The upcoming holiday seasons bring a big problem to my house (or rather to Mom).
What do I buy for everyone???!!!!
J (Daddy) doesn't buy any presents except for Rosie. I buy the rest of them, even for his side of the family! Abe would be perfectly happy with book store gift cards to use on Dungeons & Dragons books, or games for his GameCube. But J insists, and I agree, that we should get him things that will be more interactive, rather than isolating. So it's incredibly hard to find anything for him. And then there is J, who wants the big boy toys, but just goes out and spends (a lot of) money on them anytime. (But would scream if I did that!)
Rosie would be happy with lots of jewelry and clothes (but then so would I). I would be happy if any of the above men actually went out and thought about an appropriate gift for me. My darling girl will always make or get me something.
My gift giving balancing act calls for one moderately big gift per person and then several small (sometimes very small) gifts for the kids. And there certainly have to be the same number of gifts for both kids or screams erupt.
Rosie is easy to get things for. But the boys??? Impossible. I don't have any good ideas. Anyone want to help me out?
As a side note, I just found a wonderful new site (by the brother of my SIL) where you can get shopping totes and recycled goods. I'm getting a bunch of the shopping totes as secretary gifts!!
