While gift cards may get a bad rep in terms of holiday shopping—they’re often seen as the go-to choice for those who hate giving presents or don’t know their recipients very well—they’re actually among the hottest gifts of 2020, according to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation (NRF). Plus, most retailers offer digital delivery via email for gift cards, so this is one thoughtful option that’ll definitely arrive in time for Christmas.
Regardless of what your giftee is into, you can save on all kinds of gift cards right now, spanning from home goods and dining to fashion and more. For example, you can get 20% off gift cards at Our Place—a.k.a., maker of the cult-favorite Always Pan ($145), which once had a 30,000-person waiting list. With values originally starting at $50 and available in denominations up to $200, you can get cards from as low as $40 when you add them to your cart, saving you between $10 to $40, depending on the amount you choose to purchase.
Shopping for someone who’s obsessed with crushing their fitness goals for 2021? An adidas gift card could be a terrific way to show your support and help them grab all the shoes, clothing and accessories they’ll need to go the distance—and feel great doing it. Through Thursday, December 31, you can get a $50 e-gift card from the company for $40, so you’ll save $10.
So don’t be afraid to stock up and grab a few for everyone that’s still left on your holiday shopping list—you’ll not only be giving someone you care about the chance to pick up something awesome for themselves, you’ll be saving money and ensuring it will get there in time for the holiday, too.
