The Christmas countdown has begun. Procrastinators should start freaking out now!  Don’t fret, there’s still hope, even with time running short.  Gift Cards are a great gift for those hard-to-shop-for people.  American Express gift cards are a great alternative to gift certificates.  They can be used wherever American Express cards are accepted.  Your loved ones, friends, co-workers, and business partners can use the gift card to buy whatever they need or want.  The AmEx gift cards also have many festive card images to choose from.

Don’t wait too long, if you need the gift cards before Christmas you’ll have to order them by December 21st. You can still get Express 2nd Day shipping for the same cost as standard shipping.

Here is a wrapping tip for your gift card; try adding a heavy or a loud item to the box making it feel heavier or sound noisy so your loved one will wonder “What could it be!?”
