Now that we’re this deep into December, it may be time to stop trying to find the perfect gift and start thinking about getting that thing that will allow the recipient to get whatever he wants at his own leisure. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking gift cards or gift certificates. Whether you think they are the gift of last resort or not, you have to admit they are convenient, get the job done, and still fit within the parameters of “it’s the thought that counts.”

Warby Parker
The company that has given away over 500,000 pairs of glasses to people in need through their buy a pair, give a pair campaign have a couple quick gift solutions for the man in your life who will, at some point, need to replace those old frames of his. Since that particular selection process is a rather personal one, an E-Gift Card, which you can buy and send on the same day through the magic of email, or a physical gift card and make-a-snowman kit, which is sent through the mail, could be the perfect way to nudge your man to buy some stylish frames, and, in turn, provide a pair of glasses who can’t afford the luxury of 20-20 vision. The gift card and make-a-snowman kit must be purchased by December 19 if you want it to arrive in time for Christmas.

Dollar Shave Club
The company known for its irreverent commercials and “beardvertising” campaign has a quick and easy gift giving solution for those who actually take the time to shave some stuff from time to time. E-Gift Cards are available in $25, $50, $100, $200 & $300 and will be delivered at the time you specify. These instant gifts are good for anything at Dollar Shave Club and are applied each month to any membership that is chosen.

Fluevog Shoes
Anyone who’s been reading this column from the beginning knows the high regard I have for Fluevog Shoes. As it stands, I currently own more Fluevogs than any other brand of footwear because they make me happy every time I put them on. You can help bring that sort of joy to the man in your life by buying him a Fluevog gift certificate. These gift certificates, available in any denomination between $15 and $999 can be spent online or in any John Fluevog store. Certificate orders are processed Monday through Friday between 9am and 4pm PST excluding holidays.
