Left your holiday shopping to the last minute? No stress!
eGift cards = electronic gift cards.
They can typically be sent directly to the recipient via email (and some, even timed to deliver on December 25th). Or, you can send it to yourself and transfer it to the recipient or print it out.
Check with the retailer's terms and conditions first.
They are a good last minute gift. If you're overwhelmed shopping for dozens and dozens of people, hosting family, cooking dinners etc. etc., it takes one thing off your plate.
You don't have to brave the malls, or worry about finding parking.
You just have to go online, add to cart and press buy.
Note, when buying gift cards (which people often pass off as not thoughtful.... and I vehemently disagree!), think carefully about something that the recipient would LOVE to receive and use (not what's easiest, or something YOU may like).
Even better, what is something they wouldn't get themselves. Is there a purse they've been coveting but pass off as too expensive? Have they been holding out investing in a new journal? Is there a book or store they cannot stop talking about?
Listening is the first step to understanding what could be the perfect gift.
Based on the ever official self-research, of being a woman. :)
Wishing you happy eGifting!
