With Christmas just around the corner, it’s always hard to decide what to get for the loved ones in your life. And, if you are like me, you don’t like long line-ups, crowded malls, or busy parking lots…does anyone like these things? Rather than buy a gift you are not quite sure about (both from your perspective and from the recipient’s point of view), perhaps, you may consider Gift Cards this holiday season. I know that I certainly love getting Gift Cards as then I can choose exactly what I want to buy!
A few options to add some creativity to your Gift Cards:
1) Pair the Gift Card with another Gift
2) Use creativity to wrap up the Gift Card (e.g with an Ornament)
3) Put the Gift Card in a Stocking
4) Choose a Gift Card based on Personality (Best Buy Card for a Techie, iTunes Card for a Music Lover, Nordstrom Card for a Fashionista, etc).
The huge benefits of Gift Cards include it’s easy to get, easy to give, personalized as the recipient can choose whatever they like, it’s a great last minute gift idea, great for Secret Santa Gift Exchanges, and more! It’s always good to give gifts to people whose interests you might not know as well (e.g. boss, coworkers, neighbours, service providers, etc). If you are unsure of which Gift Cards to get Restaurant Gift Cards, Amazon Gift Cards, or Visa/MasterCard Gift Cards are safe, universal options which will appeal to a broad audience! Many Grocery Stores carry hundreds of Gift Cards so you are spoiled for variety and options! Also, there are “variable” Gift Card options so you can load any amount you want onto the card up to $500.
