The weather outside might be frightful but it does not compare to stress that is Christmas shopping. Here is a way to make you a prime gift giver, without having to climbing over crowds in the mall.
You´ll Remember The Giver
Was it aunt Magda or grandma Gretle that gave you that ridicously expensive vase? Those Thank You notes will not write themselves… maybe you bought it yourself. The person opening the door to your Narnia, joining you or not, will never be forgotten as the source off your great adventure.
They Last Forever
While we´re on the subject, the day that vase falls to the ground splittering into a million pieces will suck. Memories don´t break. Seeing Beyonce live or jumping out of a plane will mean more to you than an object will and even better it will upgrade you. #Beyoncereference
This is not another unoriginal scarf that has been picked up for 9,99 at Macys out of a lack of imagination. This can require some thought. You can´t give a wine tasting to an AA member or a front row One Direction ticket to a claustrophobic person. Some knowledge about the person is required. It can be superpersonal, like a scavanger hunt through your favorite places where at every spot you find a handwritten clue to the next one or doing that picnic together that you`ve always talked about. The receiver will feel special that an effort has been made.
Don´t Take Up Space
Ever gotten a human sized teddy bear taking up your whole apartment? Unless that teddy bear is made of chocolate or contain Channing Tatum we are not interested. (Imagining a chocolate teddy bear filled with hunk*)
You don´t have to wrap them
That teddy bear is full of downsides, imagine wrapping that thing. An easy, classy envelope is the way to go. And if you love the art of packaging you can still put it in a huge box and fill it with marshmellows. A little bit more suprising and a lot more delicous.
If this did not convince you and you still head out into the consumers´ frenzy: may Santa bless you.
