For writer’s workshop this week, the topic was to write about my top five “must have” gifts that I am buying for loved ones.
I’ll be honest with you, I am such a uncreative gift giver. Since graduating from college and becoming an adult, I find it really hard to pick out gifts for others. Unlike kids, adults don’t usually ask for specific gifts. If they want something they buy it. At least that’s my take on it. Therefore I never know what to buy people. Do I get something they need? That’s not always very exciting. Do I get something I like? But they might not like it.
So what’s my “must have” gift?
A gift card!
Some might think they are impersonal, but I don’t think so. I love to get gift cards. So I just assume that others do too. Every so often I find something that seems like a neat gift, but then I worry that it’s not enough so I end up adding a gift card to it anyways.
Do you like to receive gift cards? What is the “must have” gift you are giving this year?
