I recently read that gift cards were now the #1 requested gift for the holiday season.
Makes sense -- with gift cards you don't worry about having to find the perfect size.
You also put a little time into the gift so it's not quite as impersonal as just giving cash.
Here's another plus: many businesses are giving the buyers a little perk when you buy a gift card this season.
Barnes and Noble, Panda Express, Cheesecake Factory, Denny's, and a whole slew of others are offering these perks.
Check out a full list of locations and offer details at the BARGAIN BABE website.
