I'm not really sure if people would consider giving cash as a gift, but I don't see anything wrong with it. However, some people think that it's a gift that's not well-thought of. If you ask me, I really don't mind giving or receiving cash, although there was a time when the recipient seems to be complaining that I gave an amount that was below her standards. I was the one who picked her name on the exchange gift list. We were still both in high school that time, so she shouldn't be so picky since we were not working yet that time. So anyway, back to the topic. Have you ever given or received cash as a gift? If not, will you ever try giving cash as a gift or you prefer to actually give a certain item?
