If you are like me, Christmas comes faster and faster each year–no matter how early you start planning. This year I actually did pretty well because we did not travel for the holidays. However, I know that in years past, I have needed last-minute gifts sent to family members across the country.
Emailable gift certificates are a perfect way to show someone that you are thinking about them without breaking the bank. You could choose a store that you know that your recipient enjoys. For example, anyone who knows me knows that I would use a Sephora emailable gift certificate just about immediately. You can find emailable gift certificates for almost anything–books, food, makeup, etc.
If you don’t know exactly what your recipient likes, don’t be afraid to give them something more general, like an Amazon.com gift certificate. Those arrive almost immediately and can be used on thousands of different products. Or visit a store like GiftCertificates.com, Gifts.com, or MyChoiceGiftCards.com to send them a certificate that they can use to trade in for other gift certificates of their choice.
They say it is the thought that counts, and that is true. Whether you send a small token or a large gift card, your recipient will appreciate that you took the time.
