Do you have a friend, family member or loved one who waits until the last possible minute to buy you a gift each holiday season? I do (actually, that just described my boyfriend, brother, and a few other people I know). So lemme try to help all of us out right now. Perhaps you can leave this post open on your laptop, or somehow find a way to get it in front of their eyes.
Did you know that PayPal is an authorized seller of Sephora gift cards on eBay? And they have email gift cards HERE that deliver within 24 hours of purchase? And the recipient can use them online or in-store at Sephora?
And you can also buy them on Amazon HERE, which couldn't be easier if you already have an Amazon account. (Thanks to reader Santina for that tip!)
You may be asking yourself, "Well G., why wouldn't they just order through Sephora? Or go to a gift card kiosk at the drugstore, grocery store, etc.?"
Well sure, they CAN do those things. But if we're talking about my boyfriend and brother, those two guys will end up at a retailer that doesn't have Sephora gift cards. And I know (because they've told me) that they don't want to deal with the hassle of creating an account or even purchasing as a guest at Sephora, when they already have eBay and Amazon accounts. And since you use PayPal to purchase these Sephora gift cards on eBay, it literally could not make things any easier since they don't even have to whip out their credit cards and enter numbers.
So yeah. They don't have to leave the house, they don't have to create a Sephora account, and they can use PayPal. AND WE GET SEPHORA GIFT CARDS!
PS: to all the friends, family members and loved ones reading this, YES, WE WANT SEPHORA GIFT CARDS. This is an awesome gift that you should not think twice about giving us. We will use them, we will love them, and we will be grateful for them. I'm an expert on this, so you can trust me. OK, I'm not an expert on this, but I'm 99.99% certain that everything I've said is true and that the beautiful person you're buying this card for will love it. It may take him/her a while to decide what he/she wants to buy, but do not interpret hesitation as an indication of displeasure. It takes us a while to figure out exactly how we want to use our Sephora gift cards, but that's part of the fun. We may even have a weird, stressed out look on our faces while we're shopping, but inside we're loving it. Please just trust me on that one.
