Oprah Says "Fun Gift Card Idea"

Another very cool gift idea, along with a discount! When I read about this I thought it was very clever. I have always been a little reluctant to give gift cards to my family and friends. I always felt like it showed a lack of thought. Maybe it's just me because everyone loves to receive them. Well, now Visa is offering a way to completely personalize a gift card.

Gift Card Lab is a website that allows completely customizable Visa Gift Cards. Very much like the customizable credit cards. You may choose to use stock images or your very own photos to create gift cards for anyone on your list.

Yes, this does come with a small price tag. Prices of the cards start at $5.95 but if you use the promo code "pumpkin" you will receive a $2 per card discount!

I think anyone on your list would appreciate this very thoughtful gift. Just remember to use promo code "pumpkin" for your discount. Again, no Black Friday crowds to fight through.

I'm a very thoughtless person I recon because the older I get it becomes more a hassle so I simply give a card and money and let them buy for themselves except the Grandbabies, but the parents tell us what to get.

The only thing with customizable gift cards is if the person giving it to you is a prankster. What if someone gives you one with the picture of them mooning you, and you have to hand that over at Walmart or the grocery store? I guess there's always the scanning machines, but you'd have to hold your hand just so over the card so the whole world didn't see butt cheeks next to the Visa logo.

Maybe the TOS says they have to be rated G pics.

Other than that, it sounds like a good idea.

I'd like one customized to read, "This card is worth $1 million." Now that would be a cool gift! ;)

I think this is an excellent idea and gives the receiver lots of choice and flexibility.
