Not all gift cards are a good deal. Check on expiration dates and such before you buy. Some companies deduct money from the card every month the account is open. Why should you pay up front, and then have them charge the recipient for the privilege of holding your money?
Editor's Note: Also, if you are sending a card to a post office box make sure that gift cards can be sent to one. We ordered a Home Depot Gift Card for a contest winner and they never informed us that it couldn't be sent to a PO Box while we were ordering it.
