Do you think it's fine to make a gift certificate a present-or do you feel it's a cheap out because you didn't go searching for the "right" gift?

I think it's only okay if your really at a loss of what to get them. If not, it's cheap.

its the thought that counts

I don't think it's cheap, but I try to find the right gift before getting gift certificates.

Maybe they aren't very thoughtful, but they're awesome. I love to pick out my own presents.

For some people, the right gift is a gift certificate.

I personally think it's more thoughtful than just money - it shows you've actually tried.

However, I'd rather have the "just money".

Gift certificates are okay as long as you give them with care.

I dont see what is wrong with that. I have been given gift cards more than once. It gave me the chance to decide for myself what to get and that way I get more than I would have probably if they were to just buy me something.

Sure, some people are hard to buy for. My mom has stopped giving me gift certificates because she says I never buy presents for myself. If I get a gift card to a department store I buy milk, laundry detergent or dish soap or something.

i'd rather receive one than a bad present

I think it's pretty lame to give, but it's actually a pretty nice gift.

I think it's a lot better than buying somthing that the gift-recipient is going to hate.

I love gift certificates/cards!
The only problem is that you know how much money was spent on you, and when you have those stupid cents left over...

I love gift certificates, I can buy whatever I want without having to worry about it being something weird or something inconvenient to buy (plants, fragile things, etc).

A gift card can be okay in some circumstances (when I was in college, getting them from out of town relatives was awesome) but I don't think it makes sense for a relationship of equals.

i like them but then i don't. yeah, it makes it seem as if you couldn't be bothered to come up with an actual gift, but then the person gets to go buy something they will actually use and enjoy, rather than something you grabbed while frantically shopping. I will give a gift certificate as a gift. I find they're perfect for that person who has everything.
