If you waited too long to do your holiday shopping or you just don’t know what to get someone on your list, that’s where digital gift cards come in.

A digital gift card, also known as an e-gift card or online gift card, can be easily sent via email to a friend, coworker, family member or anyone else. Many stores offer them, which is especially helpful in a year when leaving the house to go shopping isn’t totally recommended.

Websites like GiftCards.com and Gift Card Mall also make it easy to purchase gift cards from several different brands (including classic Visa gift cards). Gift Card Mall even sells multi-store gift cards, including some that donate a portion of proceeds to charities like the Wounded Warrior Project, Feeding America and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

If your recipient is notorious for not checking their email, however, you can also send physical gift cards through the mail. Make sure to check the shipping times for these though to ensure your gift card will get there in time!

Take a look at some of the top gift cards sorted by category to buy online and send this holiday season. Seriously, no one has ever been upset to receive money for shopping at their favorite store.
