I hope everyone received from Santa what they wanted. Christmas is over, and I'm sure there were some engagments set. Now it's time to focus on the comming year. I'm re-thinking the gift card gifts for the comming year. According to the National Retail Federation's 2010 Gift Card Consumer Intentions and Actions survey, conducted by BIGresearch, total gift card spending is expected to reach a jaw-dropping $24.78 billion. In 2007, Consumer Reports noted that 27 percent of gift cards from the previous year were still unused, which means it was almost certain that they would never be used.
