Every season is rife with its own set of festivities and occasions. But there is one occasion, you will agree, that has no specific season. It can occur at any time of the year – a housewarming party!
As it’s a predictable occasion, when we go over as guests, our gifts too tend to be just that – predictable. Wall clocks and dinnerware seem to be the staple presents for a new home, don’t they? But why not avoid giving the same gift as many others? Why not cut the cliché and seem more thoughtful? Your gifts don’t need to be commonplace. Your gifts don’t always have to provide immediate gratification. You are allowed to think different. You can give delightful gift cards.
A gift card, (also known as gift certificate, gift voucher or gift token) is a prepaid stored-value money card, usually issued to be used as an alternative to cash. It can be used for purchases within a particular store or related businesses. Why is it a better alternative? Scroll to know!
Cuts the Guesswork
“Will she like this gift? Will this gift annoy him? Does he already have too many of it? Is this gift appropriate for the event?”
Giving someone a present for any occasion can pose these questions in your mind. And more so, when you’re buying housewarming gifts, or a gift for colleagues and when the information about the person or event is scarce. Gift cards can hence cut the guesswork for you, you won’t have to spend time choosing a gift, and you won’t have to worry if they’ll like it or not. Because, of course they’ll get to choose!
Gives Freedom to the Recipient
People love freedom and control. And that includes over what they buy or want to buy. When you give someone a gift card, it gives them the freedom to purchase whatever they’d like, up to a certain price. They know their own house better, don’t they? And they can take their own sweet time to buy it, till the date the card is valid. They will not have to rush.
Is your last-minute saviour
We’ve all dealt with the last minute pressure of buying a gift, especially for an occasion like a house-warming party, where the present is considered generic – not necessarily for a particular individual. But instead of trying to dig through the picked-over aisles at your local mall for last-minute gifts, go easy on yourself.
Give the new homeowner a gift card. You can be sure your gift will be put to good use. Moreover, the cost of sending gift cards is a lot less than the cost of mailing packages.
Now, how do you easily get a suitable Gift Card, while sitting where you are, without going out of your house? You can send e-cards that will be delivered to the recipient on a date you choose, via e-mail. Or you can send printed cards that will be delivered to the recipient in 3-7 working days(via Enhanced Shipping).
Gift cards are like any other gifts you give, so you should think about the person/family you are giving the cards to. They are always a safer option, brimming with possibility, and the guarantee that receivers will end up with something useful – or something they love.
