Social Dilemma - Is It Okay To Give Gift Cards For Christmas?

posted by Jaime Roberts - 

Was having this conversation with my nieces while I was visiting them over the weekend.  We were talking about Christmas gifts and how sometimes it's really hard to find the perfect gift.  And sometimes, there's just not enough time in the day to get the perfect gift.  So I said I'm a big fan of giving gift cards for Christmas.  First off, I love getting them, so I'm going off that and guessing that others love getting them too.  Plus it allows someone to really go get something they really want instead of me trying to pick out the perfect gift and getting it all wrong.  One of them agreed with me 100%, while my other niece said no way...too impersonal, and she's offended she gets a gift card because she thinks it's a lazy way out.  I said no way, I think it's very thoughtful.  But she wouldn't be budged.  She said buy a gift or nothing at all.   So I ask you.  Do you think it's okay to give a gift card as a Christmas gift?  Or do you think it's lazy or impersonal?  I'm all for it.  What about you?
