Christmas Shopping Gone Wild (Plus One Gift She Wouldn't Expect)
'Tis the season to be jolly. 'Tis the season for cheer. 'Tis also the season to steal presents from indecisive fellow-shoppers' carts without any fear. This was my story a few weeks ago, when my shopping cart got "emptied" by another shopper because I couldn't make up my mind. I had started my Christmas shopping at an online store, where I found the perfect gift for my friend. For a split-second, just a split-second, I hesitated on "proceeding to checkout" and when I refreshed a few moments later, my item was gone from my cart! Shopping does get a little wild this time of the year but that's Ok, because somehow, I got a good feeling from it. It felt good knowing someone had snatched a gift from my cart to purchase it for someone else! In a weird way, I was a Secret Santa. Very nuanced, but a Secret nonetheless. And for that opportunity, I'd allow 15 more cart-thefts from fellow shoppers but no more- all in the spirit of Christmas.
If you haven't started shopping, clearly you like to live on the edge. Lol, I'm kidding. To help you along, below are some PGI-selected gift ideas! "Number 6" on the list labeled "For Her" would be something she would never expect. Of course, it goes both ways and it should equally be on the "For Him" list but we ran out of space *Shrug*
That said, I'd really like to hand Ed a leather-bound folder containing "Number 6", I'm a little tired of buying sweaters and trending gadgets. Just a little. I know it's too late now to get"Number 6", I should have told you earlier, I know, but there's always next Christmas!
As for me, all I want for Christmas is to draw closer to the birthday-boy and some snow! Let the elements align!
Wouldn't it be great handing "Number 6" to a someone-especially someone who really needs it?! What's on your Christmas list?
