I don't buy gift cards

I don't buy gift cards anymore. It's a tactic to get the giftee to spend more than what is on the card. It's also easy to forget that you have a balance on a card when you have 5 gift cards to use, and after a period of time, a monthly "service fee" is deducted from the amount. One year I gave gift cards to a couple of friends who never even used them. I had very little money, and to discover a year later that they'd never used the cards really made me think twice about giving gift cards again. Gift cards are pretty, but you can put cash in a pretty card just as well, and no one will forget to spend cash.
