Bottom line: if you can't figure out something to buy someone, you're silly if you think a gift card is some how better than just giving cash.
They are more inconvenient and they are rarely fully used. Merchants push them because--surprise, surprise--they know that any card not redeemed is pure profit.
If you really care about someone, give them something they can really use.
Or give them cash--which is something they can really use.
Gift cards are the worst of both worlds. Don't buy the hype.
And yes, I accept PayPal.
