Gift card sales may be lower than last year overall, but they remain an easy and popular option for last-minute gift buyers.
"With projected holiday sales of gift cards in 2008 reaching nearly $25 billion, the cards are hot commodities these days. Retailers of all shapes and sizes are now selling gift cards, and not only their own: shoppers can get gift cards from department store, specialty apparel, restaurants, electronic stores and home improvement stores at local drug stores or supermarkets," says
I've always been a big fan of gift cards, so I suppose I'm ahead of the pack. Although I like cold, hard cash — in an envelope, with or without a holiday card — even more. Call me sentimental.
