In 2019, Intuit’s MintLife surveyed Americans to determine exactly what people hope to receive for Christmas. The results were quite interesting!
According to Mint, 61% of Americans would rather receive cash or a gift card than a traditional gift during the holidays. Few of these people stand up and say that to the people who buy them, because… it sounds selfish, even though it’s not.
Last year we realized that our apartment had reached critical mass. There was no more room for “things” so we politely asked for Christmas gift cards as they wouldn’t take up much space and could be used for things we actually needed around the house.
Of course, this conversation was with our parents, which made it a little awkward because it’s super cute that they always want to buy their adult children gifts on Christmas when they don’t need them. Fortunately, it was well received. We ended up receiving a small purse the perfect size for concerts and sporting events, filled with gift cards.
Trust us when we say many of the people you shop for feel the same way. They would love this little gift that they could put in their purse and use for something they really want or need. You just have to make sure you pick the right one, so we’ve done a little homework for you.
After polling our listeners, we found out that these are the 15 most requested gift cards in Treasure Valley this holiday season!
