If you are having a hard time finding the perfect gift for someone, consider purchasing them a gift card instead. A gift card to the recipient’s favorite restaurant or spa would be greatly appreciated as a way to treat themselves after the stress of the holiday season. If you’re not sure of their favorite store or restaurant, American Express, Visa and MasterCard prepaid cards are a great gift idea. The recipient can treat themselves wherever they like.
