I am always on the lookout for unique gifts for my friends and family. I am not a fan of gift cards because most of the time I find them to be very impersonal and it's as if you are saying, "I didn't want to take the time to find something you really like so here's a gift card, find something yourself." I know that's really not always the case because I do enjoy getting a gift card from time to time but not all of the time. My mother in law got us a gift card to our favorite restaurant for Christmas and that was awesome because we LOVE to eat there and she also bought me one to my favorite clothing store as well. This was ok with me because she took the time to get the gift cards to places that we really like but sometimes I think we overuse gift cards and it's unfortunate because there are places like Zazzle where you can get personalized gifts for everybody you need to buy for!!!
