Gift cards are the perfect gift when you either just don't know what to get or simply don't have the time to shop. Thankfully, most major chain stores nowadays all have their own branded versions.
But how does that help you save time if you have to go running from one store to the next to buy all of the different cards that you need? If you really want to know where to buy gift cards in person though, just keep reading. Try Safeway, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Krogers, Publix, and CVS, etc. If you still can't find just the right gift card from a particular shop, then you can always pick up a Visa or American Express gift card, which both can be used just about anywhere. Unlike the store branded cards, those will cost you an activation fee to purchase, but if you have someone who is that difficult to buy gifts for, you may not mind the extra five dollars or so.
To get a good idea of just how many different brands of gift cards are likely to be available at your local drugstore, check out my guide to gift cards at CVS. You can also find out where to buy Amazon gift cards in person too.
