Last Minute Ideas: Local Gift Cards via Email or Text

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Recently launched 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 through email or text.
