"Christmas cards sent and shopping is all done! You?"


          

I only get gifts for the kids and they only get gift cards. So, my day was easy and my burden is light. DONE!

you know how it is
i had to be strategic with my cards
so i had to wait to order more
before i sent them to the aunts
because if one got one
before the other
it would have been my @ss!

anyway
all gifts have been purchased
i need to get my brother something
else i just haven't decided what

UGH
i just realized that i didn't get my nephew anything
i do this every year
shoot
he should be easy though
he is 7

I hated relatives that gave gift cards - actually preferred the ones that got me nothing than the ones who'd clearly regarded me as an afterthought.

Isn't the point of buying a present that you take the time to consider someone else's life?

Might as well just give them banknotes. Nasty.

They love acting like they are using a credit card -- enjoying their shopping experience and picking out what they want.

So, you do your family and I'll do mine.

mom said she was gonna give her a gift card, and the girl was lobbying hard for cash. Mom said "what's the difference" and my first thought was "can't buy weed with a pre-paid Visa"

Can't spend it at the local Mom & Pop.

Can't do anything but what Mama prescribed. The gift card sellers hate your freedom, kids. Blow them up.

Think back to being a kid... you'd rather have a bit of paper that forces you to shop in a certain store... or something awesome to unwrap and play with?

If you can't find the time/commitment to buy proper presents, give cash so they can get whatever they want. I aaallllways had a gift card that I'd have to sell to my parents (i.e. a shop I didn't want anything to do with) or one that I'd find 6 months after the fact that had expired because I didn't need anything from that particular shop in time.

Neither are replacements for actually spending some time and buying an appropriate present though. It's Christmas, not Mammonfest. My family would side-eye me to death if I turned up with 10 minutes worth of gift cards for everyone. Really shows LOVE!
