The gift card. A practical, but not so impersonal gift. It’s like saying, I want to give you cash, but I’m going to give it in the form a card, so you can spend this cash at a certain store or restaurant or mall.

“If I were to rank actual gifts, cash and gift cards, cash would be first (obviously), then gift cards and actual gifts would come dead last. The only gifts I really enjoy receiving are handmade ones.
A lot of people don’t like giving cash as gifts if they’re not relatives of the recipient or if it’s not a very special occasion such as a wedding or a baptism. Others think that giving cash is too impersonal. I would personally rather get cash because I find it offers more flexibility than a gift card.”
As much as I’m not a fan of greeting cards, it’s always fun seeing a gift card or cash inside. Read the post and then share your thoughts on whether or not you’d want to receive a gift card as a present. Just an aside: How come they’re not called present cards?
