I have a really hard time with getting people gift certificates as gifts. I want to prove to them that I’ve put a lot of thought into their gift and chosen something they will like. Of course that way I run the risk of failing miserably.
On the other hand, I LOVE receiving gift certificates. I’m very picky when it comes to my stuff so I think it’s probably just better for everyone this way. Although I still do REALLY REALLY appreciate thoughtful handpicked gifts, I don’t feel offended when I get gift certificates and I often wish for them so I can get myself things that I’ve wanted for some time but haven’t splurged on.
Here’s my gift certificate greed list;
