Gift cards – the ideal gift that guarantees it will be used and not be regifted, right?! Ha! Sometimes though, picking out a gift card can be confusing – you want that person to like where you are telling them to retrieve their gift and give them a card that’s a little more glamorous than one they can pay their bills with.
Happy Cards is the versatile gift card it isn’t a credit gift card or a gift card to one location – Happy Cards are themed gift cards that allow the gift card recipient to use the gift card balance at several stores. You can find Happy Cards at neighborhood grocery stores – Safeway, Kroger, Albertsons, and Giant Eagle, so the next time you’re at the store, grab a few and cross off your grocery and Christmas list at the same time.
You can pick a Happy Card based on theme – like Happy Student, Happy Baby, Happy Lady, Happy Guy, Happy Bites, Happy Beauty, Happy Her, the list goes on. Each themed card has a bundle of stores the gift card can be used.
It makes it a bit more fun, and encourages the recipient to check out other places they might not, but also allows them to spend a little here, and a little there.
I was at Safeway late at night getting last minute food items checking out at the cashier and I looked across the store and saw a woman at the gift card area with a stack of gift cards in hand. She had to have had at least 20 in hand and was looking around trying to decide what to grab next. I was thinking how she would be less confused if she got a Happy Card – and it would mean the recipient could use the card in several locations.
Happy Cards let me choose a gift card for myself to try. I chose the Happy Lady card – it can be used at Lord & Taylor, Sephora, Bed Bath & Beyond, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Panera Bread, Cheesecake Factory, and Spafinder.
I was just at Sephora weeks earlier buying Christmas gifts for my girlfriends and I saw some goodies I really wanted myself so I went back to indulge, and after, treat myself and my Instagram husband to a delicious lunch at Panera Bread! I also need new makeup organizers from Bed Bath & Beyond and I also love Cheesecake Factory and they are all within a 1 mile radius of where I live.
I know you can easily give someone a gift card that’s like a credit card but sometimes a gift card to a location like a restaurant or beauty store says – TREAT YOSELF!
A Happy Card encourages the recipient to have fun and have a meal, buy some makeup, or get a massage instead of paying a bill. When you pick a gift card that has multiple options for redemption, now that’s a winning gift that also says, have an entire day on me, meal and shopping, if you wish.
Pick up a Happy Card the next time you need to give a gift – and remember if you have any last minute gifts you need to buy for, just go to the gift card area and look for it, done! It’s personal and still flexible. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
That was quite a day all on a gift card! So many fun places to stop – and of course, I’m going to give away a Happy Lady card from Happy Cards to a lucky reader.
Give it away or use it yourself because you definitely deserve a treat making it through the holidays and being a generous gift giver yourself!
