Oh the merry season! A time to gather (now that we finally can again!), spend quality moments with family and friends, and share gifts as a testament of love. Gift giving isn’t simply an exchange of goods. It’s an opportunity to show others that we care and that we’ve put thought into making them happy. But for some, it can be stressful. Finding the perfect present can seem like a daunting task. Luckily, gift cards are ideal for everyone, for several reasons. Here’s why!

They Are Versatile

By now, just about every retailer has a gift card. FundScrip offers hundreds of them, making it simple to find exactly what you’re looking for. Plus, there are different types such as traditional plastic cards, some of which are reloadable, and e-gift cards, which are becoming more and more popular. They can be mailed, e-mailed, etc., making them perfect for those with family across the country. You can also select from various denominations, according to your budget. Now that’s convenient!

They Can Be Bundled

You can have SO MUCH FUN with gift cards. For example, you could buy your loved ones a wallet and fill it with gift cards—this is especially popular with teenagers and young adults. Or you could wrap a bunch of them and slip them in everyone’s stocking. Adding them to gift boxes with other types of presents is also common. You could develop a theme, like self-care, and combine relevant items along with health and beauty cards (which includes spa experiences). The sky is the limit, really!

They’re Thoughtful and Help You Avoid Headaches

Gift cards show you care, as they allow you to select the perfect retailers without having to deal with any issues like wrong size/colour, etc. The recipient will see that you gave it kind consideration, all while leaving space for their individual preferences. How thoughtful!

They Keep on Giving

Another great advantage is that they prolong the experience of receiving a gift. Not only is the recipient happy initially, but they also carry that feeling with them as they shop. Plus, they can strategically purchase sale items, which adds an extra layer.

They Are Useful

Instead of giving people unwanted items, let them treat themselves to something they truly enjoy. We’ve all had that happen and although we appreciate the intent, it’s still a hassle to keep a useless gift to be polite or having to return it. Avoid that altogether with gift cards!

Now is the fun part! Make a list of your loved ones, peruse FundScrip’s extensive catalogue of retailers, and select the perfect present for each person. Not only will you make others happy, but you’ll also support a fundraiser at the same time! Don’t yet have a group? Get started today!
