Giving gifts is hard. Sometimes it's difficult because you don't give a damn about the person whose name you drew, like the cousin who definitely gave you a travel mug he got for free last time he had your name. Thanks, Caleb.
At a minimum, you can at least get a little something for yourself while you're buying gifts. No, we're not talking about a coffee to get you through a day of holiday shopping -- though, you probably deserve that as well. We're talking about the many gift card deals that reward you with a little something for yourself.
Tons of restaurants and stores offer gift card perks for the holidays where, if you buy a gift card for someone else, they'll give you another gift card in a smaller amount for free. You don't have to tell anyone you got that bonus card. You can just pocket it for later.
Here are the best gift card deals available this holiday season. (And check back. We'll be updating this regularly as deals expire and new deals are announced.)
