There are two camps of people out there:
The people that HATE getting giftcards because they think they're impersonal and "too easy"
The people that LOVE getting giftcards, because they know no matter what, they can buy what they like.
Both are valid...but I find myself in the latter of the two these days. Don't get me wrong- I LOVE gifts when they are thoughtful and from someone who knows me SO well that I get all weepy when I open them - but if someone doesn't know me very well, I'd rather get a giftcard than a random gift that I will inevitably give to Goodwill within the month.
To me they say: Hey Laura! I think you're neat! I'd like to get you a gift to SHOW you you're neat, but...well...I don't want to mess it all up, so here's a giftcard to a store I know you like!"
So for those of you out there with giftcards after the holiday season: This week is dedicated to you.
