Best Gift Cards to Give for Presents

It can be hard thinking of a present for some people and if you don't know somebody well you don't want to risk getting them a present as it is very hard to guess what someone wants and likes. You can't get alcohol as some people don't drink, let alone getting a drink they want, chocolate is not for everyone and you don't want to spend $100 getting an Ipod!

You don't want to give money as that just appears lazy and looks like you forgot but just thought I will give them $20 so a gift card is the best choice. However even then you want the best gift cards to give as a present because you could end up getting them a gift card for a clothes shop they hate! And that is where this article comes in - showing you the very best gift cards to give as a present to that someone you are not that familiar with!

Below are the best gift cards to give to anybody whether your neighbour, second cousin, brother-in-law, teacher, boss or your friends mum!

Itunes Gift Card

If you the lucky recipient is a music fan or even just have an Ipod, Ipod Touch, Iphone, Ipad then this is the a great gift card to get. Apart from buying music, they can purchase games, apps and even films to watch on the go.

It is another excellent choice but you should check they have an Ipod first!

It is a million times better than McDonalds and is much healthier as it is all fresh, healthy food!

Gift Cards for Presents

All of these gift cards are brilliant presents for someone you don't know very well like your boss or colleague or next door neighbour.  

The best bet is an Amazon gift card as everyone loves shopping on Amazon, but other options include Itunes cards which are great for Ipod fans, Microsoft points for gamers and also SUBWAY vouchers for the food eaters (the Subway may also be good to encourage someone to have healthier food than McDonalds!)

I hope you found this article interesting and now get the right gift card for that person.
