Bad idea. As they are still waiting for GC, US citizenship is at least 6 years down the lane

Or three years if the GC us through marriage.

Why is this even an idea you are considering? Dang...

Good way to annoy their waiting. Stay out

If he has still not got his GC, then bad idea. Otherwise very thoughtful idea.

If they are waiting for it then it might look like mocking them!!

Depends on the person. If your intent is positive and they know it, go for it.

Always stick to an amazon gift card
