I love gift cards--giving them and getting them. But I want to know what the person used the gift card for, especially if it is a Barnes and Noble or Borders gift card. It always makes me think.
Andrew used his Borders gift card to buy a book on physics and promptly plopped down to enjoy it. It is a book I wouldn't have thought to get him. Borders should have a gift registry like Penney's and Target does.
