Gift that suits every Occasion! 2

It’s party time!!! Time to meet our near and dear, shop for new party wear, accessories and prepare ourselves to enjoy to the fullest. Wait a minute, did we forget something?? Oh yes, it’s time to buy gifts too. Here comes the most important question. Do we know what the host might like? How often do we know the host’s likes and dislikes, interests?

Here comes a boon for us – “The gift card”.

A gift card is a prepaid card which we can top-up with cash and just handover the card to the person u want to gift. This saves our time and effort on choosing what and where to buy and the receiver is free to spend the money on whatever he/she likes which seems to be a win-win situation J

Most of the retail stores, e-commerce sites, top brands and banks provide an option to purchase gift cards.

Here are a few top e-commerce sites which provide gift cards:

Amazon

Flipkart

The receiver can use this card to buy products on the specific e-commerce site. Generally these cards have a validity for a year and you can do multiple transactions with the gift card amount. If the product you purchase is costlier than the amount in the gift card, you can pay the remaining amount using any bank card / other payment method.

Similarly, many banks do provide the gift cards. These cards from banks provide the receiver with the flexibility to swipe these cards in multiple places and multiple transactions till the validity expires. But they do charge some amount for the card, ranging from 200 to 500.

That is it for now. Enjoy Gifting!!!

    Hey, good post Swaroopa!

    Most of the wedding gifts to friends these days end up being ecommerce gift cards – they are super easy to create and give out, and also we know that they will be put to use effectively, with a large number of household goods also being available on Amazon and Flipkart.

    Looking forward to your future posts.
