Gift Card Is The Only Logical Gift. Really?

Most people have received a gift they’ve disliked or found completely impractical at least once in their lives. And when they receive such a gift,  what usually happens to that gift? If it’s lucky, it might get regifted, otherwise, it will most likely get tossed aside or thrown in the trash. Yes it’s sad, but it’s the cold hard truth.

That’s the problem with buying gifts for people. It might not be as difficult buying a gift for someone who is super close to you because you can ask them what they would like directly. On the other hand, if you are browsing around for a gift for someone who you’re not really close to, it can be very confusing. You don’t know what their hobbies are, what they collect, what they would appreciate, or worst yet, what their dislikes. The last thing you want is to waste your money and time.


When you find yourself in a dilemma such as these, gift cards make the perfect gift. Why?

  • Because they are practical. You can literally go into any shop and/or online and purchase a gift card for someone. The recipient can then go into the shops and pick up something they will definitely love. Would that seem unthoughtful and less personal? Let’s think about it this way: isn’t it better to give the recipient something they can actually use or love instead of stressing out over what to buy which ultimately could end up deemed as useless?
  • You are giving the recipient the privilege to choose their own gift.
  • They are a great last minute gift idea as it’s quick and easy to purchase. You can be in and out with a gift in the palm of your hand within 5 minutes.

Gift cards as gifts just make sense altogether. Who wouldn’t want to purchase a gift that’s simple to buy. And who wouldn’t want to receive a gift that they will definitely love. So there you go, go out and make that purchase for your friends and family. Get gifts, get gift cards.


Reasons Gift Cards Make The Perfect Incentives!

Imagine giving away cash rewards with the recipient having not a lot of recollection of why and how they received it? Or worse, they spend it as petty money without fully indulging on the reward which was why it was given in the first place.

As a business owner, it’s fantastic when you are able to show your appreciation toward your employees. Implementing a gift card program as an employee reward will prove to be thoughtful and personal. Many times they are carefully selected rewards that are matched to the recipient’s interests and hobbies. This can be extremely successful as it aims to ward what the recipient wants instead of needs.

Employees receiving gift cards as rewards will also be able to make a deeper connection with the company. As gift cards have a much bigger impact as rewards than cash. Cash loses its memorability quickly as recipients tend to spend it on routine items, save it or even use it to pay bills. On the other hand, gift cards are often mentally grouped by recipients as “fun money” which is funds to use outside of the household budget.

Gift cards are one of the most practical gifts. Why? They are easy for both ends, the giver and recipient. Many individuals love receiving gift cards because it offers the freedom of choice. It allows the pickiest of people to choose and actually enjoy their gifts. Not only does receiving gift cards give a pleasant and memorable feeling for your employees, for a business owner such as yourself, it’s an easier approach to implementing an employee rewards program.
