There's a common conception about the gift card: that it's as good as money, and the recipient can use it to get whatever they want.
But here's the thing. A gift card is not as good as cash. If it were, why not just throw a crisp $50 bill in an envelope and hand it over?
No, my friends. A gift card is better than cash. Because cash is for getting what you need! A gift card if for getting something you truly want.
