Giving the perfect gift is most definitely one of the most satisfying feelings, but this gift cards chart explains why the most coveted gift this holiday season is nothing but a piece of plastic.

2012 is a monumental year for the gift card as by the end of the year, over $110 billion will have been loaded onto them with projections estimating that that figure will rise to over $138 billion by 2015. A peculiar comparison is made for the number of cards in production: if they were put end-to-end, gift cards could go back and forth between earth and the moon 23 times. The large portion of gift card money that was lost in previous years is on a steady decline, but the percentage of fraud is on a steady increase.
