What Would Posses Me to Buy Online?

You may be wondering what an ole cowboy type is doing on here blabbering about gift cards! Well that is the question of the hour!

I have the toughest time finding gifts for my kids, wife, friends and so on. I have been doing some searching online to find alternatives to getting all fancied up and driving into town to find that perfect gift!

I have come up with a few advantages to this online shopping deal! I am beginning to like this! These include the following:

  • No traffic to deal with. (Only the internet traffic jams on a Friday night)
  • No long lines to hang-out in as I peruse the most recent issue of the Nartional Inquirer.
  • Save on fuel. Our ranch truck makes a giant carbon footprint!
  • I don't have to get all dressed up. I can shop in my PJ's.

I have come to enjoy my online shopping experiences! I even have ordered those famous Omaha Steaks. Did you know you can even order things like bicycles, car parts, food, drinks (haven't seen alcohol online yet) and so much more. What interests me the most are unique gift items. Remember, I hate shopping for gifts!

I didn't realize all the options available to me. They have just about anything you can think of in gift cards!

Here's a few of the features and options that I have found.

  1. No expiration dates. I hate finding a lost gift card, just to find out that it has expired!
  2. There are no hidden fees. It is what it is! A gift card with a certain value.
  3. There are even e-gifts! These little gems you can email or even plant one on a friends facebook wall!
  4. Oh here's a cool feature. E-gifts are printable on your own printer.

Say you forgot to go shopping for that one special present for your wife or girlfriend. (Hopefully not both, because I have found that one is plenty enough for me to handle!) What do you do? Go online and with a couple clicks of that mouse, you have yourself a gift certificate or gift card in your hot little hand! How cool is that!

There are also some gifts that are right down my alley! I bought myself a remote control that controls my Woman! I wonder if it will really work? I will let ya'll know when it arrives! Yes, it really is a remote and you can purchase one, too!

You ladies certainly don't need a remote control to control men, though! I have found that a bat of an eye with a little nod of the head, and I will follow my Woman anywhere!

That's about as much online shopping I have done and researched so far. I will keep you in the know, as I find more interesting gift ideas out there!
