I have heard people say.."I don't want to get them a gift card...thats so impersonal"!

How about a 50 spot?

What would you rather get....gift cards     money   or a wrapped present that you may or may not like??

and Do you think gift cards are impersonal?

I LOVE gift cards... it's the gift of shopping!  Money is also good.  I don't find it impersonal, I find it practical.  To me it says, "I want you to get exactly what you want or need."

that is exactly what I think.....Although I hate company's that charge a fee to buy a giftcard! Like Plaza Frontenac charges 3.50 to buy a gift card for their prestigious mall..

I love to give and get gift cards.  I think its the way of the world these days.  30-40 years ago, that generation (my parents, and my grandparents) would be appauled with gift cards.

I really enjoy making out my christmas shopping list and figuring out the perfect gift for each person.  I also really appreciate that someone has taken the time and the thought to chose a gift for me.  So, I guess I'm in the minority here, but I prefer thoughtful gifts.

I like getting and giving gifts, but I don't live near my family, so it's pretty impractical to travel with a bunch of gifts and travel home with a bunch of gifts, and I don't have the extra money for shipping in advance or whatever.  My whole family pretty much does gift cards.

I think gift cards or money is fine. I know plenty of people who would rather get them, so they can go out and get something they really like instead of a gift that they may or may not want, may already have, or may not fit.

I love getting gift cards almost as much as money! I don't like stuff, esp. stuff that I won't use or that takes up space :D

I love gift cards and I love giving them, If I am really lazy I would just get someone a card and write them a check..
