Recently when asking friends, family and colleagues about gift cards, I found quite the trend. I started to hear the same names over and over. From coffee to clothing, there is no shortage of gift cards to choose from. Here are my top picks of awesome cards to receive as gifts.
Have you ever heard of someone complaining about receiving a Starbucks gift card? I think not.
For over 40 years, Starbucks has been one of the leading companies providing coffee drinks to people worldwide. One year for Christmas, I received four Starbucks gift cards so I speak from experience when I say, you really can’t go wrong with this card.
It’s very rare that you hear of someone who does not have an iTunes account. This is a great gift card especially for your music and video loving children.
The world’s largest online retailer, Amazon started out as just an online book store. It has now branched into apparel, electronics, toys and even food. It’s usually one of the first sites I check out when searching for a particular item. They have great deals!
Fandango gift cards are quickly growing as a favorite gift card option. Fandango allows the movie lover in your life to purchase tickets in advance. Twilight and Hunger Games fans? Nomore sleeping on the sidewalk to see the latest installment of your fav movie.
The second largest discount retailer behind Walmart, Target is a favorite shopping destination of many Snomee lovers. Target sells more gift cards than any other retailer in the U.S. And a little tidbit about these gift cards? They are collectors items. Some of the first Target cards issued are now worth over $300 and that is with an “empty” gift card. Every year they introduce new Holiday cards including ones that light up and that are scented. One thing I really love about Target, aside from the prices, is the apparel selection. Top designers have created lines especially for Target that are not only affordable but LOOK great! Fashion on a budget!
I enjoy shopping at Banana Republic but I know people who LOVE shopping at Banana Republic. This Gap Inc. owned store features apparel, handbags, jewelry and shoes for men and women. Known for it’s luxury and reasonable prices, you won’t go wrong with this gift card.
I think half of my Facebook friend’s list is pregnant. Ok, maybe that’s stretching it JUST a little but I am almost certain we all know at least one person who has a little bun in the oven.
The best thing I received as a gift while pregnant were Babiesrus gift cards. They are great to have handy when you think of something you need for your sweet one......like DIAPERS and FORMULA.
Imagine your child’s eyes when they not only receive a fun Snomee but they also receive a giftcard to Disney. One great thing about these cards is the fact you can not only use them at the Disney store but you can also use them at Disney World, DisneyLand and even on Disney Cruiseline.
Department Store (Macy’s, Belk, Nordstrom etc)
You can never go wrong with a department store gift card. We all have our favorite department store to shop at. One awesome thing I love? Using the gift card around big holiday sale times. More bang for your buck!!
If all else fails and you don’t know which gift card to choose, go with your standard Visa or Mastercard gift cards. This can be used for anything your loved one desires. Gas, food, clothing or the latest video game......these cards are usually accepted anywhere a Visa or Mastercard credit card is accepted.
Of course there are thousands of gift cards.....so many to choose from. What was the best gift card you ever received?
