It’s The Thought That Counts
Don’t get me wrong I appreciate the thought and love that goes into every gift I get but most of the time it’s not a gift that I necessarily wanted. Of course when you open the gift you don’t want to be rude so most of the time you pretend that you love it. But usually this isn’t the case. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten a birthday present from an aunt or uncle and it’s something I’ll never wear or use. Year after year I open gifts and pretend that I’m in love with it because I know they put a lot of thought into buying that gift and really that’s all that matters in my book.
The Reality Of Bad Gifts
In reality these gifts usually end up in the back of my closet or I give it away. Getting a bad gift is never fun and its even worse because you have to pretend you love it and because of this you continue to get gifts that you’ll never use. This is a frustrating process and there’s really no one to blame because if your anything like me when someone asks you what you want your response is “I have no idea”. So they just go out and buy you the same thing they’ve gotten you in the past and the results never change. Although throughout the year I may have seen something I liked and didn’t buy, I can never remember exactly what it was. This is just another problem with the way we currently shop for gifts, we never know what we want and if we do its uncomfortable sharing ideas because you don’t know how much someone is willing to spend.
