Are Gift Cards the Easy Way Out?

People have mixed feeling about gift cards when it comes to giving them as a gift. Are gift cards the easy way out instead of shopping about 5 different stores looking for that “perfect” gift? Personally, I love gifts cards. There has been too many holidays where you open a present and there is a sweater that you wouldn’t even wear in the dark. Ugh!

Gift cards have come a long way, they used to be paper gift certificates then they moved to the credit card looking gift cards and now a mobile gift card!

While at Target the other day I happen to notice a large poster display that had “mobile” gift cards. All you have to do is choose the gift card design you want, scan the QR Code, choose the amount that you would like to give and then just hit send! The person will then receive it as an email or a text message.  Now this is a quick way to do your shopping for sure!
