It is giftcard mania at my in-laws. At Christmastime just last year we received 12 cards. All had 20 or below on them and a few of them were fromt he same store so we combined them and got things we needed for the house. It is a nice gesture for sure, especially when certain people KNOW you like a certain store but aren't sure just exactly what you want or need. There were a few we didn't really like and we forwarded those to a local charity in the person who gave it to us and our names of course. Have had people tell me it is tacky, my response is always the same, if it isnt going to get used why nto give it to people who can use it.
