I guess I'm somewhat divided on whether a gift card has meaning to it.
I mean, if it's from some generic restaurant that someone doesn't even know if I like then it's not exactly as meaningful as if they purchased one from say...my favorite store. Having said that, I appreciate any gift that is given to me.
Some people aren't lucky enough to receive anything...so if a gift of any kind is given to me I feel very blessed.
Looking forward to Christmas a little early this year.
