Family often ask me what I would like for Christmas...or my birthday.
I am at the age of not needing anymore nick knacks.
My wife will tell them a gift card is best.
And, I will agree. But then I get one from some great new diner that I have never heard of an hour away.
I go look for it and can't find it or it has CLOSED!
I feel gift cards are great, but when giving one, make it from a place where the recipient will use it.
