If a gift card sounds a bit taboo–this is the Holiday of Love, after all–you may be wondering how it could possibly be a good idea. Well, a gift card can transform itself into anything the receiver wants it to be…that’s the beauty of it. So when the giftee finally spends it on the hotel deposit, face mask, Nintendo Switch controller, sneakers, gel manicure or whatever else they may be eyeing, they’ll be feeling gratitude all the way. For example, when chatty Kathy brings up Bae’s new gold chain or upcoming weekend getaway in the break room, they’ll happily say “Thanks, my boo-thang got it for me, aren’t they just the best?!”

What are eGift cards?

Instead of having to go to the store to purchase generic prepaid gift cards, eGift cards allow you to do everything online (including card personalization). Plus, since you’re sending it over it the internet, you won’t need to pay for postage either–all you need is a valid email address.

The only difference between a physical gift card and an eGift card is plastic. Prepaid gift cards can be used anywhere, whereas eGift cards can only be used online. Which isn’t a problem for most people, but GiftCards.com knows that everyone has a preferred method of shopping so they offer physical gift cards, too!

Choose how much you want to load it with, and then comes the fun part: customizing the gift! Choose to personalize the card with a cute photo or choose from one of the unique pre-designed themes, add a note and then it’s off to shipping. It’s really that simple!
