(BPT) - Have you ever received a bad gift? Maybe Aunt Debbie gave you a bag of expired candy or your sibling gifted you a restaurant coupon. Perhaps your co-worker baked you peanut butter cookies and forgot you’re allergic to peanuts or your boss gave you a lovely scotch, but you don’t drink alcohol.
If you’ve ever had this happen to you, you might be a bit nervous about committing the same gift giving faux pas. Luckily, you don’t have to run the risk of gifting your loved ones something they won’t use or that will make them break out in hives. Gift cards are a great way to celebrate friends and family without the risks of getting it wrong.
Gift cards offer availability, flexibility and convenience all in one because they’re almost always in stock, can be purchased online, and recipients get to decide what to buy with the gift cards. They’re also a more thoughtful alternative to gifting cash because you can choose from a variety of options tailored to the recipient.
For example, Giftcards.com’s Choice Gift Cards can be used to purchase items from up to seven stores or restaurants pictured on the card. For the fashionista in your life, the Retail Therapy card gives them the chance to pick out the perfect outfit or cosmetics from one of their favorite brands. For the avid gamer, the Game and Grub card keeps them fueled with food and credits while playing their latest gaming purchase. And for the person who’s always hardest to shop for, the Happy Holidays card offers a variety of options from retail, dining and entertainment — there’s something for everyone.
