Gift Cards
A Great Touch this Season

Sometimes people are a little bit reluctant to give gift cards as presents either during the holiday season or for birthdays. Maybe some folks feel that it’s not personal enough and they really want to show off their ability to choose really great gifts. Don’t be that person! It’s not about you; it’s about the person receiving the gift. The reality is that gift cards are the most wanted gift by women and the third most wanted gift by men. They have become incredibly popular and for good reason. They allow people to choose the exact gift that they want. Many people get a lot more excited about going out and shopping for themselves with what they might consider to be some ‘free money’ than they are about an item someone else has picked out for them.

Gift Cards are good for So Many Reasons

1.Returns

Now confess, you have returned a gift in the past, haven’t you? Just about everybody has. If you don’t have a gift receipt, it can be pretty awkward to go back to the person that gave you the gift and tell them that you’d like to return it. Have you ever had to go back to your Mother or Father to tell them you want to return their gift? Even worse, what about asking your grandmother or grandfather? Even if you do have a gift receipt, don’t you tend to worry that the person who gave you the gift will ask about it some time and you will then have to confess that you returned it? When you are giving a gift, save somebody from this situation and simply give them a gift card. Then you know that there’s really no chance that this would get returned.

2.Gift Cards are Portable

This is especially helpful for people that are doing a lot of traveling during the holidays. You may not think much about what you’ll have to carry when you are doing your shopping but it can really add up. If you’re going somewhere for the holidays and you have to bring all your gifts with you then you can end up with more stuff than you can carry, trying to get onto a train or an airplane. If you get everybody on your list gift cards then all of the shopping for a particular holiday can fit into a single envelope. It’s not only easier for the person who is receiving gifts, but gift cards make things a little bit easier on you too.

3.Gift Cards can be used for anything

It used to be that you got a gift card for a particular store chain and you were somewhat limited when it came to the things that could be purchased with that card. If you have ever received a card for specific store you may have been in a situation where it’s either going to take a long time to travel to the nearest location or you find that once you get there that they really don’t have something that you like. Now you can get gift cards for things like amazon.com where you can buy just about anything under the sun.

4.You can use Gift Cards Online

Another big new advantage to gift cards is that many of them can be used online now. Not only can you give somebody exactly what they want by giving them a gift card, but they don’t even have to leave the house to choose it. Many of the big box stores now allow you to use gift cards online and you can also opt for something like a gift card for iTunes so that someone can download their favorite music with it.

Give the Gift that Can Be Just about Anything

Gift cards are often the perfect gift because they end up being exactly what the recipient wants them to be. Now with so many different options about how to use them and where they can be used, they make one of the best gifts possible. According to women, they are the best gift possible. Not only do they make things nice for the person giving the gift, but they make things a lot easier for the person who is buying the gift as well.
