Oh no, it is gift giving time, and you don’t know what to give her. Besides that, you hate to shop, the stores are crowded, not to mention finding the time. Just the same you want her to be delighted with her gift.
You may be able to find the perfect Christmas gift for the woman (or women…don’t forget Mom) in your life. Christmas gift cards are very good gifts. They always fit, they may be purchased at her favorite shop or online. You may even be able to find a Christmas gift card for her at your favorite shop.
There are a few rules however for Christmas gift cards for women. The card must be for something that she enjoys, would not purchase for herself or for something that she has always wanted to try but didn’t want to spend the money for it herself. That is a wonderful gift for any woman.
I have attached links for a few cards that you may purchase online:
Starbucks is one gift card that almost any woman would love to receive. Their coffee is outstanding; they have many wonderful teas, hot chocolate and so many more delicious beverages. Starbucks is good all year round. The Christmas gift card could even be used to purchase a tea pot, coffee or coffee making accessories, cups, travel mugs or even a breakfast on the go!
Michael’s has gift cards for the woman who is creative. Their Christmas gift card could offer the perfect gift for the woman who would like to decorate, find the perfect basket, needs a Christmas decoration in a hurry, loves crafting, likes to scrapbook or likes to do needlework, crocheting or knitting. Almost every woman would be able to find something they enjoy at Michael’s.
The American Express Gift Card may be used like cash at so many stores and shops. By giving this gift for a Christmas gift you would allow her to shop wherever she would like. The American Express Gift card may be personalized; what a unique idea. That would show her that you put a little extra thought into the gift card.
Other gift card suggestions are:
Purchase a Christmas gift card to a book store such as Barnes & Noble or B. Dalton; or an online book store like Amazon.com. These book stores all offer more than books, there are CDs, DVDs, games, journals, reading accessories, and so much more.
If you think you would like to give her something sweet, then you may want to consider a Christmas gift card for Godiva chocolates. Ummmmmm. A Christmas gift card for outstanding chocolates may be the gift that she would never purchase for herself; and, there is a slight chance that she may share!
If you know the shop or department store that she likes to shop at, then you cannot fail if you give her a Christmas gift card for her favorite store. She may be delighted to shop with a gift card for something personal; you may offer to accompany her, or allow her to shop unattended if she would like some time for personal shopping. By allowing her to shop with a gift card you know she will find the correct size, color and style she likes.
When giving any of these Christmas gift ideas, do make the gift card special by making sure that the issuing shop has a special Christmas gift card cover. If the store does not supply a special Christmas presentation sleeve or box for the card, then, tuck the card into a small gift box, a special Christmas card or something she would appreciate such as a cup or small box of candy.
Christmas gift cards may make a memorable gift.
