Are you a last minute gift shopper?  If you don’t like to deal with crowded stores and last minute shopping online, a gift card might be a good alternative to a sweater or a book.  Sure, a gift card isn’t as personal as an actual gift, however the recipient may appreciate picking out exactly what they want.
