Shopping for hubby can be stressful. He might not be too forthcoming about anything he wants or even needs. That leaves you stuck guessing on a gift that seems lackluster especially for a person you care for so much.
Gift cards can sometimes feel like the easy way out of gift-giving… especially if you’re running to your local drug store or big box chain and pulling something off their rack of gift cards. That pretty much says, “I put no thought into this gift.”
Gift card giving doesn’t need to be a cop-out, though, and some of the best gift cards can be just as thoughtful as any other kind of gift. The important thing is to make it meaningful.
Need some help selecting the perfect gift card for your husband (or anyone else in your life). Check out these tips:
- Select a gift card that is in line with the tastes’ of the recipient
- Make sure the amount is practical
- Choose a delivery method most convenient for the recipient
- Ensure there is no expiration date or if there is one, it’s clearly labeled
