Now you can stock up on everything for the perfect Christmas 2021, even at the last minute. Use your favourite digital wallet and be sure that the shopping will be problem-free.
Give beauty and comfort
1. Home accessories
Decoration and small elements are the things that bring comfort and make the house a home. Choose beautiful accessories and small ornaments that will match the interior of the recipient’s home. You can choose something for Christmas or an object that will be used throughout the whole year. Find the best deals online or in retail stores. Don’t forget to use your plastic and virtual cards issued by iCard to pay for your purchases in just a few seconds.
2. Clothing or accessory from a favourite brand
Did you decide to make your loved ones happy with clothes, jewellery, bag, or other accessories? This is a very good idea if you are sure that you know the taste of the person you are giving the gift to. Be careful, this is a hard task, but not impossible to accomplish. Look at the style of the person to choose the most suitable clothing or accessory. Pay for them with iCard – by debit card, phone, smartwatch, or NFC key fob. Or order the item online and pay with a virtual card. That way, you can use the option to return the product if the size doesn’t fit or something is wrong with it.
Create unforgettable moments
3. Gift voucher for an interesting experience
Another idea for a present that will make your friends and relatives happy is to give them a voucher for an amazing experience. Choose from a large selection of services that will bring unforgettable emotions to your loved ones which you will find on the Internet. For those who love breathtaking moments, choose something extreme such as bungee jumping, parachuting, ballooning, rafting, or flyboarding. For those who prefer relaxation, choose gifts such as wine tasting, massage, or beauty treatments, horse riding, painting and wine, etc. See online and find the most appropriate experience you can make someone happy.
4. Instant camera
Phones and digital cameras undoubtedly make good photos but imagine being able to hold them in your hands as soon as they are taken. This is now possible thanks to instant cameras. A few seconds after you take the picture, a small paper photo comes out of the camera. Make a present with such a camera to a loved one and capture the unforgettable holiday moments together. You can buy it from a retail store and pay with your phone in order not to carry too much cash and wait in queues. Or order it online with a virtual card by iCard. The choice is all yours.
5. Subscription for an online platform
The next gift idea we want to offer you is an online platform subscription. Choose from thousands of paid online entertainment platforms like:
- a platform for listening to music such as Spotify;
- a platform for listening to audiobooks such as Audible;
- streaming platforms for watching movies and series such as Netflix;
- a platform for online games like Steam and many more.
Gift them a monthly subscription to a website or app they haven’t used yet. If they like it, you will know what to give them for the next occasion. Use a virtual card by iCard to pay for your subscription quick, easy, and without risk to your account. After you make the payment, freeze the card until the next transaction.
Let them choose for themselves
6. GiftCard with a unique design and personal message
If you can’t choose what gift to please your friends, relatives or colleagues, choose the safe option and leave it to them to decide. Buy them a GiftCard directly from the iCard app so they can buy whatever they want. Order a plastic or virtual card with a personal design or a photo capturing a favourite memory. Or just choose a design from our app. It’s all up to you. All GiftCards can be issued in the following currencies: EUR, GBP, RON, and BGN.
Make a personalized gift
7. Handmade gift from you
The most valuable gift is the one you put the most effort into, not the most money. Make colleagues, family, and friends happy with something you made yourself. Think in advance what you want to do and buy the materials from a nearby store. Pay for them with your physical or virtual debit card issued by iCard. You can prepare any type of gift. Free your imagination and create a Christmas masterpiece.
Here are some ideas from us:
- a Christmas tree made of chocolates;
- a Christmas jar full of candy and desserts;
- a cup or photo frame with your drawing;
- Christmas cookie products placed in a glass box;
- a Christmas card with a photo.
8. A box full of surprises
Here’s another great idea for a personalized gift that is easy to make and doesn’t take a long time. At the same time, it is very impressive and will delight anyone to whom it is given.
Take a large empty box, decorate it and fill it with the recipient’s favourite products and items. Make a different box for each of your loved ones. Be sure to add Christmas cookies or other traditional holiday sweets. Put inside a delicious drink, beautiful decorations, a warm winter accessory. Use iCard for buying all items. Don’t forget to personalize with the preferences of the person you are giving it to. For example, decorate the box in his favourite colour and leave a card with a personal message.
Maybe buying Christmas presents is not such a difficult task. We know that you will fulfil the plan and make others happy with the best presents. Take advantage of the services of the iCard digital wallet to pay for the gift. Create another account to save money for gifts. All your loved ones will be grateful for the incredible festive mood that you will take care of.
