Why Gift Cards For Everyone Are Not Lame Christmas Gifts

Gift Card

People (and by people I mean my family) always make fun of me for giving mostly gift cards during the holidays. It’s like I cheated or something, not knowing what they wanted at that particular moment in time. And you know what? I think I’m okay with that. And here’s why.

Every day, we buy so much stuff. I’m not condemning our system, I love capitalism. It’s the only system where people can strive to be better and have more. It’s great.

But I can barely keep up with my own junk acquisition, so how can I be expected to keep up with yours? Do you keep notes on what stuff your sister buys? Your mom? Your second cousin twice-removed that you have to get the gift for this year?

Of course not! That’s insane!

So…gift cards. This way, you NEVER have the, “Oh, ANOTHER nose trimmer! I love it.” moments. Because you know that they’re thinking, “Holy crap, I must have a jungle hanging out of my nose!” It’s just that I didn’t remember I had already given you one, or didn’t know someone else had also gotten you one. Okay, really, trim that crap, already.

Until we institute mandatory Gift Registries for every occasion, I’m going to continue to give gift cards, so you can get what you want, when you want it, and not have to figure out who you can regift a bunch of crappy stuff to.

Besides, you can amass a bunch of gift cards and get some really cool, expensive stuff you don’t have to pay for!

I guess I’ve taken any surprise out of Christmas for my family and friends with this post. Sorry everyone.
