Giving a gift card for the holidays has never looked so good thanks to this glorious partnership between PayPal and well-known designer Jonathan Adler. It makes sense: Sometimes giving money for the holidays can be the best gift (PayPal points out that about 62 percent of people prefer money during the holidays) — so why not make that transaction feel thoughtful and personal?
Through their P2P (person-to-person) program, one person on PayPal can send money over to another person — just as easily as they could through Venmo, Chase Quick Pay, or whatever other money-sharing app. However, PayPal stands out because of the stylish holiday cards to choose from by Adler. Even if you don't recognize the name, I am almost positive that you've seen his work in Barnes & Noble, Paper Source, or any other book or stationary store near you.
“Money makes the world go round, which kind of makes it the perfect present," said Adler in a press release with PayPal. "Sending money digitally as a gift never felt truly personal or stylish—until now. With PayPal, we have created something that with just a few clicks lets you send money easily and chicly. It's a gift people areas excited to receive as they are to spend.”
All it takes is a few clicks on your computer or phone - which means skipping a stressful trip to the mall this week. Just choose who on your list still needs a gift, enter in their emails, and your holiday shopping will be all done in a matter of seconds! Here's how it works.
It's as easy as that — enter in which friend you want to give to, choose one of the stylish designs by Adler, add a message, and send!
So if you're still caught in a last-minute gift shopping bind, what better way to put a stop to that internal stress and give the gift of spending? Plus it's the perfect way to give a gift for those in your life that you still have no idea what to get for — like your landlord, a picky relative, even your brother who always thinks your gift ideas are lame. Stop trying to please everyone, and give them the option to choose what they really want for the holidays.
