I love buying gifts
I had never had troubles with that
but I need the time to chose wisely
therefore I hate when somebody calls me last moment with the words "hey, I have a birthday party tomorrow and you are invited"
CHOOSING GIFTS REQUIRES TIME!!!
I myself create a mental picture of a person I am going to get a gift
like a projection of that person and I start putting everything I know about that person on that projection
everything I learned for the last year
everything I heard and remember about that person
then I am starting mentally applying objects to that projection
does it suit him/her?
does he/she want it?
and in the end I have a couple of options from what I chose based on my budget
I don't like when people ordering gifts
for me it is more like "if you know what you need, then just go to the freaking shop and buy that freaking thing"
but it makes life so much more easier
so I always ask if they expect something
I don't like it
but I am lazy ass :)
it is a mystery for me, why do you wait for some special date to get the thing you really need
Gifts for me are things, that you don't need, but you want, but you realize you don't want to buy them, because it would be a waste of money
but you still would wanna have it :)
I don't think food, clothes, medical things and other necessary things are a gift
no matter how much it costs
have nothing against accessories, thou
the millionth bag that you want, but you understand that you already have 999 999 other ones would make a great gift
there are three things that I love, but already have way too much
I commited a crime
I ordered a gift
because I want it
but I have dozens of others
but I want this one
because of the package
only because of it
it is haunting me
why had not I bought it?
because I like fig, but not a big fan of jasmine
so couple of months ago I bought this one:
I love the package
not the cream itself
so it would be absurd to buy another one
only because of the package
that would make it a perfect gift for me
do I need it?
do I want it
hell yes :)
but it is out of stock
so not this time, not this time
invest your time in thinking about a person you are giving the gift to
sometimes I give those kind of "here is you fucking gift, just fuck off already" kind of attitude gifts
and you understand it right away
