Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies: Gift Cards
This one almost writes itself. With Hanukkah in full swing and Christmas just around the corner I know some of you may be wondering what to get that food obsessed relative. The problem is that you are not obsessed with food so you don’t know what they might want.
Well I have a solution that will help you out with that foodie and anyone else on your gift list that is hard to buy for – gift cards. Some complain that gift cards are impersonal but I believe they can be some of the most personal gifts you can give. When someone gives me a gift card it is like saying, “I really want to give you exactly what you want but I don’t know what that is so here go get it; it’s on me.” That’s cool.
I order my gift cards from eBillme.com because they have a great assortment of shops and, admittedly because I have a friend who works for them who turned me on to how neat a service they have. They have a dozen vendors to choose from and you can pay for everything at the same site. Three of those shops are perfect for your freaky food obsessed friend – Amazon, JC Penny’s and the most obvious, Omaha Steaks. Amazon and Penny’s have all kinds of cooking equipment, appliances and toys to choose from while Omaha Steaks has, well steaks.
And while you are there you can get cards for those other hard-to-shop-for folks on your list because they also have cards for Zappos, Tigerdirect, Dell, Circuit city, Champs and Foot Locker. These email gift cards never expire and can be redeemed for millions of products. And best of all you can get cash back when you buy hunting, fishing & camping gear as well as clothing, computers, books & home improvement products!
