about giving gift certificates as gifts? Are they not personal enough? Do you think people prefer them over an actual gift?

I personally like to give and receive gift certificates. It's nice to have that to rely on for that extra picky person you're giving to, or if you just don't know what to give them. I think some appreciate it, but then there are those that prefer the opening of a gift.

I love getting and receiving them, but my parents always act like you insulted them when you give them one and I always just want to say "what is wrong with you that you don't like gift cards". My dad says they are not personal. sigh

Well, I think it depends on what the gift card is for, because it really is a personal gift if you know the person well enough to know which stores they would like to shop for themselves at.

But I always ask my mom for gift cards for the grocery store, gas station, and Tim Hortons. Those are not quite so personal, but that's what I need, so I love them!

with Laney21...if the gift card is to that person's favorite store or place then I would consider it personal.


I love getting Gift Cards!!!

I always have thought that if it is to somewhere you would want to shop, then it's plenty personal, but my parents are weird I guess.
