I support all efforts to spread the word about Bitcoin and gifting someone some coins is great.

But giving someone a paper wallet for them to redeem is probably THE worst introduction to Bitcoin I can think of.

Having to go through this complicated procedure to spend them is going to put a lot of people off from the start.

hmmm, i'm not sure my family would be interested. they'd probably be worried that i pissed away a bunch of money on bitcoins
Until they found out the value was 4X in one year.  Then they'd be laughing about how silly they were the previous year for laughing.

The response I got when I gave one BTC to my nephew last year when the prices was $45/BTC my sister said "thanks for the card, we'll have to check out this Bitcoin thing". Kinda like...thanks for the card, don't really care about your little nerd hobby...

Then I will be able to join them this year and tell my nephew...so have you spent your Bitcoin yet (I know from the address he has not). No? You do realize it's worth over $200 right?

At that point there may be some scrambling to find that card along with many questions on where to spend it.
