The clock is ticking when it comes to holiday giving — but the good news is you don’t have to face crowded retail stores to give the best gift this season!
You might have already heard that Clark is not a big fan of gift cards. Besides, unless it’s a store or restaurant someone really likes, a gift card could imply that you really don’t know a thing about the person you give it to — and then they’re stuck with a gift card they don’t even want! Even worse, the restaurant or store could close down!
On the other hand, some gift recipients may appreciate the convenience of a gift card over an ill-suited gift that they may not be able to return or exchange at the store.
But either way, there’s an alternative to avoid both situations — a gift that doesn’t require too much effort that Clark says most, if not all, people will appreciate: Cash!
(There is one notable exception to this rule however, according to the New York Times.)
Here are some creative and personal ways to give money, aside from the traditional money envelope.
