Gift cards are the ultimate present for people who are hard to buy for. Maybe your intended recipient is someone who “has everything.” Perhaps, you have an upcoming workplace gift exchange, or maybe you’re buying for a neighbor or teacher and you don’t know the person well enough to be confident about what they like. These are all times when gift cards make the ideal gift. They’re some of the most customizable gifts out there, allowing you to choose the store and the dollar amount.
When we think of gift cards, we might think of obvious retailers such as Target, Amazon, or Walmart. Or we might rattle off a list of popular restaurants from McDonald’s (budget friendly) to Starbucks to Red Lobster or P.F. Chang’s (on the pricier side). We might even think about practical gift cards to grocery stores such as Aldi.
If you’re buying gift cards for people, especially if you’re looking to give a smaller gift of, say, $5 to $25, don’t overlook the value of gift cards from dollar stores. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, a simple gift card to Dollar Tree can offer a recipient an opportunity to score a lot of small items including snacks, toiletries, greeting cards, or party supplies.
Dollar Tree sells gift cards in a variety of designs, and Dollar Tree gift cards are available in any value $5 and up.
