Are gift cards a bad gift for kids?
Buying birthday gifts for my kids' friends and classmates is the bane of my existence. We get invited to a lot of parties and I spend way to much time in stores picking out gifts for kids I barely know. So now I've resorted to the gift card. Yes, it costs more money because you can't 'hide" how much you've spent. But my time is more valuable. Still, do you think it's tacky to give a 10-year-old a $25 gift card? I usually choose a gaming or sports store. Sometimes Target.
