What did you do with your gift card?

I bought a 175e AirFrance gift card in Decemer 2019.
Obviously, I have to use it before December 2020.
Do you have any suggestion, please?
Base: LUX

Up to now, there is no extension policy for gift card.
Here is the reply from AirFrance:
A ce jour, nous n'avons pas de consigne commerciale particulière concernant les cartes cadeaux émises en décembre 2019. Vous pourrez donc l'utiliser jusqu'au 2 décembre 2020, et pour un voyage jusqu'au 1er décembre 2021. Nous vous souhaitons une agréable fin de journée.
English version by Google Translation:
To date, we have no specific commercial recipient for gift cards issued in December 2019. You can therefore use it until December 2, 2020, and for a trip until December 1, 2021. We wish you a pleasant end by day.

having to use it before the end of the year leaves you ample time to decide.

I bought two gift cards, they were used on one trip that should have taken place over the past two weeks but were cancelled. They are now in a voucher refundable after 12 months (including the 50 EUR bonus). I guess we'll see what happens in the next few months with the aviation industry.

I had used them and now they're re-issued as new vouchers

[edit]
Might be good to know that my flights were cancelled by KL first, before they got re-issued. Also, when I called the PSL, the agent was a bit surprised how the payment structure to my ticket was, as I had used 2 vouchers and paid a bit of money on top of that (for 2 people). It seemed it was not quite straight fwd for the agent to re-issue as a voucher (either system, policy or both), but my guess is the PSL agent went the 'extra mile'

Buy a flight, departing from LUX.

Presumably this is what you had in mind when you bought yourself a "gift card"?

(Given that the voucher already has a validity of 12 months, enabling you to buy flights for as late as the end of 2021, I don't see why you think they would extend the validity of the voucher. )

I bought that for my planned biz trip.
But now the plan had been cancelled...

Maybe I will wait for future notice or my Xmas trip...
