18 Gift Card Ideas for Everyone in 2020

best gift card ideas to give 2020

khadija horton

Somewhere along the line, gift certificates earned a reputation—one they absolutely do not deserve, IMHO—for being lame gifts. I mean, think about it! If you had a choice between getting a weird present that you’ll inevitably regift or a money voucher to all your favorite places, you’d choose the money every time, right?
