Let’s face it, even the best gift cards have been met with fake smiles and sing-songy “Oooooh, you shouldn’t have” reactions. But amidst a holiday season ripe with delivery delays and virtual holiday gatherings, gift cards are a no-fail way to ensure your loved ones know you’re thinking about them (and definitely haven’t forgotten to buy them a present).
Whether it’s a big box retailer they miss perusing the aisles of or a boutique brand they’ve been DM-ing you about on Instagram, virtually every company is rolling out email gift card options this year—and they all come with the added bonus of not exposing your friends and family to the coronavirus. Plus, they’re a perfect vehicle for giving your hard-to-shop-for friend what they really want for Christmas: to be left alone to shop in peace. Ah, nothing like 2020 to bring us all together.
