It’s the end of October and the Winter Holidays are right around the corner. What do they bring with them? The eternal problem of gift giving.

Here are some important numbers:

According to the National Retail Federation (NRF) and Proper Insights, 56 percent of shoppers in 2016 planned to use gift cards as gifts. In 2015, according to megaplaza.com, gift cards ranked the number one most favorable holiday gift. Over $100 Billion is spent on gift cards each year (ejgiftcards.com) and the market grows by 10 percent annually (revelsystems.com).

Inc. reports that, according to a survey by the NPD Group, “Only 25 percent of the consumers in the study told NPD that they did not plan on purchasing gift cards this holiday season…”

Even more important…

In 2010, First Data published a survey stating that 72 percent of gift card shoppers spend more than the balance on the gift card. Approximately 11 percent of gift card recipients reported they had never or rarely visited the merchant before receiving the card.

With these numbers, your business simply can’t afford not to offer gift cards this holiday season.
