So, here’s the deal: you worry gift cards are too impersonal, but then you can’t find the perfect thing for the right person under the wire. Enter: Giftbar Dallas. After successful launches in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, the exclusive, digital gift card company has brought its contemporary service to Big D. Co-founders Jen Morris and Kara Kaplan offer a website of gift card options edited down to a hand-picked selection of local boutiques. Dallas’ lineup includes Forty Five Ten, Nest, Nicole Kwon, Number One, Q Clothier, and the T Room. (Full disclosure: I recommended a handful of local shops to the Giftbar gals pre-launch.) Each gift card can be personalized and sent via text, email, and mail. No need to even hit the store amid the holiday chaos. See an example of how it looks to receive a Giftbar note here. Now scratch a couple prezzies off your shoping list.
