Gift Card Ideas

Of all the tortures modern life inflicts on the human race- ridiculous rents, daily traffic snarls, Tony Abbott- gift card ideas seems a minor issue over which to lose sleep.

But if you’re lucky enough to have more than one friend or family member, the chore of procuring the ‘perfect’ birthday or christmas gift  crops up with alarming regularity. My in-laws are an eccentric bunch, and there’s an awful lot of them.

They generally walk a mildly batty and less travelled path through life, and knowing what to buy them and their large brood of offspring is about as simple as solving the crisis in the Middle East.

That’s why I’ve directed my partner to the Gift Card Planet website. This allows his brother, sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews to purchase whatever they please from literally thousands of different retailers, nationwide.

If their wish is to buy the necessary materials to build a spacecraft in which to travel to Mars, they may do so. If they would like to buy a bone from which to fashion a smoking pipe, they may also do so *possibly. Don’t quote me on that one*

Gift cards are traditionally held to be a less personal style of gift, but that view is changing as people look to reduce wasteful spending in their life and give gifts that will be of genuine value to the recipient.

These days, it’s also possible to design your own gift card, adding a very personal touch and rendering it so much more than just a piece of plastic.

Personally, I can’t think of anything I’d like better. In fact, I’m tempted to copy and paste this blog into a facebook status update, just to inform as many people as possible, none of whom could care less, what my gift preference is. I’d strongly suggest you do the same.
