How to Shop Christmas Eve | e-mail Gift Cards
One Week Before Christmas – There’s Still Time for the Right Gift! | Gift Cards
18 Dec 2010, Here we are folks. There is one week to go and a one full weekend ahead to get that just right gift for folks on your list. The question you have to ask yourself is “Do I really want to spend my time at the Mall?” or “If I shop online can they get it there in time?” or “will the item still be IN Stock?” Well the one stop answer for all the questions just mentioned is Amazon.com.
Amazon offers gift cards for a plethora of retailers a few of which will be highlighted below. The cool thing about giving a gift card is that the receiver can hold off a bit and look for the sales, along with picking out EXACTLY the right item for themselves; taking the pressure off of you (This is particularly helpful for us guys when it comes to giving clothes to our hunies). Though believe it or not the folks that really feel the pressure of ‘liked gift anxiety’ are most often women. Not a sexist comment just a life observation.
If you are reading this after the mail and shipping deadlines have passed, have no fear the e-mail option in the Amazon Gift Card is a life saver. So here are some pretty cool last minute options for some of the hardest people to buy for.
Dollar Amounts are Flexible
For your Gamer definitely will be appreciated
Here is the one that gives you plenty of options as you can personalize the gift card by category and season and even send it by email. This will be particularly handy on on the 23rd and 24th. For that matter even Christmas morning!
I just wanted to take a moment and remind you that this season is about love, not money, so if the pressure builds and you start feeling stressed, take a few moments go have a cup of Hot Chocolate or Coffee or your favorite beverage amidst the hustle and bustle and contemplate the fact that those who love you, do so because you are who you are, not what you give for a pressie. When the shopping is done and you are safe at home relax again this time with those you love and just enjoy the pleasure of their company, take it from someone who knows; time is the most valuable thing you have to give, give it freely and well to those you love.
Have a Merry Christmas.
