This year it’s harder than ever (and not really advised!) to get to the shops. There are a number of barriers to picking and delivering the perfect gifts for our loved ones at the moment. Many of us can’t seem to find the time to trawl through online stores, let alone collect the delivered parcels and wrap them (again, requiring purchases) and then deliver them to friends and family.
When it’s getting closer to Christmas, no one wants to risk their ordered parcel not turning up, either.
At the end of the day, the “last minute” gift of cash doesn’t have to be a thoughtless gift. Here are five ways you can fancy-up your Settle mobile payment to friends and family to show you’ve really put thought into it.
With a vaccine for COVID-19 around the corner, there’s hope that we might be able to go see our favourite band in concert again or don your football team’s colours to cheer them on in person. Send the gift of a ticket to an upcoming event in 2021 by transferring the value of entry price plus a link to where you can buy tickets.
Buying someone else an item of clothing is risky at the best of times. Think about your girlfriend/boyfriend/mum’s favourite store and suggest they treat themselves to a… shirt, dress, beanie, etc. with the money you send through.
It doesn’t have to be a beauty salon. It could be a fancy barber or the hairdresser. It’s been a year of hibernation for most and when it’s safe, you can bet the salons will be overrun with people looking to make themselves presentable for the outside world again. The value of a haircut or a manicure with an accompanying note will be greatly appreciated by most!
Sometimes it’s as simple as that. If you know that your gift recipient is saving towards a house, a car, a bike or just an expensive new jacket, help them out with a lump sum of your choosing intended to be put towards their goal.
Until it’s safe to dine out again, many have been mostly making food at home. Give someone a break for the night with enough cash to either spend on a fancy dinner out when it’s doable or instead, enough money for a burger and fries home delivered. However much you spend, the gift of not having to cook again is always appreciated.
