Did you know gift cards can help people achieve their New Year’s resolutions? Giving a gift card to your New Year’s host is a kind gesture that can go a long way to helping them start 2013 off on the right foot. Not only can they provide an incentive to make healthy decisions, they can help your recipient save up for that trip they’ve wanted to take or de-stress at a spa. Gift cards can help with the most popular New Year’s Goals and many others.
Weight Loss and Fitness Goals
Giving a grocery gift card instead of a restaurant card is a great way to motivate your recipient to cook rather than eating out. According to the Orlando Sentinel
, eating out once a week translates to roughly two extra pounds a year for the average consumer. If your recipient is like me and their kitchen equipment is sorely lacking, a Cooking.com gift card is the perfect way to make cooking less of a hassle. If your recipient has fitness goals, giving a gift card to a sporting goods store can show support if you don’t live close enough to go with them to the gym.
Get a Better Education
Going back to school can be expensive. A Target® Gift Card is one way to help your recipient save on school supplies.
Has your recipient been planning a trip, but hasn’t been able to afford it? Get everyone in the family to pitch in for a cruise or Travelocity Gift Card. Gas cards, hotel cards, or open-loop gift cards
are a less expensive way to contribute to a trip.
Gift cards can help your recipient manage stress in several ways.
Getting organized and removing clutter can be a stress reliever. A gift card allows your recipient to choose the right size bins and shelves for the spaces that need organizing.
Few things are as relaxing as a day at the spa. The Huffington Post listed nine benefits of getting a massage including managing anxiety, easing pain, and improving sleep. Our SpaFinder eGift Card is accepted at 5,000 spas worldwide and can be sent directly to your recipient’s e-mail or phone via SMS text message.
Give an incentive to try a new workout DVD or help your recipient buy equipment for at home when they can’t make it to the gym.
