And I started thinking in terms of giving something that will bring a happy memory rather something that needs to be dusted.

I am a big believer in this! I'd rather give a nice time out with no worries then another dust magnet.

The other nice thing is when you can't afford the whole item wanted, but can help offset the cost with a gift card. When I bought my last Coach purse I had several gift cards from family that I had saved to help pay for it. I'd rather have the $25 or $50 towards that purchase in the future then $25 of bath stuff I would never use.
