It’s The Thought That Counts…Outdated Gifts YOU Shouldn’t Give

4.  Cash

If your momma gave you any ounce of home training, she probably told you that giving cash to anyone who isn’t a close family member is impolite.  I don’t know what the origin of this etiquette rule is, but I do know that the gift of cash comes across as lazy.  You basically should just write in the card, “We’re close and all but I have no idea what you need for or what might amuse you.”  The ATM shouldn’t be your one stop shop for gifts for loved ones.  It’s impersonal and a blatant flag of commercialism.  You could at least fake some affection or invest some thought into a nice gift card.
