I recently celebrated a birthday. Happy 25 (again!) to me! Of course my most favorite gifts are always the handmade cards created by my children. Those are always the best! My next favorite on the list though? Gift Cards.
Can we talk about gift cards please? Gift cards are the one gift you can buy that you don't have to worry about whether the recipient will be happy. Pick a favorite store and you can happily send your loved one off to shop knowing they will be able to buy exactly what their heart desires. When I am shopping for a young one a toy store or a book store gift card is almost always a pick. When shopping for an adult I tend to go the sensible route (I mean, who couldn't use a little extra to spend at the grocer in the form of Giant Eagle gift cards!?) with things they can use for the items they need. I am always known to throw in a gift card for a little bit of pampering to balance all that sensible out!
So, if you are looking for the perfect gift for me (or most anyone I know!) you can go the gift card route. Or a vacation......you could also send me on vacation (palm trees, little umbrellas in my drink....yes, please!).
