Q & A

I am constantly being asked what Id like for xmas. Nothing comes to mind. Im really easy to please so ive been saying whatever you choose. But my sister in law says Im being difficult.
Im really not. How do I explain that I really dont want anything and Im happy with whatever....ok as long as thought goes into it anyway.
Am I wrong? I feel preasure now that I should have a list.

    • Personally I am that person that needs those parameters to work within. My hubz and stepson both say things like they don’t need or want anything. And that always leaves me guessing. My daughter says I should “just know mom“.  

      Well I prefer to get things that they actually want (my other daughter gives me her list by Thanksgiving) vs what I think I know they want.

      So in all situations where communication and imagination fails I take them out on a date. Movies and dinner with the boys and shopping and lunch with my daughter. I actually gift wrap a coupon in a card with a date planned.

    • I need those parameters too.   Just tell me SOMETHING!  Like, oh I just love chocolate, or, I collect thingamajigs.

    • You got me thinking, Cris. (uh oh! LOL)  How about you give her a list of some things that are special you’d like from her that speaks of your relationship with her? A movie you’d seen together that you both were wowed by, a framed photo of the two of you, a scarf like one she has that you really like, something that speaks of your bond with her. With a list it will be a surprise to you of what she decides on and she’s going to feel good about gifting you. ;o)

    • Vikki your idea sounds good.  I like the parameters I feel that when I give the gift I am giving something that will actually mean something to you.

    • Cris,
      I can see both sides.  On the one hand you’d be glad to get anything and would be happy to be surprised.  On the other hand, it would sure make things easier for your sister-in-law if you gave her some hints- like suggesting some books you’d like, a new nightgown, etc. heart

    • lol after I posted one thing did pop into mind...a Ansel Addams print ive been thinking about getting but because I feel its to much to ask someone to buy is it tacky to ask for a visa giftcard to put towards it?
