I have to admit that I often just spend without noticing the bank book. I am one of those “put on the credit card and pay off next month” people. 99% of the time it works and with our credit card point system, I generally make money in the process. But the months it doesn’t work so nicely are around the Nov-January when the budget blows up well past what I earn to what I have to spend.
Enter Gift Cards
I have talked about gift cards a lot on MomDot, and generally when I run a contest its for a gift card. I realize the value of them as a gift and as a recipient. Nothing is easier than giving someone a gift that is perfect. Think about it..they get to pick what they want and shop where you send them.
Now there are millions of stores and millions of websites, but the best place you can send someone a gift card online hands down is Amazon. With almost every product imaginable, and competing companies for the best price, whomever you are buying for this season will be able to choose whatever their heart desires!
The beauty of a gift card for your budget is you can pick the exact amount you want to spend on each person. Do you need $25 for your cousin? $100 for mom? No worries about taxes or spending too little or too much. And Amazon gift cards have NO FEES.
Personalizing your Gift Cards
Giving a gift card can seem impersonal in a lot of ways. No one wants to stand there and say, uh, i didn’t know what to give you so I’m letting you pick it out yourself. HA! But you can get over that initial awkwardness by dressing up your Amazon gift card code with a FREE E-Card from Blue Mountain.
Now you can turn that perfect gift card gift into a special gift card gift!
Once you have your card picked out, you just hit here:
Then a new page comes up where you can personalize the email, purchase your card and away it goes all prettified for the holidays!
Head over to Blue Mountain to see all the varieties of Amazon Ecards you can send, they do offer more than just Holiday!
