Sort of, I don't like giving gift cards as a "main gift" already, and now that I know she went out if her way to get me something. Worst case I'll get a few gift cards to some of her favorite places, that's sort of personal I think? Maybe?
I just get weirded out by the idea of like "Merry Christmas, here is a store card wherein I spent exactly $200 and 3 minutes on you, hoping you didn't spend too much more or less, thanks for the gift you thoughtfully planned out months ago" Maybe. Blargh. People are hard!
Well, here's what I'd do, not to plug this but i work for a small company right now (www.ournameismud.com
) you could buy her something novel and thoughtful like a mug or from any site that says you thought and cared, but not spend that much, and than throw the basically-cash gift cards inside as a "now here's something you can really use"
just my two scents, bought my gf a buncha jewlery this year that i'm gonna put in a "I <3 Your Ass" mug this year, boyfriend of the year award - incoming.
after reading what i just wrote, maybe take this with a grain of salt, lmao.
