You completely misunderstood what I said. I didn't say I was self righteous. Just some people need to learn that we can't all have nice things. Does a teenager want clothes for Christmas? No, he/she probably wants a car. But they should be thankful they have clothes because some people don't.
Maybe it's just me, but I like to run some ideas by my friends and family before buying for them, that way I know that what I'll get them is something they might enjy, all the while leaving some surprise as to what it might be.
#13 -- Sometimes there are misses even with the best of intentions and with people you know really well. And sometimes talking through wants/needs with people (or getting someone else to do so unobtrusively) gives you new insights or a better gift idea, even for someone for whom you might think you already know the perfect present.
Someone peeked! I'm guessing it's One Direction merchandise. Girls go crazy for them immediately, but seem to get sick of them quickly.
Better to know they hate it before you give it to them and not after... That happens to me every year with my dad. I'm starting to think he just hates everything.
Your Dad tells you that he hates your gifts?? What's his problem? I still have every necklace my kids made or bought me in their school Christmas store, from costing .01 to $1.00. My kids are 34 to 18 yrs old so, prices changed a lot! I also still have (on display) everything they made me as gifts! I love everything my kids give me!
He's kind of a hardass, doesn't have much feelings lol. Like he'll pretend to like it, and then stare at it for half an hour trying to find SOMETHING wrong with it so he can return it without seeming "rude". Like last year I bought him and he gave it to my boyfriend right in front of me.
