Recently launched GiftBar.com is a site that allows you to go gift card shopping all in one place - all from locally-owned boutiques. This Chicago-based start-up purveys gift cards from Cerato, Sofia, Apartment Number9, Shrine Haberdashers, The Dailey Method, Jules and more. Plus, if you find yourself scratching your head about which merchant to support then you can let the recipient decide by giving them a dollar ammount and letting them choose the GiftBar of their choice. It get's cooler, especially for last-minute shoppers. In the age of technology, you don't even have to worry about shipping - you can send any gift card form GiftBar.com through email or text.
