It's always nice to get a golf-related present for your birthday or some occasion, but would you rather get a gift card so you can buy the item of your choice or risk your wife or friend getting a club that you may have to return?

what's your preference?

Lots of people think that the idea of a gift card is a easy way out or something like that....I personally like gift cards, and I always give them to people for occasions. I would rather have someone be able to get something that i know that they want, instead of them opening a gift and feeling obligated to pretend they like it in front of you, when they are actually thinking what they are going to be returning if for. :thumbsup:

Man I got a 40th birthday coming up next month along with Father's day...I want all the gift cards I can muster...LOL!!!

I am salivating on some new NIKE golf clubs.....so I need all the help I can get...LOL!!!!

Some people think gift cards are impersonal, I beg to differ. You still have to go buy it along with a card!!!! I think gift cards are the way 2 go....my boys love them...and they are 10 and 8!!!!!

Gift card for me also

No question. I have very specific items I want. Nothing impersonal about them. Now if it was a gift card from Macy's, that would show my friend or wife doesn't know me too well. :laugh:

but do people ask you what you want and you give them a specific list then? Naming clubs and all that? or do you just say "clubs" and let them figure it out?

Well, i think that if you want something specific, and tell a person, i think thats really rude. But, if the situation is that your at a store and teh person says, "Pick Anything" thats when you can be specific on what you want. Ya know what i mean?

I like getting gift cards too. Gives you the chance to get something that you actually want versus getting something they "think" you want and then you having to take it back.

Haha, of course, gift cards is a great way of stores making profits i think. All they need to do is make some cards, and give out their merchandise. ( i think its especially great for restaurants)

Oh, I'm with everyone else here - gift cards are the way to go. Who wants to have to try to return bad golf clubs or something? It is a much better choice than... for example... cutesy animal head golf club covers that Aunt Lydia bought for you. (That happened to me once - argh!)

Guess the majority likes gift cards, I think it is also good coz it also limits your budget to be on the specific amount. However, it must also be considered where to get that gift card... suggest to be the store where the receiver usually likes buying golf items.

I would prefer a gift card. You see, my family doesn't really know anything about golf, so if they bought me something, I would most likely have it already or wouldn't need it.

Gift Card, most defiently, this assures you that you get what you want instead of trusting someone to buy you something and they might not get it right.

Although I really don't mind either, I would prefer a gift card. I like being able to walk into the pro shop, looking around, and deciding on something I really need.

It is because most can not be bothered to get something so they get them a gift card but its like getting money i spose, you can spend it on whatever you want as oppose to someone restricting you to something you may not even want or need.
