Do you still give gifts or just give cash?

Last Christmas season, my aunt gives me a cash rather than a gift. She choose to give me cash for me to buy what I like. She prefer to give cash for a reason that she doesn't what I want to receive for a gift.

Hi irefed, For me, It is always depend on the situation on whether to give a person a present or simply just go for cash. For birthday party, I might simply just give a cash (in redpacket) especially for elderly people. I really have no idea what to buy for them as a present. I guess cash is the best gift for them. But for kids's birthday party, I might consider get them a present like toys,stationeries,storybooks.Try to buy them something that might be useful in their life. For certain occasions like Christmas,valentine Day - I might go for a present. I used to buy present for my husband during Christmas and Valentine Day ,that was before we got married. After we got married, I never give him any present. Once a while, when I am travelling abroad, I will still buy him something as a present. I just believe that I can simply get a present for my husband anytime I want without looking at the occasion.

Sorry but I prefer cash. Firstly, I am not a person who likes to think of buying a present. Secondly, I don't like to receive a gift that I don't like, or just useless. So why don't just give cash? Well, if I really know that person, and I know what he/she wants, or likes, or needs, then maybe send gifts is a good idea. Happy myLotting=]

Hi, irefed I usually give gifts in kind. But when it comes to my godsons, I just give cash because I really have difficulty looking for gifts for them. I am one of those that are very picky when choosing a gift and the ones I like are usually expensive. Plus, I am not very up to date with new toys. So I just give them money and tell them to buy anything they like. Hey, it's almost christmas. Time for gift giving again. Cheers!
