Is it insensitive to give giftcards or cash for a present?
So every holiday I give everyone I would normally give gifts to an ultimatum: tell me what you want for the holidays/birthday or I'm getting you an amazon giftcard. It's a very simple thing I live by. I'm a HORRIBLE shopper for other people so I figure that it's the best way for me to get them what they want or have them get what they want. But every year everyone always says "You know what you should buy me." I don't.
So now I wonder; is it insensitive of me to give giftcards/cash for a present? I know that people say it is, but to be honest, I myself would LOVE cash or giftcards. Nothing says you love me more than helping pay off student loans. And I'd rather give someone cash to buy what they want than buy them something they don't want and make them return it or just keep a crappy gift.
So, is it?
