The gift card has often been a symbol of a thoughtless gift. However, many people love to receive gift cards as presents. I, a woman, personally love to receive gift cards for Christmas gifts. No matter how small the denomination, a gift card is always going to please a female recipient. Here are some of the best ways to make a gift card personal.
I do not know a single woman who does not enjoy a day at the spa. Whether is be a massage, pedicure or hot salt scrub, the spa gift card brings the gift of relaxation. After I had my first baby, it was wonderful to be given a gift certificate to the local spa. I had a massage with orange body butter which was heavenly. If a spa gift card is not affordable, another option is to get a gift card to a manicure/pedicure salon. The services here are usually more affordable but will still be ultra pampering. Just make sure the salon is clean and sterilizes all of its tools. Finally, this gift card would be extra special if wrapped and topped with a cute nail file or red nail polish.
Women love to talk and they love coffee. Put the two together and I am one happy lady. There are so many options for coffee gift cards. Starbucks are on every corner in mostmetropolitan and suburb areas. Even better are the local, privately owned coffee shops. And do not think that coffee shops are only for coffee drinkers. During Christmas time, there is nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa or apple cider. To make the gift more personal, slide the gift card into a coffee mug for that special touch.
Yes, I hate to sound stereotypical, but most women like to shop. It is so hard to shop for clothing and accessories for females, so why not give them the gift of choice. There are general mall gift cards or gift cards to particular boutiques. Find out what your lady recipient likes and give her a shopping spree. Victoria’s secret is one of my favorites.
I-Tunes Gift cards
This gift card is pretty universal to men and women alike. I like itunes primarily for putting tunes on my Ipod for workouts or just mellowing out. To make this gift card more feminine, put it in a silky bag or pair it with a some rhinestone ear buds.
Visa Gift Cards
Not sure what to get. Then the Visa Gift card is a great option. I love receiving these because I can get whatever I what, whenever I want. These are easy gifts because you can pick them up in person or online and they are excepted virtually everywhere.
Gift Card to Restaurant
Restaurant gift cards mean a night off from cooking and doing dishes. This is a wonderful gift card idea. It is nice to get a person a gift card to their favorite restaurant or nice to get one to that new hot spot. Either way, make sure to put the gift card in a nice Christmas card and never just hand the person the gift card. Also, make sure to get a high enough increment to cover the lady and a guest. If you pick the right restaurant, that guest might be you.
