  • Would you ever give someone a gift card?

    • Only as a last minute back-up gift, if I didn't have time to find something better.
    • Only if I knew he/she really wanted one.
    • Sure. If I get one for a store I don't like, I'll pass it along to someone else.
    • I might, if I didn't know the person well, but real presents are more fun.

    • No, because they'll see the amount and feel weird if they spent less.
  • How do you feel about putting a cheap thing in a box from a fancy store?

    • A box is just a box. It's not like I'm promising the gift came from there.
    • I'd try to avoid it, because the person might realize the truth and feel let down.
    • I'd probably do it. And if the person thinks I spent a lot on their gift, that's cool.
    • I might put a toy ring in a jewelry store box, but only to be funny.
    • That's mean and misleading.
    • I'd probably decorate the box to cover up the store's logo, so it wouldn't be a problem.
  • Do you think it's okay to give old or used stuff as a present?

    • Yes, if it's something strange. I like surprising people.
    • Depends. If it's vintage, maybe. If it's just old, that's inconsiderate.
    • I think it's okay, if you personalize it somehow or explain why you chose it.
    • As long as the recipient can't tell it was used, who cares?
    • If you used it already, that's no good. If you unwrapped it, but didn't use it, that's fine.
    • I don't care if something's old or not. When I find the perfect gift, I just know.

    • Maybe, if the person collects cool pens, and I found a neat one.
    • Sure, if I got one from someone else and didn't want it.
    • I might give someone a nice drawing pen and a sketchbook.
    • Maybe, if it's silver or something, and seems really special.
    • That sounds kinda cheap, even for me. But, hey, why not?
    • Yes, if it's the kind where the person gets naked when you hold it upside down.
  • How do you feel about giving edible gifts?

    • Peanut butter? Bad gift. Gourmet chocolate? Good gift.
