Gift Giving

Do you enjoy shopping for ? I do. I love gift giving occasions, because I love picking out just the right item for someone.

I put a lot of time and effort into thinking about what I want to buy, how to wrap it, and making sure the person receiving the gift feels special.

This isn't always easy to do, since some people are more difficult to shop for than others, but I try to think of it as a challenge. If I can find something that gets a smile from someone who is hard to buy for, I feel like I accomplished something.

I really get into presentation as well, especially when the can be part of the gift. A housewarming gift can be wrapped in pretty hand towels instead of wrapping paper, for example. A new sewing pattern can be wrapped in nice fabric.

Sometimes, wrapping the gift can be as much fun as picking it out.

Well, after decades of gift giving, I am kind of pooped. I go for the gift card whenever I can these days.

I love gift buying and giving, but I'm afraid my wrapping is of a much more basic nature.

I never quite saw it that way but you're right. My mother would so appreciate the wrapping of gifts she receives!

I love to shop for gifts especially when Christmas is fast approaching I usually start shopping months earlier.

I hear ya, Gem. There are times when it can wear you out.

Val, basic is fine too. I just like to creative if I can. It's not always possible.

My mom is the same way, Truffle.

The only problem I have with shopping early, Cheri, is that I want to give them all their gifts early. I have to try to restrain myself!
