ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Maggie. These are gift cards. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. Merry Christmas! I hope you have a good holiday season. Here is my dilemma. I had a little argument with some friends the other night. We were talking about Christmas presents (we exchange every year). Often times, either of us must return the gift we received because it is the wrong size or style. I suggested we all give each other gift cards at our favorite stores for Christmas. That way no one has to give anything back, and everyone can definitely get something they like because they choose to. You would have thought I was suggesting you get each other dirty. They didn’t like the idea. They said it was not very creative. I said it might not be creative, but it shows that we really want to make sure we’re happy with our freebies. They said a gift card is not appropriate. So what do you think? Are gift cards good Christmas presents? Or is it “inappropriate?” ” Thank you I like !

Well I think gift cards are great Christmas gifts. I’m with Maggie. That way, you always get something you love, and you know the thought was there because the person who gave it wants to make sure you’re happy.

So what do you think? Are gift cards a good Christmas present or not so much? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
