Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of a gift card?
Gift cards make great presents for a number of reasons. If you still aren’t sure what to get for the special people in your life, gift cards make a good choice. Here are four reasons gift cards are the perfect gifts:
1. You Can Easily Stay on Budget
When you provide gift cards, it’s easier to stay on budget. You don’t have to worry about spending just a little bit more for something you see that would be “perfect” but outside your limit. With gift cards, you just decide on an amount and that’s it. It’s easier to keep to your budget because having a gift card is sort of like having cash in your hand for a specific store.
Gift cards are flexible for the recipient, allowing him or her to choose what to buy with a gift card. Purchasing a gift card takes away some of the anxiety associated with finding just the right gift. Who doesn’t like the freedom to get what they REALLY want? A gift card is a perfect way to provide a flexible gift that anyone can enjoy.
Cash is more flexible, of course, but it is sometimes considered a little crass. If you want to offer flexibility without giving actual cash, a gift card is a good choice.
3. An Element of Thoughtfulness
Of course, many people decry gift cards because they are so general. While getting a prepaid debit card or general gift card is very flexible, some people think they are impersonal.
A gift card doesn’t have to be impersonal, though. Get a gift card for essentials to show that you’ve put some thought into it. Gift cards are perfect because they combine the flexibility of cash with the personalization that comes with a specific store. You can be thoughtful and offer a flexible gift at the same time by giving a gift card.
4. Easy to Present Attractively
I love how easy it is to give a gift card. Wrapping presents can lead to messiness, as the presentation isn’t always great. Not so with a gift card. You can slip it into a beautiful holiday card and write a sincere note. There are attractive gift card holders you can buy for the right presentation too.
No one is ever disappointed to receive a gift card. Add a personal touch with a handwritten note and be choosy about where you get the gift card, and it will feel like a very personal gift, without all that comes with trying to find the right present.
Why Do People Love Giving Gift Cards?
1. Gift Cards Guarantee Gifts People Will Love
Whether you are buying a gift card from someone’s favorite clothing store or giving an electronic gift card for essential items, a gift card guarantees that people will love what you give them. Gift cards have the freedom to pick out whatever they want, and you are relieved of the stress of finding something perfect for everyone. Gift cards are also ideal if you are buying for people you don’t know that well. Purchasing gift cards will also help guarantee that there’s something for everyone, even the picky people in your life will love receiving a gift card.
2. They Save Money and Time
If you are purchasing gifts for a lot of people — a dozen or more nieces and nephews for instance — you can budget a dollar amount for each gift card. This also prevents arguments over which cousin got the better gift, because everyone gets the same amount of money. And buying a gift card saves you the time shopping for each person. Plus, even if you get a gift receipt, returning gifts can be a headache, especially right after the holidays when customer service lines are backed up to the entrance of the store.
3. You Can Buy Gifts Without Leaving Home
You don’t even have to leave your house to do your holiday shopping thanks to the convenience of purchasing a gift card on the Internet. Most stores offer online gift cards, and you can personalize them with graphics and personal messages. A lot of retailers even have an option to email an electronic gift card to someone, which is convenient for you, and it helps the receiver keep track of the gift card. If you are one of those last-minute shoppers, you can send an e-gift card at any time, even on holidays when most stores are closed.
4. They Make Giving and Receiving More Fun
Personally, I don’t shop for myself that much because I don’t put aside a lot of money in my budget for it. But if someone gave me a gift card to my favorite kitchen store, I can think of nothing I’d like to do more than wander around looking at iron woks and sharpening stones. If you know the person well, you will know exactly the stores where they would most like to shop or what type of items the person needs. It’s always nice to know that you are giving something loved ones will enjoy picking out for themselves, and a gift card is usually appreciated.
5. Gift Cards Can Be Practical
For practical people who never spend money on themselves, give them a gift card from a place where they can purchase something they need, or may not have the money for. I would gladly accept a $50 gift card for medical supplies, for instance. And for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life, a gift card is a good option.
Don’t spend all your time waiting in lines and being choosy over gifts this holiday season. Save yourself the trouble and just go for the gift card. It will make everyone happy, including your wallet.
