DODGEVILLE, Wis., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Easy to give, fun to get and always fits. It's no surprise gift cards are topping recipients' wish lists this holiday season as the number one requested item, according to the National Retail Federation's 2013 Gift Card Spending Survey. The popularity of gift cards doesn't end there – with eight out of 10 gift givers planning to purchase gift cards. Whether a procrastinator or simply on the prowl for the perfect present, Lands' End Gift Cards are ideal go-to gifts for holiday shoppers.
"Picking out presents for friends and family can be a challenge any time of year – but especially over the holidays," said Carl Atwell, vice president, Lands' End Business Outfitters. "This, coupled with the shorter holiday shopping season this year, means that millions of people are still hunting for their holiday gifts. Let your loved ones pick out exactly what they want – from cashmere sweaters to down outerwear – with a Lands' End Gift Card."
A Perfect Fit: Gift Cards and e-Gift Cards. Whether customers shop last minute or late at night from their phone, tablet or home computer, Lands' End Gift Cards always fit, will never lose value and will never expire. The company's legendary Gift Cards are available as an e-Gift Card or as a wallet-size plastic card. The traditional wallet-sized gift cards with festive prints are available at landsend.com, by calling 1-800-800-5800 or at any of the Lands' End Shops at Sears and Lands' End Stores.
E-Gift Cards are available at landsend.com and are sent via e-mail. Just in time for the holidays, Lands' End has introduced new enhancements to its e-Gift Cards to make them even more personalized. Shoppers can upload an image such as a family photo, record a special audio message or select e-Gift Cards that include animation and video.
Available up to $500, a Lands' End Gift Card works like a debit card and can be applied to any Lands' End purchase up to the amount for which it was issued, including all merchandise, shipping charges, taxes or special services like monogramming and gift boxing. The e-Gift Card may be printed out and presented and used the same as a physical gift card.
Good news for procrastinators – e-Gift Cards can be scheduled for delivery to the recipient's in-box a few minutes to one year in advance. While wallet-size Gift Cards are mailed in an attractive packet and usually arrive within four to seven days with standard shipping. Gift Card recipients can shop Lands' End any way they choose: online, in stores or by calling 1-800-800-5800.
Holiday Spirit on Display
Inspired by exclusive prints found throughout the Lands' End holiday collection, the Gift Cards – whether a printed e-Gift Card or physical plastic card – are replete with holiday spirit. Fun and festive Gift Card designs include Penguins, Holiday Fair Isle, Pine Cones and Holiday House featuring a charming evergreen-flanked house set amidst a snowy village scene.
Additional Gift Card designs can be found at landsend.com/giftcards, including three exclusive e-Gift Card designs from the Lands' End e-Gift Card Art Contest. In addition to receiving a $500 Lands' End Gift Card, the finalist with the most popular design following the holiday season will receive a $1,000 Lands' End Gift Card plus $1,000 for a charity of his or her choice.
