I’m not sure how exactly it happened, but it seems we are already in the second week of December. That would mean that Christmas is coming up in no time! If I give it too much thought I’ll be in full panic mode. I usually have pretty much all of my Christmas shopping done by now, but I’m sad to say this year it just didn’t happen. Life just gets busy, you know? Besides my usual holiday shopping, baking, etc., I also have a Bat Mitzvah to attend and will have 6 extra guests in my house for 10 days or so.
I’m still sorting out my lists and trying to come up with gift ideas for a few people, but if I don’t figure it out soon, I’m heading over to Snapgifts.com and taking care of them all in one swoop. Did I mention that some of those gifts have to be mailed halfway across the country? I have friends and relatives in Oregon, Utah, Louisiana, and Alabama that I still need to buy for. Fortunately, some of them are coming here to visit but the rest will have to be shipped.
Snapgifts.com is a website where you can buy gift cards and send them directly to your family and friends. They carry both local (only in select markets, but will be expanding soon) and national brands to suit nearly anyone on your shopping list. You can purchase either traditional plastic gift cards or an e-Gift Card that is sent directly to the recipient’s e-mail to be printed out.
If you still can’t decide what to get that special someone on your list, you can let them do the deciding for you by sending them a Snapcard. Snapcards are e-mailed directly to the recipient, along with your own personal message, and can be redeemed for any of the 600+ gift cards on Snapgifts.com. It’s almost too easy!
So that I could try the entire purchasing process out, Snapgifts offered me a $25 gift card. I redeemed my code tonight for a local restaurant that my family likes to eat at and it was so simple. I just clicked on the card I wanted, selected the amount, and then filled in my information. When I checked my e-mail, I already had notification that the gift card was purchased.
I’m anxious to see what other cities are added for local gift card purchases. I never know for sure what stores are available when I buy gift cards for out of town friends and Snapgifts solves that problem. I will definitely be using Snapgifts in the future!
If you still have gifts to buy, I highly recommend checking out Snapgifts.com. For the entire month of December, they are offering free shipping on all gift cards! Just enter the code “freeshipping” when you check out!
