My Top Ten Reasons For Giving Cash As A Gift
#10 - You will not agonize over if the recipient will like your gift.
#9 - That funny holiday sweater will not come back to you via some re-gifting scheme.
#8 - You will not waste your time guessing what the recipient wants.
#7 - You avoid those crazy holiday shoppers.
#6 - Since you didn't buy anything, you don't have to keep receipts for the inevitable return that is bound to happen.
#5 - You will not have to endure the fake smile from the recipient that really means they hate your gift.
#4 - When you put one dollar in a gift card it sends a strong message.
#3 - Who is gonna ask you to "return" cash?
#2 - Giving cash can make you appear extremely beneficent and magnanimous.
#1 - Giving cash is just easier.
Author's Note: I still enjoy watching the grandchildren having more fun with the empty box that the expensive toy came in rather than the toy itself. Hint - maybe an empty box holds more secrets then what meets the eye.
