What's the best grind for a gift?

SO Here is the question. When you are buying coffee for a friend should you send them whole beans, Coarse ground, Espresso or what? I know the answer is whole beans but I have sent whole bean coffee to friends who don't have grinders and they never get around to grinding it. So it is a lost gift!
Does sending ground beans really lose that much flavor?
