Depends on what for and who.

If I know their favorite store or restaurant, then I give a gift card. If not then I write a check. I also write a check for birthday or wedding gift, because so many people no longer feel it's necessary to send a thank you note, so if I send a check, I know whether it's been cashed or not. Gift cards can get lost in the mail, then it's a problem.

I like gift cards. It is very easy for me to budget with them. Also, my daughter's school participates in scrip. We get a % of the gift card amount as a rebate off her tuition. It's a win-win for us to use gift cards.

I'd prefer cash but a gift card works too.

To give or to receive?  If i was the recipient, I'd take either.  If I was giving a gift, I'd give a giftcard over cash.

I'm not picky, I would take either.
