Which Gift Cards Suck The Least To Get?

Voting Rules
Vote up the gift cards that you're actually glad to receive.

Let's face it: Most gift cards are a letdown. They're from people who don't know you well enough to get you an actual gift, and by extension, people who don't know what businesses you actually shop at. That's why most gift cards ending up burning a hole in people's wallets - but there are, of course, exceptions.

Which gift cards are you actually excited to unwrap on Christmas or other holidays? Which ones inspire you to go somewhere you can spend it, or at least go online and make some purchases there? Take a look at these businesses, both brick-and-mortar and digital, and vote up the ones you wouldn't mind spending some other people's money at.
