Yes, you can give a gift card without looking lazy or impersonal, says Lizzie Post, coauthor of Emily Post's Etiquette, 18th edition.The secret, she explains, is to think about what your friend has going on in her life at that moment. Is she remodeling her bathroom? Get her a gift card for a home-improvement or home-goods store.

Tell her why you picked that specific store ("I know you're training for the marathon and thought you could use some new tunes to get you through those long runs!"). Never apologize or make excuses such as "I didn't have time to pick out a real gift since I've been so slammed at work."

(Natural News) Disarming American citizens has never been easier, at least in Los Angeles, California, where hundreds of local residents recently lined up to hand over their firearms in exchange for Target gift cards.According to reports, many of the participants in L.A.’s annual gun buyback program waited in long lines like trained zombies for the opportunity to give up their guns to officers from the Los Angeles Police Department (L.A.P.D.). Handguns, rifles, and so-called “assault” weapons were all included among the contributions.For each rifle and handgun that was handed over, individuals received a Target gift card in the amount of $100. For each assault weapon, the reward was $200, even if the weapon in question was worth far more on the market.The event was praised as a positive step in removing dangerous weapons from L.A. streets, even though every firearm handed over was likely not owned by a criminal.
