Christmas is upon us and while there are a few deals you can still get by Christmas, there's another option, which is a tad less personal, but just as effective. We're talking about gift card deals — the perfect last-minute gift. 

A gift card to the right store will let your loved one pick out the gift they want and it'll take away the stress and anxiety of buying the wrong gift at the last minute. Sure, it's not the most personal holiday gift, but they're very practical. Best of all, you can send them via e-mail without having to worry about expedited shipping or having to visit a store. And in most cases, you can even control what time the gift card is delivered.
