As someone who shops all the time and writes gift guides for a living, I'm here to make a case for gift cards. Gift cards don't get the appreciation they deserve. Some people dismiss a gift certificate as a lazy way to get out of shopping, but I actually think it's the most thoughtful gift you can receive. Instead of getting a present you don't like or something you already have, you acquire the gift of choice. You can stock up on your tried and true favorites or you can branch out and try something new without spending your own money. What's not to love about that?

It doesn't get better than an Amazon gift card because Amazon has millions of items. I mean, is there anything you can't get on Amazon these days? The possibilities are endless, but if you want help narrowing down your shopping, here are some E! Shopping Editor-approved picks.
