A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the Web. This week: gifts that keep on giving, big deals on big kids' clothes, giving yourself the business, saving for the right reason, and how to get great service for nothing.

1. 31 great gifts that keep on giving

[Wise Bread] The idea here is that these gifts won’t end up in a drawer, forgotten even before New Year’s Eve. Among them: cooking classes, magazine subscriptions, and something called the food-of-the-month club.
