Play it Safe, Give Gift Cards to Your Favorite Tall People

Christmas is coming…as in, it’s almost here! Undoubtedly you have a few items left on your to-buy list. My solution for last minute gifts is pretty simple: gift cards.

I know gift cards seem impersonal and it’s more fun to find that perfect gift yourself. You envision the recipient’s grateful expression as they tell you they can’t believe you knew exactly what to buy them (and ideally it’s in a crowded room so everyone can see just how awesome you are). But the truth about gift cards is, they are [how shall I put it] necessary!

Gift cards especially come in handy when there is a tall gal or guy on your Christmas list. I love gifts (who doesn’t), but being a tall girl myself I’ve definitely experienced the disappointment when holding up that sweater and realizing the sleeves aren’t even going to reach your wrist. Or opening that pair of jeans and knowing that though the 80s are coming back, there is no way you could pull off those high waters. Then comes the awkward part of either admitting it doesn’t fit or feigning adoration of the gift.

I’m guessing that little scenario isn’t the one you’ve been envisioning. So it’s okay—even preferred—to play it safe with a gift card! You can still personalize it by getting one from the perfect store where you know your tall friend or family member can find plenty of tall clothing to suit her needs. And seriously, you’re giving the gift of guilt-free shopping! Is it me, or is that one of the best gifts of all?! So go ahead, purchase that gift card and have no fear—you’ll see that look of appreciation and you’ll know that it’s real!
