You take the present and open it carefully, delaying the surprise you know you’re going to feel. When you remove it all, it’s a sweater, an orange sweater. Your heart sinks are your cheeks rise. You say, “Thanks, Aunt Gladys. It’s exactly what I wanted.” You watch her smile in appreciation and mentally try to fit the hideous sweater into a drawer so that you don’t have to see it until next Christmas.
It’s unfortunate to give or receive a gift that is unwanted. That’s why it’s much better to choose a gift that everyone can use, rather than a specific item that you hope your loved one will appreciate.
Take discount digital cameras, for example. Anyone who needs a camera will love a little point and shoot, and you won’t have to break the bank to make it happen. And if you want stocking stuffers for your kids, Disney toys and Hannah Montana toys are a great idea. Save the big item for under the tree, and fill their stockings with stuff they’ll be sure to love.
It’s the thought that counts, but everyone loves getting something they’ve wanted for a long time. So don’t disappoint this holiday season, and choose Disney toys or discounted digital cameras from Extra Stuff 2009!
