My entire family, birth and in-laws, insists that I’m hard to shop for. So much so that they reject the notion of suggestions, and insist on the Amazon list. (It had better be a big Amazon list, too, with a wide range of price points. And it had better contain something they’re excited to give me. :dubious: ) I honestly don’t think I am all that hard to shop for–I like animals and almost any sort of craft and cooking and gardening and travelling and reading. It’s not like we’re talking about my 85-year old grandfather who only leaves the house for church and doctor’s appointments and sits around watching tv or napping when he’s at home.
If you want to know if I would like something, there’s a fairly simple set of questions to ask. Is it fuzzy or otherwise have an awesome texture? Can it be squooshed or cuddled? Is there an amusing picture and/or an animal on it? Can I eat it? Can I make something with it? Can I squirrel away things to eat or make things with in it? Can I use it to procure things to eat, make things with, or squirrel things away in? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you probably have a winner.
What about you?
