Christmas is 4 days away and the malls are crazy, parking lots are full, credit card machines are overloaded….and shoot…you forgot gifts for a couple of people!!! If you are like me, you don’t want to get near any type of retail outlet until after Christmas. I like to spend the next couple of days preparing dishes for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas brunch..the LAST thing I want to do is fight the crowds!! Or you might not have time to drop a gift off before Christmas….ahhh!
Here’s the solution….some retailers offer e-gift cards…you can purchase a gift card online, often personalized and with a design of your choice and the “gift card” is emailed to the recipient when you schedule it to be! Seriously brilliant!
Here are a few of our fave e-tailers offering e-cards….
- Tory Burch
- J Crew
- Victoria’s Secret
- Crate and Barrel
- Best Buy
A couple of things to look for in the terms and conditions…some e-cards are only good for online purchases and some are good for online and in-store purchases. Also, some sites give you the option to print out a gift certificate…perfect for popping into a Christmas card!
Your friends and family won’t sniff a bit at receiving an e-card…they can take advantage of after Christmas sales! It’s a win-win for everyone!
