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.

2. Where to find deals on plus-sized boys clothing

[The Dollar Stretcher] This article conflicts me. I mean, it’s a thorough and helpful take on the topic. But plus-sized clothes for kids? Isn’t the best way to save money – and a young life – to put the kid on a diet?

3. How you can confront the beliefs limiting you from starting a business

[Dollarversity] There’s lots of nuts-and-bolts advice out there about starting a business. This is all about what’s going on inside your head that might be holding you back.

4. Do you have spending guilt or frugality disease?

[Financial Samurai] Speaking of psychology and money, here’s a story about why you may be saving money – there’s a right reason and a wrong reason.

5. How to receive great customer service

[Consumerism Commentary] Here’s some advice that’s not strictly about the holidays, but it’ll sure come in handy this time of year, when you’re dealing with more salespeople than any other month. Best advice, which costs nothing? “Be nice.”
