Looking to buy a Christmas gift card for someone you may not be seeing in person this year? Christmas is just a few days away, so if you're more of a last-minute shopper, you could find yourself in a pickle if you were planning to buy gifts online. If you don't fancy a visit to your local shopping center (or mall), the next best thing is a gift card to their favorite store. It's guaranteed to arrive – in their inbox or on their doorstep – just in time. Almost every retailer offers a gift card option, especially an e-gift card option. Most retailers allow you to choose when you'd like your e-gift card delivered, write a personal message, and select from a range of increments. Just make sure you have their email on hand.

We've selected a few of our favorite shops that offer a gift card option below. Use the links to shop by region. Head to our dedicated Christmas page for more festive content.
