Gifts for friends (tips)

Posted by Lucie Czillingova on

We all know how hard it can be to pick the right gift sometimes. Most of my friends are females, so when one of us has a birthday, the rest go shopping. There is one thing to mention. I hate shopping.

So here we go, stuffed in winter coats and coats, sweating, trying to avoid rushing people, from alley to alley, from rack to rack. It takes a long time until we finally agree on a suitable gift. I find it a big struggle, since when I suggest something, my friends disagree and vice versa. Sometimes I thank God, birthday is only once a year!

During all those shopping sessions, I have learned one thing. In order to choose the right gift, you really need to know that person - what they like, what is their hobby, what do they want/need, what do they miss in their kitchen/living room/bathroom/basement, etc..

Then, when you finally choose the right gift, there is another factor - is it too cheap? Is it cheesy? So if the answer is yes, the never-ending struggle continues and we need to add something else to it, since one thing - even if it's the most adorable gift in the world - is not enough when it's cheap.

You can not be surprised when I say, I feel really relived when we are leaving shopping mall dragging plastic bag with that birthday gift(s) in it.

If you got at this point, you might wonder why am I talking about all this. Well, when I was showering, I had this idea that maybe more people find buying gifts little annoying matter (but then we are happy that someone got us a gift :D). So I decided to sum up the gifts we were buying for my friends, so I make some use of all those shopping session (other than pleasing my friends, since that is the purpose, right..) 

As I mentioned before, my friends are mostly females. So we usually get perfumes, candles, blankets, jewelry, lingerie, tea or make-up. We never miss a CAKE (usually homemade).

Once, we bought a fabric laundry basket, this one was a good one, I think.

To conclude, gifts are only one way of many how to show your loved ones that you care about them. In my opinion, the most important is to be a good company on a day of their birthday! That's what matters the most!
