Gift Cards - Good vs. Bad

For years, there’s been a debate over whether gift cards gift cards are a good gift or a bad gift for the holidays or other times. The main argument for them being a “bad gift” has been the fact that gift cards don’t have that personal touch. I think gift cards can actually be a great gift that is very thoughtful.

Do not worry, the recipient of the gift card will most likely be thankful that they can treat themselves to an experience or something that they don’t have to pay for. And in a year with so many supply chain shortages when it’s difficult to get an actual item, a gift card is a perfect gift!

Here are a few other reasons why gift cards are a great gift. Did you know that in 2019, it was reported that gift cards were the most requested gift! Restaurant gift cards were the most requested, followed by Visa/MasterCard and American Express, with department stores following right behind.

Giving gift cards doesn’t have to mean you’re giving something that’s not thoughtful. Giving a gift card to a restaurant that you both enjoyed brings back memories of the times you shared together!
