The Good Idea/Bad Idea Gift Guide

As you may or may not be aware, the holidays are approaching. And since I am nothing if not helpful, I have decided to offer a series of posts one what to and what not to give as gifts. I’d say I’ll do one a day until Christmas, but we both know I’d be lying. First up, the last resort for when you have no idea what to give: gift cards!

Good Idea:
Really, the best thing here is to figure out where your recipient actually shops, and get a card from there. But, if you don’t know or can’t be bothered to care, you can’t go wrong with amazon. They can get pretty much anything and they don’t have to leave the house.

Bad Idea:
A grocery store gift card:

The gift that says, “I don’t think you have enough money for food.
“I’d give you cash, but I’m afraid you would spend it on drugs.”
