It’s that time of year again. While this time of year might inspire festive music and general good tidings for some, it can also make people stressed out and tense: what should I buy for my loved ones? Is a gift card a good gift? We’re here to tell you that it is.
Here are 5 reasons why a gift card is a good gift for the holidays:
1. It saves time.
According to Consumer Reports, the average American spends about 42 hours buying, wrapping, and returning gifts for their friends and family every holiday season. After all, have you ever found yourself standing in a store, wondering: Will they like this? Is it the right size? Is it the right color? Will they even use it?
With a gift card, you eliminate all this wasted time wondering if you’ve picked out the right gift. With one quick stop in to your closest Providence Coal Fired Pizza, you can have your gift picked out and purchased in a matter of minutes.
2. It is actually a very thoughtful gift
The rise in popularity of giving gift cards demonstrates that it is not a cop-out. Many people worry that, if they give a gift card as a gift, they will seem like they don’t care and simply couldn’t be bothered to take the time to pick out a better gift. But a gift card can, in fact, be a very thoughtful, considerate gift.
For instance, do you know your loved one’s favorite restaurant? A lot of people will rarely go out and treat themselves to a nice meal; so, giving your loved one a gift card to their favorite restaurant is really giving them a fun night out to dinner that they can enjoy, guilt-free. And that is certainly not a cop-out.
3. It's a great gift for co-workers and/or your boss
Shopping for your loved ones is hard enough but then there is also the added stress of figuring out what to get your boss or co-workers. A gift card to Providence Coal Fired Pizza is completely appropriate and appreciated, and it certainly won't make you the butt of office jokes in 2019!
4. Your money won’t be wasted.
Think of how many gifts you have received over the years that, while well-intended, were simply not the right gift for you. Maybe it was clothing that didn’t fit, something that you didn’t like, or just some useless bauble that you didn’t really know what to do with.
When you give a gift card as gift, you can have confidence that your money will not have gone to waste, because you won’t have blindly guessed (and, possibly, failed) to pick something your loved one may like. Instead, you’ve given them the freedom to get something that they will definitely love - who doesn't love pizza?!?
