A lot of my family have been asking me that dreaded question….what do they get the kids for Christmas. Well, honestly how about cold hard cash? I’m not kidding! Well don’t really send cash, but those prepaid credit cards would be perfect.
Gift cards are fine and dandy, but when a kid like Morgan, who is good with money wants to shop for the best deals around, they can be kind of hindering. Also, she wants a few big ticket items. If all her gift cards are for different stores that doesn’t help her get what she wants because she can’t combine them. The prepaid credit cards can be spent anywhere and on anything. That way if she got a few prepaid credit cards she could combine them to make one big purchase.
Same thing for the little ones. No point in buying gifts and shipping them out here. That is a waste of money. If you really want to get the girls gifts, you can send the prepaid credit cards and I can go get stuff from you to put under the tree and save you the hassle of paying for and shipping it out.
For those insisting on getting J and I something, the prepaid credit cards can’t go wrong. We don’t really need anything, but if you are insisting…then one of those are great for us. It could be set aside for movie date nights or something fun like that. Maybe I can frame them to break in case of emergency!
I think this is what I will do for some of those hard to shop for people on my list. No guessing about where they want to shop, or what stores are near them. No wasting money on a gift that is not needed or liked.
