Are you searching for the perfect present for friends, family, and co-workers? Take the stress out of the holiday season, and head to your nearest Basta Pasta for a bundle of gift cards!
Won’t Go To Waste
Contrary to the rhetoric of all the nay-sayers, the truth is that gift cards are actually less likely to go to waste than other presents. Yes, there is a large number of gift cards that go unused in this country each year (as much as $2 billion worth), but even more gifts are returned or exchanged each season (as much as $50 billion worth). Gift cards are also increasingly easy to use and keep track of. There are apps that let you upload your gift card information and store it on your phone, and most gift cards give you the option to check the balance without heading into the store.
Gone are the days when the gift certificate were meant solely for the mall downtown. Almost every store out there offers a gift card now, yes, including restaurants. And when it comes to gift giving, remember that a gift certificate to a restaurant is more than just a thing – it is the experience of going out and enjoying delicious food with people they care about.
No More Overthinking
For many people, part of the fun of gift-giving is thinking of the greatest gift to surprise someone. But for others, this guessing game is super stressful. Gift cards are actually the perfect option because everyone loves a free meal!
Gift cards are a great budgeting tool for your gift recipient. Many people don’t have room in their budgets for the occasional night out, so giving a restaurant gift card is a great way to treat them to a nice surprise that they might not be able to afford.
If you find yourself shopping for gifts last minute, don’t beat yourself up. Gift cards got the reputation of being “lazy” because they’re quick and easy, and that’s not a bad thing. Give yourself a break.
