Here are tips for making gift cards more personal:

Instead of going for the standard "superstore" gift card, try to find a specialty gift card that reflects the type of things that the recipient is most interested in.

Try to find out about their favorite store or activity. Look online for niche specialty stores. Or order a gift card from an online store that will allow you to customize the gift card, including the recipient's name and even a special message.

If the gift card still feels impersonal, attach something homemade: a small photo gift that you whip up from snapfish or SeeHere or half a dozen cookies. Viola! You're done.
