  • Gift card. Some people worry that's it's too impersonal, but I actually like picking something out. If they give me a gift card for a place they know I love, then they obviously still put some thought into it. I actually like giving gift cards if I think someone would like something from a particular clothing store, but I don't know their size. Also, my brother was saving up for a game system, and because a few of us gave him Best Buy gift cards he was able to get it quicker. I'd rather make sure they get something they really want than buy something they don't need or like.

  • Gift card. I know it's the thought that counts, and I will graciously accept anything, but I really enjoy shopping for myself (because I don't do it very often at all) so it's a double treat.

  • Probably a gift card, unless the person buying the gift really knows me well (i.e.- my family, my husband, etc)

  • It depends on who it's from. Anyone other than immediate family, I'd prefer a gift card. But really, it doesn't matter much to me. I'm not picky, and I appreciate anything. :)

  • From DH, definitely a real gift!

    From the rest of my friends and family, a gift card is fine.
