Gift card kiosk
Gift cards have long been a popular option for holiday shoppers who are short on time and bereft of ideas. But in the past, givers had to make a difficult choice. Gift cards from credit card issuers or banks could be used almost everywhere but were often loaded with expiration dates and inactivity fees. Retail cards were usually free of such restrictions but required givers to select an appropriate retailer — a challenge if you had trend-conscious teenagers on your list.
