Tis the season to start thinking ahead of what you want to give people for the holidays. Let’s be honest, no wants to be boring when they give that special someone a gift, but what if you could treat yourself while in the giving spirit this holiday?
We’re talking about gift cards. You know those crazy fun items you see hanging at the local checkout counter. Well now those gift cards are EVERYWHERE including right here at Ling & Louie’s and this holiday we have a special offer. Read on!
So where did the idea of a gift card originate? According to the reliable source known as Wikipedia the gift card idea came from Blockbuster video. Here you thought they were just the ones to enforce the “be kind rewind” rule, but no they were so much bigger than that. Blockbuster came up with the idea of a gift card back in 1994 after the invention of color printers/copiers. The company tried to come up with an idea that people couldn’t steal and copy and the gift card was born. Shortly after Blockbuster started seeing success with these nifty items other places started to jump on board.
Not sure what to get the babysitter, teacher, neighbor, co-worker or that special someone on your list?
