    Yup, that sounds about right. I just keep them and don't spend them to terrorize him. It's more fun that way, and makes for better thread conversation!
    ...it's been a long time.

    Re: Gift Time.... Do You Like Gift Cards, Cash, Or Hints

    I like to receive gifts that I can return....don't buy me some clearance aisle piece of crap, because I'll know right away.

    I like gift cards and cash. Or allow me to circle things in the Sephora catalog. That works too.

    One of my favorite gifts was an entire CD case full of CDs burned especially for me. My sister's husband never buys a CD (or borrows one) without burning a copy for me. It's the sweetest thing!!!

    I have a PF Chang's gift card that I've had FOREVER that I'm using tonight. Finally. I like PF Chang's okay, but there are so many better Chinese places.

    My in-laws are taking us out to the freaking Olive Garden on Saturday night for dinner with my husband's grandparents. Thankfully, they're old so they eat dinner at 5 p.m., and it doesn't interfere with my plans for the evening. I hate Olive Garden.

    ^Olive Garden does suck big time. I am Italian, and I always tell my Mexican friends that Olive Garden to me, is like Taco Bell for them. They get it right away!

    Have you guys heard about some gift cards that actually depreciate over time? If you don't use them in X amount of time, the value will quickly diminish. Doesn't that suck?

    That's hilarious!! I say thing's like "PF Chang's is the Olive Garden of Chinese food." And I call Applebee's Crapplebees. And Chevy's is the "Mexican Olive Garden." There are more......I'm not a fan of chain restaurants.

    I read somewhere that like 3 billion dollars worth of gift card go to waste every year. That is such a terrible tragedy- why isn;t Sally Struthers on TV at night trying to stop this inhumane and awful thing from happening?

    "You too can save a gift card"

    Sheesh, send them to me, I will find a use for them!

    That reminds me, for graduation last year, my brother got me a $200 gift card to Pier 1. WTF was I gonna do with that? I bought candles and then lost the card. Talk about not knowing your audience.....

    Re: Gift Time.... Do You Like Gift Cards, Cash, Or Hints

    You coulda bought furniture.

    Anyway, I like gift cards, but I like getting something I really want better. If the choice is between an impersonal gift like candles or frames, or something that shows a complete lack of understanding me, such as makeup, jewelry or purses, I'll take a gift card any day.

    Seriously, what posessed my brother to think I'd want a purple leather purse? Purple I get, but leather? with fringe? a purse? me? And my childhood friends who have known me since I was little, getting me makeup? Hello? Like I wear any most of the time? how long have they known me? and I'm an adult who doesn't need sparkly crap?

    At least my boyfriend, though he didn't pick up on my hints of wanting a classic Nintendo, showed some thought of me when he bought my Christmas gift. Got me an awesome Disney castle tree-topper.

    But seriously, what was with the rest of my family? Thank god for gift cards, most of them have learned to use them. Kohl's, Target, Best Buy, hell, even Ralph's! Much preferred to an irrelevant gift.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    ^ I agree! I love to keep thoughtful gifts forever! It is so nice to get something you really wanted from someone special to you.
