    Is there somewhere that you can buy a variety of gift cards online?

    I'd like to do a whole bunch of $5-$10 gift cards for my 20year old niece for Christmas and I thought it would be handy to buy them online if possible. Anybody know of any websites to do this?

    Along the same lines....can you purchase some sort of "display" or "tree" or something to package the gift cards in? How have you wrapped gift cards for gifts?

    Bummer! :guilty:

    They don't have any of the ones I was thinking of. I was thinking Starbucks, McDonalds, Taco Bell, Gas Card(mobil, shell) Blockbuster.

    The only one they had was blockbuster.

    What other teen or young adult gift cards can you guys think of?

    Hmm...Target is a good place to get one for. Teens can always find something there. How about the movie theater? If you have a Walgreens or CVS they have tons of GC's to other places that you can purchase right in their store. That way you aren't driving all over town to find them.

    Try givefun.com , they have quite the variety including barnes & Noble, Starbucks, AMC, Napster, itunes, etc.

    quickgifts.com is another.

    And this one is really interesting, card avenue , you can even get them at a discount.

    ETA--at certificate swap you can even trade cartds, or buy/sell at a discount

    To "wrap" them, one idea is to purchase a cheap, fun wallet. Of course the obvious is a Disney one, but if you could find one related to whatever her interest or favorite color are, that would be cool.

    We have a store here called Five Below that often has character wallets. Walmart, Doller Store or Hot Topic might also have something.

    This is probably what I'm going to do. I want to get a bunch of actual gift cards(not certificates) for like $5 to $10 each to give to her and it looks like all these sites either give you a certificate they redeem online or they charge like $1.95 per card. I guess I'll just buy them in person. I thought online would be easier but it seems not.

    Check out Walgreens if you have one near you they carry a variety of gift cards. Our local supermarket carries some as well.They are popping up everywhere.Not sure if your neices and nephews have IPOds But what about an I Tune gift certificate. They can purchase their songs with it.Good Luck!
