My dks started loving gift cards at about the age of 12. Now they will actually put them on their birthday/Christmas lists. They will even list the stores, restaurants or movie theaters they like. This gives them "money" to go shopping with and they have a blast. My ds2 always wants to spend his right away but ds1 saves his until he thinks about what it is he truly wants. Dd can go either way. They now even have cool tins you can buy to put the gift cards in to make them look special.
