Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, engagement parties, house warming, the list goes on. No matter what time of year, there is always going to be an event on that needs celebrating and gift giving. While it’s fun having so many events to go to and plenty of time to see friends and family, it can also be incredibly stressful with the added pressure of having to find the perfect gift. Your friend may claim they aren’t fussy, but one wrong decision could label you as the “bad gift giver”, leaving you with a lousy reputation and a waste of money. With all the other busy life stuff happening all around you, it’s hard to find the time to go out shopping for the right present for your friends or loved ones. This is where you need to find a solution, and luckily I have one for you.
Gift cards. I know, simple right? Well, the humble gift card is making a come back, and thanks to the internet they are easier than ever to purchase with an almost limitless variety of brand choices, like the ones offered by Gift Card Planet. By choosing to gift your friend with a gift card, you are allowing them to have total freedom to buy exactly what they want on their special day. No more fake thank-you’s and awkward hugs, they will be delighted that you were thoughtful enough to leave the decision up to them. Now they can choose exactly what it is that they want. You could even buy a gift card at a place you know they want something from, but was too expensive for you to give as a gift, the gift card can go towards that luxury coffee machine or surf board. With so many companies now connected by the same owner or have agreements with other companies, buying one gift card could mean they have access to a whole bunch of stores. It really is a great gift idea, and you can avoid that new “bad gift giver” nickname!
