In our family, it’s the twenty-somethings. They certainly don’t want toys, unless they’re made by Apple and come with hefty price tags, and they don’t own their own homes yet, so a new rake is probably not going to give them much of a thrill. In all seriousness, it can be difficult to buy gifts for some folks. That’s why Gift Cards are so useful. You give money to spend, and if you choose the right one, you’ll also allow them to have some fun shopping at a place you know they enjoy spending money at.
And then there is the issue of time. I remember one Holiday Season (before the explosion of online shopping) which I spent working for the entire month of December, finally getting half a day off on New Year’s Eve. I had no time to shop, and the only folks who sold gift cards sold them for use at their own store.
Anyway, it’s never been easier to purchase a gift card online. But did you know that we even find those at discounts? Or with some sort of “Free” item over and above the value of the card? Yup. So now more than ever, a Gift Card is a great idea.
And though you still have plenty of time to have an actual gift sent to someone you love, if it’s free “spending money” you want to give as a gift or to stuck a stocking, here’s where you can save some money even on that.
