Anniversary Bash #2: $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway from GiftZip.com

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

I love the actual act of giving a gift. Seeing the recipient's face in person, hearing their excitement over the phone or even just getting a thank you email... knowing you've made someone happy just makes you feel good, doesn't it?

However, deciding what to actually give as a gift is a whole other story. Apparel, books, toys, electronics - the list is endless and unless you know for certain what they are going to like, it's all just a guess and a hope that your selection doesn't get returned.

The solution is, and always has been, a gift certificate. Choose a site that focuses on one type of product or pick one that has a wide variety, purchase a gift card in the amount that works for you and you're set. I didn't think it could get much easier than that, but now it has. Because now all of your gift-giving needs are taken care of at one place with just a few clicks of your mouse.

Welcome to GiftZip.

Whether you are planning ahead or shopping for a gift at the last minute, GiftZip.com is where to go for a fast, easy, more efficient way of giving gift certificates from all of the popular online retailers. Not just a short list of stores you've never heard of, GiftZip provides consumers immediate access to hundreds of big name gift cards that can be instantly emailed to the lucky recipient.

How is it done? Simply browse the various categories at GiftZip, conveniently broken down into Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, House, Family and more, and click right on the logo you are interested in. Read over the site's brief description, denominations available and locations where the eGift card is redeemable and then GiftZip it!

As soon as you have clicked, you are brought automatically to the actual retailer's site to purchase the gift certificate - safely, securely and without spending time trying to track down where to go or what steps to take. After you have finished, your eGift card is sent directly to your recipient's inbox or to yourself if you would rather print a copy and give it as a tangible present.

If you're like me, you're now wondering what the catch is. Hidden fees? Having to register for an account? Just tell me, what's in it for you, GiftZip?

The answers? No, no and keeping their retailers happy. When consumers visit GiftZip.com to make their purchases, they save time by having access to so many sites all in one place but the buying is done from the actual retailer of their choice. And those sites know that someone who goes to GiftZip is much more likely to make a purchase than someone who just happens to be browsing, so it's all about the referrals.

In the end, it's a win-win situation for everyone. We get the ease of fast and easy shopping without having to leave the comfort of our own home and a gift that is sure to please that won't get lost (just reprint it from your inbox when necessary). Save time, energy and skip the wasted plastic from gift cards of the past - in today's day and age, it's all about technology and saving the planet, both of which are top GiftZip priorities.

What is your next gift-giving occasion? An anniversary, birthday, retirement, new baby, wedding or something else? For unparalleled selection and speed that results in an eco-friendly gift that everyone is sure to love, GiftZip is the way to go. Also, thanks to their generosity, one person is going to be able to enjoy a great gift card of their own, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 Amazon gift certificate from GiftZip!

I would get the giftcard for Amazon because we buy way too much stuff there.

If I'm supposed to be less generic, then I pick Cafepress because I have my eye on a cute onesie and an adorable shirt there!
