PITTSBURGH, Jan. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day gifts can be tricky, especially if your relationship is somewhere between flowers and an engagement ring. If you’re stuck for an idea, don’t worry, gift cards make a great gift for almost any event or occasion.

There are two types of gift cards to consider for your Valentine’s Day gifts, single retail/merchant cards and universally accepted cards. Retailer/merchant gift cards are gift cards that are redeemable at specific retailers or restaurants. These gift cards are generally loaded with a pre-set value, and are good only at the retailer or restaurant for which the card was purchased. Retail/Merchant gift cards can be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift if you know the name of your spouse’s, partner’s or friend’s favorite store or restaurant. If this is the option you are looking for, don’t forget to look for discounted gift cards that you can purchase for less than face value, which provide you with instant savings.

Universally accepted gift cards, on the other hand can be used for almost anything. These types are usually backed by one of the major card associations such as Visa®, MasterCard® or Discover(TM), and are able to be used anywhere that association is accepted. If you’re not sure which store or restaurant would be best or if you don’t have the time to visit multiple locations, these type of gift cards are a great choice for Valentine’s Day. It’s also possible to personalize gift cards by uploading an image and customizing the message on the card.

This Valentine’s Day, forget the stress of choosing a gift for your partner or friend, and remember: gift cards are the perfect gift for any occasion.
