Its likely you have completed most of your holiday shopping, but could there be anyone you may have missed? A friend, or family member that you could not quite find the perfect gift for, despite your efforts? How about stocking stuffers?

Are Gift Cards the New Fruit Cakes?

You cant deny a gift cards versatility and low calorie count.  And when sending them through the mail they sure beat the fruit cake in postage, and one more thing, the receiver does not have to share their gift card when it arrives! Although they have been accused of being slightly impersonal, a gift card can sure shine when you are short on time.  They also fit really well in stockings.

Make a Impersonal Gift Card, Personal
How do you change a impersonal item into a “cherished, I can’t believe you thought of me gift”?  Make it a gift card to somewhere you know they would really enjoy shopping.  Or for something you know they need or could use.  Almost any retailer has a gift card/gift certificate available. Here are some of our suggestions:
