  • If you don't know what things I like or use, then a gift card.

  • I usually like to get gifts. Gift cards are nice, but they're kind of thoughtless to me. If someone has absolutely no idea what to get me, then I don't mind the gift cards. Like you said, I'd rather get them than some crappy useless gift. lol

  • From a close, personal friend or family member who knows me, I'd rather get a gift. I truly believe it's the thought that counts, and I'd rather they put some effort into something a bit more personal than a gift card. However, if they're not going to put any effort into it anyway (i.e., they're just going to go to the store and pick up the first thing they see), I'd rather get the gift card.

    If it's someone who doesn't know me very well, I'm fine with a gift card, but I'd appreciate any effort there, as well.

  • Gifts if it's something I can use, if not then a gift card

  • I really like gifts. Its just nice to enjoy a gift that I may not have thought to buy myself. When I receive gift cards, I never end up spending them on myself. I usually buy DD and DH new clothes or something they need.

  • When you buy a gift just to have something for that person to open...then I feel a gift card is better. When you find something for that person, you know they will just love, than a gift is better. I like a gift that a person has put some though into. If not then safe the money on useless crap and buy a gift card. : )

  • It depends on who it's from. My parents, husband, and brother always know what I'd like. From everyone else, I'd probably prefer a gift card, but I'm grateful for any gift. It doesn't matter very much to me, and I pretty much like everything. I'm one of those people that are easy to buy for. :)
