How many times have you heard someone say: "Christmas isn't about the gifts."? Well, of course it's not ALL about the gifts, but it is a little about the gifts, right? Not only is it very excited to receive one, it feels good to give them as well.
Many people get stressed out about buying gifts this time of the year. The Boyfriend and I are definitely not those people. We basically just tell each other what we want, and that's that. I would rather someone spend their hard earned money on something they know I want, than having that awkward situation after opening an unwanted present and forcing the fake enthusiasm.
I guess a surprise gift can also be nice, but only if you know the person really really well, and you know they'll be honest with you if they don't like it. I would only do that with my family to be honest.
Luckily I'm finished with my Christmas shopping for this year, because it can be quite tiring, even for a shopoholic like myself. Have you done all your shopping? Anyway, if you were thinking about getting me something (*wink wink), you can click here for some ideas.
One week to go until Christmas! 10... 9... 8... 7...
