Updated on April 1, 2011

So you waited to the last minute again, and now you're running around like a chicken without a head trying to find that perfect gift right? Well, let's leave the hectic mall traffic behind, and finish up your holiday shopping in a jiffy with an gift card.

With millions of products available, Amazon sells just about everything you could think of. Don't waste your money on a lame gift that the special someone on your list doesn't want or already has. Give he or she the flexibility to buy what they really want, and make their holiday a little brighter!

Amazon offers gift cards in any denomination from $10 to $1,000 so you can spend as little or as much as you want. Purchasing gift cards from Amazon couldn't be easier, and the card can be sent to you or the intended recipient in any of the following ways:

  • By Mail. Amazon offers free next day shipping on gift card purchases. You'll have the option to include a personalized card and note free of charge!
  • Via Facebook.That's right, as long as that person on your list has a facebook account (and who doesn't right) you can send them a personalized gift card instantly, which they can use right away!
  • Via Email. As long as you know your friends email address, you can send the personalized gift card right to their email box.
  • Print at Home.You can print your gift certificate along with a personalized message right from your home or office computer.

      Amazon gift cards are a great way to quickly finish holiday shopping, and are a perfect gift choice for that hard to shop for person. I buy gift cards for lots of people on my list, because they are a convenient way to give someone the option to receive a gift that he or she really wants. Another benefit is that the cards ship free, and I am all about saving money without cutting corners.
