Gift Cards Make Great Gifts Too – Tech Gift Thursday

With just a couple of shopping days left before Christmas, I hope you have found most of your gifts already and are ready for the holiday fun with your families. But if you still need an idea for that last minute gift, you can’t go wrong with a game if they have a console. But yeah, they can be expensive. So why not give them something they will use? A gift certificate!

It’s affordable and gives all year long, and better then some magazine subscriptions.Some people think that they can be impersonalbe and that it’s a cop out. But what if you really don’t know what they want? Just take a shot in the dark and hope for the best? It’s more like giving them the whole store.

Gamefly is a lot like what Netflix used to be, only that you can rent games and keep them as long as you like, with no late fees. You can even buy the games from them as well, all for one monthly fee. And the collection of games that you can choose from is pretty wide, even the latest releases like Batman: Arkham City, Legend of Zelda: Skyword Sword and Skyrim. And they do gift certificates on their website. So a die hard gamer would love this!

Then there is of course the electronic stores like BestBuy, Apple, WalMart and others. Those gift cards can go a long way with movies or just parts or accessories they may need for the electronics they have now. Of go towards a gift they have been secretly wanting and told no one. So don’t count out the simple gift card for your shopping list. They may be just the thing you’re looking for, for the hard to buy person.

Starting next Tuesday, we’ll be back to tech news and commentary. But in the mean time, I hop you and your family and friends, enjoy all the holiday season has to offer, and that your new year is filled with joy and fun, and is very prosperous.
