Christmas Gift Certificates: The Ultimate Solution
Let’s face it: it’s happened to us all. We are presented with a beautifully wrapped gift during the holiday season, and it is obvious that the person who chose our special gift has put a lot of time and thought into purchasing just the right item. The longer we look at the gift, the more our excitement grows. Our imagination begins to run wild with thoughts of what might be inside this festively wrapped package. We pick it up to judge the weight. We feel the gift box to determine if the contents are soft or sturdy. Sometimes we even shake the gift just a little bit to see if anything moves. We try to contain our excitement as our fingers clumsily pluck away at the paper that disguises the present inside. As we gently remove the packaging…. kerplunk, Suddenly, our hearts simply sink.
The gift inside is not at all what we would have imagined. While we try desperately to conceal our disappointment, offering cheerful words of gratitude to the generous individual who took the time to select something we are certain they thought we would love, thoughts like “what were they thinking” invade our minds. Maybe the gift is the wrong size; after all Aunt Jane couldn’t have realized that we had gained a few extra pounds over the last year. Maybe we already have one or two just like it at home- doesn’t everybody? Maybe it’s simply something that we will never have a need or desire for- okay, no problem. Don’t we all have a hidden storage area where we keep all of the gifts like this from Christmases past? Maybe the gift is just completely hideous! It happens. The important thing to remember, is that we can keep this experience from happening to our friends, family members and loved ones this holiday season when we choose to purchase Christmas gift certificates instead.
Christmas gift certificates are nothing like they used to be. In the old days, gift certificates were typically a very impersonal gift that simply stated “I either didn’t have time to shop or I had absolutely no idea what to get you this Christmas, but here- go buy something”.
