche into its own full-fledged mattress market. In fact, this is such a broad market that, as with any market, prices fluctuate from one extreme to the other, ranging from value brands that will charge about $500 for a queen size memory foam mattress all the way up to over $5,000 for a full set from the “big names.”
So what is the big difference between these products (and everything in between)?
In a word: buyer expectations. There are many reasons why so many Tempur-Pedic owners complain about their mattress and why so few discount memory foam mattress owners have nothing but praises for their product. (Of course, there are many Tempur owners who just love their mattress as well; and likewise there are always some complaints about the cheaper brands). But ultimately, expectations play a big role.
Let’s look at it another way. If you choose to pay $5,000 for a product instead of $500 for something that is virtually the same in terms of longevity, support and comfort, which one better last longer? Which better meet your comfort expectations? Which better fix your lower back problems faster? The answer is obvious – the more expensive one had better do a better job of the same things the cheaper one can do.
With memory foam, this is not the case. In the end, the cheap double mattress Tempur product will have been better engineered to create a lasting-comfort experience and will also have better airflow, but consumers always seem to ask: is it ten times as better? In most cases, the answer is no. This leads to complaints, especially if their friend, neighbor or relative has a cheaper foam mattress that they feel is doing a wonderful job. Because even the expensive mattresses will wear down and need to be replaced, eventually (no, they do not last 10 times longer!)
The Big Aberration
A structured settlement is an insurance arrangement where the claimant
accepts to resolve a personal injury tort claim or to compromise a statutory
periodic payment obligation as defined by the Internal Revenue Code. Terms
may include reimbursement for medical and legal expenses and rehabilitation,
and long-term payments for loss of income or as compensation for other
injuries. This is considered less costly than lump sum payment for the
insurance company. Although a structured settlement offered a guaranteed
income to the person, it cannot meet his immediate or unexpected financial
needs such as medical expenses, debt payment, or new business opportunities.
However, it can be sold to settlement purchasers like *J.G.
*and get cash in a matter of days.
Federal laws and state laws in the US help people sell their structured
settlements in a risk-free manner. A person can sell his structured
settlement by forwarding documentation containing the insurance company’s
name and settlement payment plan to *J.G. Wentworth*. The company will then
provide a free quote. If the person is interested with the offer, he will
send a copy of his structured policy and the settlement agreement. The two
parties will then draw up a mutual agreement which will then be submitted to
the court for approval along with the application for selling the structured
settlement. The court reviews the application to confirm if it is in the
best interests of the applicant. The company does all the processing. With
the largest structured settlement purchaser in the US, those who are selling
are assured that they will be getting the best price.
