This is a sponsored post For Those Hard to Buy For People on Your List. All thoughts are my own.
With Christmas under a month away, you might be making your own list and checking it twice, trying to figure out what to buy the people on your list. It’s hard. You never know what they have; what they need; what they actually like. Or there are some people on your list that you want or feel like you need to buy a present for that you might not know that well, or even want to spend that much on, like the mail person, the trash collectors, and other people in your life. So what should you do?
Gift cards are a great way to go.I know people immediately groan at the thought. I am not sure why. I love getting a gift card. I don’t look at it like they didn’t put thought into it. I look at it as they want to make sure I am able to get something that I actually want. So why should you buy a gift card?
- Unless someone has told you specifically what they want for Christmas, you might have no idea. They might have it already. So get a tech loving friend a gift card to Best Buy. Get a DIY loving friend a gift card to Lowes.
- A person can use a gift card their way. Maybe there is a great sale on something that they love. The person can use the gift card and make it go even further.
- People feel even more weird about giving cash than they do with gift cards. So give an Amex card so they can use it when they have a tight month. It is an easy and subtle way of giving them a helping hand, without giving them a hand out. You can even pick up a couple to keep on hand to help your own budget out.
- Gift cards are great to just have on hand. You never know when you will realize that you forgot someone on your list. Most gift cards don’t lose their balance, so you can store them for as long as you need.
