If there's an Xbox enthusiast in your life, you may want to consider buy a subscription card that would enhance his/her enjoyment of playing video games. It could be the only Christmas present that the person desires. There is a big advantage to use such a card over going to Xbox Live's website to purchase one. It is mentioned here on a paragraph below.
It is ingenious to purchase a subscription card during the holiday season. The reason is that you won't be spending a lot of time wrapping a tiny card. In fact, you could just place it in an envelope with a Christmas card. Then you give it away as it is after writing a pleasant greeting on the Christmas card, and the recipient's name in front of the envelope.
It's too bad at the time of writing this that they don't have a Christmas-theme image on the subscription card. I think that would entice consumers to buy the product.
