Thank you PayPal for sponsoring this post. Visit PayPal to give the gift people really want this season: money!
The Holidays are a time for families to get together and enjoy both presence and presents. We all desire to be around family this time of the year, and we are usually on the hunt for a perfect gift for those we love. While the hunt for the perfect gift can be fun, it can also be stressful when the recipient lives a long distance away. Many of my siblings and their children live states away, and thankfully PayPal P2P has made long distance gifting super simple this year.
Long Distance Gifting Made Easy With PayPal P2P
PayPal P2P is an amazing gifting solution, especially for those who live out of state. As I mentioned I have siblings, nieces, and nephews who live roughly 8 or more hours away. This makes it difficult to spend time together and it also makes sending gifts a hassle. I don’t know about you, but I do not really like packing up a gift, taking it to the post office, and mailing it, especially this time of the year. Everywhere is so crowded and I always worry about damage when shipping. So this year, I am using PayPal P2P to send my siblings money directly so they can get something that the little ones really want.
While yes, kids love to open gifts, this is still a great option. I will send my brother money using PayPal P2P. He will then get the gift, wrap it, and put my name on it under their tree! How wonderful is that? My nieces get to open their gift on Christmas morning, and I don’t have to stress about shipping! It is a serious win win for long distance giving!
How Does It Work
Now you are interested, and wondering how this all works aren’t you? With PayPal P2P, you can securely send and receive money with family and friends using just a phone number or email address between PayPal accounts. Be it food for Friendsgiving, the taxi to a holiday party, or that group gift for Mom and Dad, there are many reasons to use PayPal P2P payments this holiday season.
PayPal P2P even has a slew of adorable Holiday Greetings to make it even more festive. You can choose from any of the greetings they offer, and customize it for that special someone on your list. I really love these and think they are adorable. The one with the Christmas sweater is my personal favorite, because I have a serious love for ugly Christmas sweaters. You can send a PayPal P2P digital greeting by simply logging into your account on PayPal.com, select Send Money, enter the recipient’s contact information, designate the amount, click the gift box, select your favorite greeting, personalize with a message, and send. The funds go right into their PayPal account; if they don’t have an account, they can quickly open one for free.
Making Use Of Technology
We have come such a long way with all of the advancements in technology in recent years. These advancements really allow for us to “be there” for loved ones even though they may live hundreds or thousands of miles away. We now have the ability to video chat and send money instantly, I mean how great is that?
PayPal P2P, along with other technology, is making my Holidays so much easier. I know my daughter is looking forward to opening gifts with her cousins on Christmas, even though they are in different states. Watching the girls all open their gifts is such a wonderful sight, and I love knowing that they got exactly what they wanted.
Make The Holidays Merry
Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year, and we are making it extra Merry with meaningful and wanted gifts this year. No more re-gifting or getting gifts that can’t be exchanged. I know some people feel like money isn’t really a “meaningful” gift, but I promise it is. Everyone gets what they want and need! It takes a lot of stress off as well. You won’t have to wonder if they will like their gift, or fight the crowds at the store, and no more waiting on delayed shipping either! So, if you’re in need of a last-minute gift or simply just don’t know what to get all of the people on your list, seize the season with PayPal’s free P2P holiday greetings so people can get what they really want this year: MONEY.
