Gift cards sometimes get a bad rap. If you purchase them from the right source, there is no concern about expiration dates, fraud, or over charges. Please don't purchase any gift cards from websites you have not heard of, offering a discount, they are not real. I must admit, I just received an e-gift card from Nordstrom, and I was giddy with excitement! If you still don't know what to gift someone, a gift card could be just the thing. Scroll down to read all about a new way of gifting called "Gift Now."
Amazon Gift Cards
The world is their oyster at Amazon. I mean what can't you buy there? I think it is especially good for tweens and teens. They can find all of their fave sports gear and jerseys. The girls can find cosmetics and hair care. One can even find designer fashion amidst the electronics and books. It really is perfect. Choose an E-Card, Printable Card, or a boxed mailed card like above.
Have you seen this? It is a new way of sending the perfect gift. It is instant and stress free. It works like this: You pick out a gift you think your BFF, Mom, Dad, Hubby or anyone on your list will love. Your gift is delivered immediately via email, and they "open" it online! So even last minute gifts arrive on time. The recipient can adjust or exchange before it arrives. In the end, your giftee really gets what they want. Genius! Many of the luxury retailers are doing it. Get a great explanation with video at Neiman Marcus
