Leisure: It is never too late to buy someone a gift card or a gift certificate. Here are a few gift-giving ideas that can make procrastinating on buying till the last minute look like a stroke of genius. Face it. Some people are harder to buy for than others. Anyway, if the gift or the source of the gift is good enough, be smart and go with a gift certificate.

A gift card guarantees that the recipient can always buy something that they want,and they never have to know that you waited until the last minute to buy their present!

Visit To Peak

Say there is someone who loves to ride bicycles on your list, a gift certificate from To Peak is sure to give the recipient an opportunity to pick up something useful. The company sells more biking accessories than most can name. There are special computers, bike tents, bicycle stands, mirrors, work stands, mirrors, fenders, and other items enthusiasts would recognize instantly. Even the air pumps look more decorative than functional. This is good fit for a gift card or certificate.

Skip Barber Driving & Racing Schools

I would absolutely howl if I found a gift certificate to go to racecar driving school stuffed in my stocking. Skip Barber has five principal U.S. locations plus has events at 70 motor tracks yearly nationwide. There is a school for Mazda MX-5 racecars, formula cars, and high performance vehicles, such as Porsches and BMWs. The company also does special and corporate events. Special discounts are being offered for the holiday season.

REI Outdoor Gear

If you are trying to find a gift for the outdoorsman or woman for all seasons, REI Outdoor Gear has something for all comers, including outdoor clothing, footwear, camping equipment, skiing, snowboarding, boating and biking. There are a lot of places that a gift card would come in handy here.

This is another good example where doing less can result in the receiver getting more pleasure from the gift. And that?s what it is all about, right? A gift card empowers the receiver to fill needs purposefully. It is so right up their alley!

Leatherman

There is a little MacGyver in every man. Having the ultimate utility tool would be a dream come true. The Leatherman Skeletool CX is the 2008 Gear of the Year award winner from National Geographic Adventure magazine. It is at least eight tools in one. It is a pair of regular pliers, needle-nose pliers, and wire cutters. This is a very smart tool. The company also has a nice assortment of hunting knives and gardening tools.

Brooks Brothers

What man can't use something to spruce up the wardrobe from the Brooks Brothers' Whether it is a dress shirt, a necktie, or a much-needed new pair of cufflinks or a wallet. This is a wonderful place for a gift card, as there is something special here for everyone.
