Gift cards have been around for a considerably long time, and don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, and for good reason! Gift cards are great when you don't quite know what to get for that loved one... OR perhaps it might be that you don't quite have the time to go shopping and finding that "perfect" gift for that special relative or friend. One may also look at gift cards as being beneficial because they give the "gift receiver" an option when it comes on to picking out exactly what it is that they would like, rather than having to return it because it's a size too small/large, or because they simply would've preferred something else. And yet, I am quite sure that there are some of us out there that actually find a personal thrill out of going shopping for gifts, whether it's Christmas gifts, a gift for someone's anniversary, or anything like that... So, it's up to you now...What do you think? Apart from the benefits above, does it save your time, effort and money to use gift cards for gifts, or would you rather buy the gift yourself? Let me know folks!
