Presents are my favorite part of birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries. That's right. I said it! I love presents! But I love giving them too. Finding the perfect gift for that someone special and seeing that spark of happiness in their eyes as they open it is a serious close second to opening a gift for myself.
Meticulously wrapped in pretty paper with ribbon and a huge bow. The beautiful presentation has given way to high hopes and great expectations. It's torn open in anticipation of the surprise inside. Are they going to love it? Is it the right size and color? Will it eventually be re gifted?
Let go of all that unnecessary stress and go with a gift card next time. That's right. I said it! A gift card is THE perfect gift for anyone...you just can't go wrong.
Now, I know what you're thinking..."a boring gift card"..."how impersonal"..."where's the thought?"..."where's the presentation?".
Well, looky here:
