Thursday Thoughts: Gift Giving

As usual, I hear everyone complain that gift giving is impersonal, if you get a gift card or money! What the Hell? Just be happy that someone thought of you and gave your ungrateful ass something! I really hate the Holidays lately because majority of people are celebrating it for the wrong reasons.  Now its just another day where people have the reason to bitch, bitch and more bitch.

Here's my two cents on gift giving...MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! I am the worst gift-er giver ever. Okay, let me take that back. I am the best gift giver, when I DO give a gift. But I suck on giving a gift on my free will. Understand? No, okay. So in a non-selfish way, I just don't think of giving a gift to someone unless there are reasons to. I don't stop and think to myself and say "Who should I give a gift to, today"?

I'm gonna be really REAL with you right now, even though I am really truthful and honest as often as I possibly can (which gets me in trouble sometimes).  Like, don't ask if you can't handle Here are the only time I go out of my way and get something for you. *clears throat...wait for it. 

I only give a gift when me or my kids are invited to a birthday party, bridal/baby shower, and CHRISTMAS. If you are under 18 yrs old, majority of the time you will get $10-$20 with a card. Or you will get something that you asked for or something related to the theme of your birthday party.  i.e. If I see a elmo will most likely see a Elmo character toy. So Beware what you send me. lol.

If you are over 18 yrs old, you will get $20+ or a giftcard. with a card. It depends on how much I like you. Like, if you are my sister, I will give you more than $20 are not just a person to me. Best friends!! Duh! Majority of the time, I take out my sisters to lunch or dinner on their birthdays, usually before or after since they are so incredibly busy all the time. *tear.  We usually go shopping somewhere and they would see something and I will get them something.

One time, my oldest sister saw a Chi hair straightener and oh before I go on, this is like month or 2 before her birthday. I got it for her. And near the register, I always tell them "So this is for your birthday, just in case I".

This other time, because we were talking/joking about it. I gave a friend at the time a rabbit vibrator for her birthday. Yes, the one you saw and heard about in 'Sex in the City'. I don't know if she use or still has it but at the was something me and another person pitched in to get for her. Its more of a gag gift, maybe a neccessity? lol. But if she uses it, bonus! I personally do not own any such technology so that was my very first and last purchase. EVER. Okay, over share.

In semi-rare occasions, I do give gifts like I stated above. BUT I usually give you money or gift cards. Why? Because I rather you pick out the thing(s) you want, rather than me indecisively choose something you don't need or already have. If you are disappointed, that's on you. Why? because I really thought of you at the time of when I had to get in the car and drive to the ATM and Hallmark (or CVS, Walgreens, or Target) to give you a gift that I have a choice to give or not to give. I really do think of your benefit on the gift I give you. Its not impersonal. I give it a lot of thought and thought that this route works for the best.

Well, I don't know when my next post will be but if after Christmas,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!



  1. Hahaha, this entire post totally just made my day! I am with you on money and gift cards. I personally would so much rather receive cash as a gift. Then I can buy whatever the heck I want. This is also why, when it comes to birthdays and holidays, my husband and I tell each other exactly what we want. At least I do. That way, it's something that I love and can have forever. I'm so with you on this!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family! :)

  2. I can totally find myself in your answer. I do sometimes give a personal gift, but that's just because I remember that the lucky one said something about it. I'd rather pick something myself than getting something I don't know what to do with.

  3. First off, I miss you!

    Gift cards/money is the best gift because they get to choose what they want.

    Btw, I'm waiting for some of your gifts to come in so I can add a few more things and ship it out to you!
