Truthful Tuesday

When it comes to giving money, do you view it as a thoughtful gift, or as a sign that the giver didn’t care enough to think about a “real” gift?

My answer:

When it comes to “money gifts” I think it depends on who it is from and what occasion. There are definitely people one would like to buy for but have no idea what would be a suitable gift. That being said, I don’t think all gifts have to be what someone wants. A gift is a gesture. I worked with someone once who during Secret Santa time told everyone, “Do not buy me candles or any sort of knick-knack. I don’t want candy or food either.” She told people that scratch-offs were good.

I think giving money is okay if you know the person receiving it wants to spend it on something special. To just always give money,…well why bother?

As far as gift cards go, again depends on who and what for. Gift cards are a great way to not feel like you are wasting money on something someone doesn’t want anyhow. Well, in this day and age, people just buy whatever they want whenever they want so if they don’t want something nice, then that is their issue, not yours.

As far as I go, when I get gift cards I use them and when I get money I try to find something that I really wanted but didn’t want to just pay outright for.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly. It depends on the situation and the gift recipient. I am always happy with cash and gift cards. I love being able to search for something special, that is perfect for me, and indulging in a little splurge that I wouldn’t normally do. 😉
