Gift Cards Are a Nice Way To Say Thank You

Many people I know would rather receive a gift card than a gift. At one time, gift cards were thought of as impersonal. Now gift cards are expected. Giving a gift card is like giving cash. The best part of gift cards is, the recipient can spend it when they want to and when they need to.

Do you know that you can email gift cards? This has to be one of the greatest inventions since sliced bread. No card and no postage is needed to put a smile on someone's face.

Video Message

In the video, the author mentions that a small percentage of people have gift cards on their list. This thought made me think of the gifts that I have received and have never used. Do you have any items in your closet that were given to you for Christmas that you never used?

You get my point. Gift cards are accepted, expected and never rejected! Give one today for the next big occasion!

Online Gift Cards

Gift giving does not have to be difficult. You don't need to try and figure out what people want for Christmas, when you can simply give a gift card online.

Online shopping has been around for sometime now. It is the wave of today – it is the norm. Before there were gift cards, purchasing gifts was a little more challenging.

    MoneyCreator24, gift cards are a great idea. People should do it more often. Sometimes we think we know people, and have this great gift idea -- but our idea isn't their idea. So I stick with gift cards, especially if I am guessing on a gift. Thanks for the Vote UP! Seeya round!

    Good point Lady_E, you can get gift cards at varying amounts. It feels good to hold a gift card in the hand. I think people like them.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    It's a brilliant Idea - People can get what they want and need. Also, they are not costly. In UK, they cost as little as £5.

    Good reminder. Thanks.

    SJKSJK, I know what you mean about giving a tangible gift to someone instead of a gift card. You can always ask the individual what they want -- which may ruin the surprise. Most people would rather get a gift they can use. One other thing you can do is, purchase a gift and get a gift receipt and give it to the person. Gift giving can be challenging in itself. My motto is, "give a gift intentionally and from the heart." Don't think you can loose with this method. Thanks for checking in with me.

    Have a great day!

    I love gift cards and give them quite often, but I always wish I knew something that the person really wants so I could get that instead. I enjoyed reading your hub. Very informative
