Gift Cards Posted on Wednesday, 2007-November-28 by Elle Here is an interesting take on buying gift cards for holiday gifts.
One thought on “Gift Cards”
I guess that’s one way to look at it.
I give gift cards because people’s wish lists are so freaking ridiculous I can only afford to partially fund their heart’s desires. People give me gift cards because I don’t like to travel with cash or carry stuff on the plane. Someday we’ll have Christmas at home like normal people.
I took an entire seminar on gift-giving this semester. Hundreds of pages on gift-giving. Political, relational, and definitely not freely altruistic.
Your bah humbug is contagious. Resistance is futile!
