It has been argued that holiday giving destroys value due to mismatching gifts.[9] The most efficient way to keep value in gifting would be to give cash; however, this is socially acceptable only within limits. Gift cards, to a degree, may overcome this problem but have certain pitfalls. Some feel that the absence of the thought of selecting a specific gift makes a gift card a worse choice than a poorly executed but individual gift.[10] New products in the gift card industry are evolving to tackle this "impersonal" pitfall of gift cards. New services launched by some service providers allows for customization and personalization of gift cards.[11]
That's nice. A gift card makes a much nicer present than cold hard cash, doesn't it? Er, no, not really. You may not like giving cash as a Christmas present, but it's a much better way to give than purchasing a gift card. Cash is less risky, more flexible and guarantees the person you're giving to will be able to spend the amount you're giving – even if their favourite store goes under.
Free baby sleeping box in England. The Baby Box Co is giving families with newborns in England a free baby box similar to the Scottish one above (without the extra freebies), by watching educational videos. You take a 20-minute online course on baby and child health, then do a quiz. The baby box acts as a Moses basket and comes with foam mattress, cover and sheet. You need to apply before your baby is six months old, and can pick up from 150 collection points (or pay £6 for delivery).
Monkey Music. You can get a free one-class trial of its music classes, which are aimed at tots from three months to four years and involve singing and percussion instruments. It runs at over 50 locations across England, Wales and Scotland. Just find your local class, register and hit the 'first class free' button when you add the class to your basket. 
If your baby is small enough to sit on your lap while watching the film, they can go for free to screenings with a U, PG or 12A certificate. However, it does say it's at the manager's discretion. Odeon also runs 'Odeon Newbies' – special film screenings that have brighter lights and lower volume especially for parents and guardians with new babies. Adults pay for a usual ticket and under twos go free.
A bit of background - we're not in the best financial position at the minute (but I appreciate there are thousands is worse situations so I should be grateful). Between me and DH, we have approx £17000 of debt that we are working at paying off. We are making just-over the minimum payments and after a big wake up call, we have cut the credit cards up so they cannot be used so we cant add to the debt.

With strict budgeting and spending cuts, we manage to pay our bills each month and we are left with approx £50 per week for a food shop/household items and 'disposable' income. It isnt easy, but manageable. We have no savings because savings were put towards the debt (which reached 30k at one point). Our families dont know the extent of the debt, they just know we arent very flush.

Gift cards are divided into "open loop" or "network" cards and "closed loop" cards. The former are issued by banks or credit card companies and can be redeemed by different establishments, the latter by a specific store or restaurant and can be only redeemed by the issuing provider. The latter, however, tend to have fewer problems with card value decay and fees.[8] In either case the giver would buy the gift card (and may have to pay an additional purchase or activation fee), and the recipient of the card would use the value of the card at a later transaction. A third form is the "hybrid closed loop" card where the issuer has bundled a number of closed loop cards; an example is free gift cards for a specific mall.
