THE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

December 17, 2009

It is a mere 8 days before Christmas and I have yet to buy one. single. gift.

Panic.

This is unlike me.  Don’t get me wrong, this is certainly not the first time I have waited until the eleventh hour to get something done.  Just ask my sister-in-law, Cydney, who I convinced to help me plant flowers by flashlight in my backyard the night before Olivija’s christening luncheon at our house.  That’s right….80 people at our home for a sit down luncheon, 6 weeks after having a baby, in a house we had lived in less than 6 months…and I’m planting flowers in the dark.  True story.

But I do not typically procrastinate when it comes to shopping.  I happen to love everything about gift giving and I take immense pride in coming up with the perfect gift and selecting coordinating gift wrap no matter the occasion.  But it seems these days I just can’t seem to make a decision.  Real life conversation from last night:

ME: Hey, Liv…we need to get a Christmas gift for tata (a.k.a “dad” in English).  What do you think?

LIV: I don’t really feel like shopping.

ME: Well, he mentioned to me that you guys were going to help him shop for me so I thought maybe you could help me shop for him.

LIV: Well the thing is, shopping for you is easy because I’m a girl and I know what girls like.  I have no idea what a boy likes.  [long pause]  I don’t mean to be sassy [writer’s note: she meant to be sassy]…but maybe you should have thought about this sooner.

ME:  So I’m on my own then?

LIV: You’re on your own.

Well here is the thing, I may not have been shopping but I have been thinking about this whole gift thing quite a bit.  And I think I’ve assembled a very practical last minute gift guide for just about everyone on your list.  So you, my friends, are not on your own.  Panic over.
