10 Reasons Gift Cards Are The Most Underrated Gifts Ever

Once I grew out of the “getting toys for the holidays” phase, all I ever (and still) ask for is gift cards. Why? Well for starters, I’m terrible at making decisions (new shoes or new bag?!). But as much as I love my family, it’s just easier to tell them “Shopbop gift card please!”. Not that I don’t trust them to buy something I like, but gift cards really do make the whole holiday shopping process painless. The givers don’t have to freak out about buying something before it sells out AND they can get gift cards as late as December 24th. The receivers get to choose exactly how they want to spend their card, and that’s the best gift anyone can get. #EveryoneWins.

But there’s so many more reasons you may not know for why gift cards are the most underrated gift ever. You can sell ’em, trade ’em in for cash or other gift cards and for those of you who think they are impersonal, well, there’s plenty of ways to get creative with the most-wanted holiday gift (yep, it’s a fact). So click the slideshow to find out why you should be giving and asking for gift cards this holiday season.

And don’t forget to check out: what’s still in stock from our gift guides, how to kill it at an ugly Christmas sweater party and the worst holiday gifts ever
