What's most important when receiving a gift and be honest please. Do you look at the price tag or is it the thought that counts? I think its the thought that counts ie I would rather someone made me a card then bought me one as it more personal and more effort went into it. Would you prefer to open a jewellery box or a handmade personalised pair of socks. My nan would open a card and if it didnt have money in she would not read it :-o luckily this did not rub off on me.
