When everyone on your Christmas list is someone you love and know very, very well, shopping is made simple. But gift recipients are rarely confined to those you can comfortably predict, and those people are exactly who gift cards were made for.

Whether you're grabbing one for your office Secret Santa exchange or finding something for your kids' teachers, a gift card is the perfect way to say "I care enough about you to buy you a gift, but let's be honest, I don't know you all that well."

Now before you protest and say gift cards are too generic for your purposes, let us assure you that these plastic pieces of money come in many guises, for every personality you might know.

We've put together the best options across Canada for your purchasing pleasure. And don't forget — to make it a bit more personal, include the gift card in a greeting card with a sweet message.
