Last minute gift guide: Gift cards

By Leigh D. Stark | 10:46 pm 22/12/2010

When there’s no time left for browsing the shops, or you just completely out of ideas, gift cards make the perfect last minute present.

iTunes cards

Apple’s cards can be used to buy music, movies, apps, and more, with vouchers starting from as little as $20 and going up to $100. What’s more, they’re available at everywhere – even petrol stations, supermarkets. They can also be purchased from the iTunes online store and sent via email. You don’t even have to leave the house!

Game cards (Nintendo, Xbox Live, Sony PSN)

Every major console now has a gaming network where you can purchase add-ons for games, or even full games with points. Whether the person you’re buying for plays hardcore first-person shooters or dabbles in the music experiences, gaming points cards can be used to buy extra content, full games, and even rent movies off of gaming networks.

Retailer gift cards

It’s about as “last resort” as you can get. Find a gift card for places like Dick Smith, JB HiFi, and many others, charge it with 30 bucks or more, and slap the person’s name on it. You don’t even need to wrap it: just stick it in an envelope and you’re done.
