Although they are often looked at as the easy way out when it comes to giving presents, gift cards are more popular than ever during the holidays. But if you’re going to forgo thinking of the perfect gift for a friend and instead get them a gift card you’re going to want to at least make sure you get them a good one.

Well, WalletHub has just come out with their list of the best gift cards, judging cards on a variety of criteria including:

  • How popular the cards are
  • How much of a discount you can buy them for
  • How much you can sell them for
  • How much people like the retailer
