When you don’t know what to get someone for a birthday or holiday, gift certificates are an option. They can be purchased for any amount to almost any store including Sears, JCPenney and Kmart. You can get gift certificates that are not specific to any store so that the recipient can use them anywhere. If the person doesn’t like the store that the certificate is for, it can usually be exchanged for something else or cash. Coupons or a promo code found at Giving Assistant can be used to help save you money on many varieties of certificates.
