Traditionally, giving a gift card or cash as a holiday gift gets a bad rap, but it doesn’t have to be a last-minute gift that feels like you never thought of it. . Although social distancing limits have eased a bit this year, many of us will still be celebrating the holidays virtually with our loved ones, which means giving e-gifts on the Internet is more acceptable than ever. Plus, in real life, gift cards allow the recipient in question to get what they want, so you don’t have to make assumptions trying to figure it out. However, sending gift cards through the mail is risky. Unfortunately, they are often stolen along the way.

Listen, I admit it – I’ve definitely been one to rush to the nearest grocery store to pick out a last minute (and super generic) gift card on my way to exchanging Christmas gifts with my family in the past (I mean, I highly doubt my grandma would want a gift card to Home Depot, but hey, that’s all that was left) but now , it’s so easy to buy and send thoughtful e-cards online from stores and services that the recipient in question will actually love – and it takes even less time than sprinting to CVS around the block and checking out IRL. Scroll below to find some of the best last-minute e-gift cards you can buy and send online without looking like a huge procrastinator.
