If you need to find a great emailable gift, check out our list of the 5 best digital gifts below!
1. Digital Gifts for the Mediaphile
Don’t we all have that friend who is always talking about the newest shows, movies, and music?
Streaming service subscriptions or gift cards are the perfect last-minute online gifts for any mediaphile in your life.
If they don’t already have a Netflix account, get them a Netflix gift card. It works like cash, and Netflix will let them know when their balance is about to run out if they decide they want to continue paying for their account!
Another option is a Spotify Premium membership. The premium account is ad-free allows users to download music offline and skip whatever tracks they don’t like!
2. Amazon Prime
A membership for Amazon Prime is the perfect digital gift for the shoppers in your life. With Amazon Prime, your recipient will get 2-day shipping on eligible items, access to unique Prime TV shows and their music streaming service, as well as the option to borrow books from their catalog.
Prime also allows gives you some tasty discounts from Whole Foods and Prime Pantry, Amazon’s grocery delivery service.
3. Gifting for the Gamer
If you’re shopping for a teenager (or adult!), you might be looking for something they can incorporate into their gaming lifestyle.
A Steam gift card is your best bet if the giftee is a fan of PC games. Steam gift cards will allow the recipient to buy new games to add to their Steam library, which they can access and play at any time!
Other gift cards are available too, such as Nintendo eShop gift cards or Playstation Store gift cards. If you’re buying for a Fortnite player, you can always gift them V-bucks, the Fortnite currency that allows players to buy new characters, upgrades, etc.
4. Rosetta Stone
If you have a friend or family member with international travel plans, consider gifting them a Rosetta Stone subscription. Learning a language is a gift that can last a lifetime!
Rosetta Stone has 15+ languages to choose from, so you’re sure to find something your recipient will enjoy studying.
You have the option to give them a 3 month, 6 month, 1 year, or 2-year subscription. Make sure after you buy the gift that you turn off the auto-renewal, or you’ll be gifting your recipient much more than you’d intended.
5. Giftly—the “Physical” Digital Gift
Not everyone loves gift cards. There are many people who appreciate receiving a more personalized gift, and Giftly helps gifters meet that goal.
On Giftly, you can choose just about anything to give as digital gifts. You can pick things such as coffee, a spa day, museum tickets, or even airfare!
Giftly then prompts you to suggest a place to do it, so if you have a favorite cafe, for example, you can buy them a coffee for that location. However, you can also choose the “anywhere” option.
If you want to personalize the gift, even more, make your own ecards and send one off to accompany the gift. When you can’t give someone a physical card, an ecard is a perfect alternative!
If you choose Giftly, make sure your recipient knows that they will have to “redeem” their Giftly credit, either transferring it to their PayPal account or credit card, instead of printing the gift receipt and bringing it to the suggested location.
No Wrapping Required
Digital gifts are the perfect way to show someone you care without going to the store to find the perfect item.
When you are crunched for time, buy a digital gift and celebrate that you won’t have to break out the wrapping paper and scotch tape!
