I can be a little overbearing when it comes to Christmas presents. When I am on my game, I can and will find the one thing that will make the recipient of the gift weep tears of joy. Gift giving is a competitive sport for me, and I will try my best to win the “thoughtfulness” game. Christmas elf Leslie Knope would probably agree with me.
However, this also makes me a terrible gift receiver. The stakes are too high with me. If asked, I will definitely provide some options for gifts for me, since I know I’m a difficult person with nerdy tastes that can prove difficult for those adverse to online-shopping. I’m still sorry, Mom, for not being more amped about that Swatch watch a few years ago, but you had just given me a watch so was this just a year-long message about being punctual?
Are you a terrible gift-receiver, too? Are you a terrible gift-giver? Do you still do Christmas list exchanges to make sure presents are actually appreciated and wanted? Do people still wear Swatches?
