Gift cards used to have a negative stigma, deemed as impersonal and low-effort. That notion has changed over the past few years. Now, you can get a gift card or e-gift card just about anywhere, from their favorite local coffee shop to their go-to beauty site and tailored to their hobbies and interests. We love that gift cards allow the recipient to pick out exactly what they want.

You know how traditional gift cards work, but e-gift cards even allow you to choose the time that your lucky recipient gets notified of your gift via email. (This means you can shop well in advance or super last-minute and they'll never know.) Beyond the holidays, e-gift cards are perfect for any gifting occasion or just because. Think new job, new home, loss of a loved one or for faraway friends feeling a bit homesick. And while we always encourage shopping small, we also understand that there are some large retailers that family and friends may want to use to stock up on new homewares, pet supplies, apparel, tech and more. Ready to shop (and gift)? Browse our A-to-Z guide featuring our favorite spots to grab e-gift cards this season, from Airbnb to Zappos.
