Mint unveils new 'Christmas card'

Christmas is a time for giving, but it can also be the most stressful part of the whole holiday for some families according to Mint.

With the jolly season just around the corner, many people have already started making a mental list of what to get those who are naughty or nice.

Most people fear giving cash as a present, opting for boxer shorts, shaving cream or chocolates, because they donít want to be impersonal.

But the Mint Gift Card has arrived and it is taking the stress and embarrassment out of gift giving.

Jerry Toher, managing director of Mint, says that the card was devised because the surprise isnít always good when people open presents.

"Over one in ten Brits cite disappointment when tearing off a parcelís wrappings," he said of research done through his company.

"The Mint Gift Card has been designed to counter this, making it easy for shoppers looking for a suitable gift.

"Remembering someoneís birthday or a special occasion is hassle enough without the added worry of what the get them as well."

The Mint Gift Card has the same appearance as a credit card, with the recipients name printed on the front, along with a message from the gift bearer.

Like a credit card, a balance is attainable and if lost or stolen it can be replaced.

Mint research discovered that 35 per cent of men asked would prefer to choose their own gift, while 74 per cent of women still like the element of surprise and thought.
