Groupons are great gifts! Who doesn't appreciate a free hour at the spa? My employees love them.

Absolutely! Groupons are GREAT and if you're lucky enough to receive one as a gift, just remember you didn't spend any of your money.

I think that would be tacky

I like the spa ones. I get those for myself all the time

Marco commented on January 2, 2012

I usually by groupons for two so they can take me with them! That's smart gifting

Bell commented on January 2, 2012

groupons were the new thing this year. I can't wait to use mine!

It depends on the service or product.

I think you can make groupon gifts personal. I think they're an upgrade over gift cards.

I've only received a few as gifts and I gotta say, I haven't been disappointed yet. I got one for dinner at Campagnola Trattoria and my favorite was for a 2 hour kayak rental for me and my girlfriend.

What if it's for skydiving and it's for someone that's always wanted to do it? That might be the only exception

If anything, gifts like Groupons and gift cards should only be complementary gifts

Nick commented on December 16, 2011

Not for family members or people that you consider close friends. But hey if you bought someone a gift card last year, I don't see anything wrong with getting a groupon this year.
