That’s the million dollar question this time of year, isn’t it? I can hardly talk to my family without being bombarded by queries of how they can buy my continuing love for the next 364 days.
It’s tough for me to just ask for something for Christmas these days. I’m older, working, and have my own place. I buy the low to moderate expense items that I want. Yes, there are still lots of things I want or need, like a new phone, iPod, or even a new TV stand. But I find it difficult to ask someone to buy things like this for me, because I have to live with their choice, rather than my own. Thus the invention of the gift card, I suppose.
But many people are uncomfortable giving close friends and relatives gift cards, preferring to endeavor to find a gift perfectly suited and carefully chosen, to show the recipient the thought and consideration they have for them. Then some last-minute stress induced frustration kicks in and you go buy a gift card anyway.
So, ShufflingDead readers, make it easy on your loved ones. Tell us what you want for Christmas. I can in no way promise to convey the message to your desired audience, but Christmas is about wishes or something, right?
