Gifts of...

This is the time of year when it hits me with tsumnai force that I have a long list of people to purchase for, a small budget to do it with and no clue what I need to shop for! There are so many ways to find the perfect gift, many new avenues to help. There is a commercial for some internet site where they will help you choose something by having you describe the person you are trying to buy for. How helpful. The fact of the matter is the only perfect gifts aren't things that can get wrapped with a fancy bow. The gift of life, the gift of love and the gift of health. Happiness might make that list, but that is really more of a personal choice. Love is something very giveable, but not really package-able. Life is giveable as long as you are will to be responsible for the results for many years to come. Twice is good for me! Health may be givable if I was a doctor, which I am not, and it is certainly not a guarenteed product or something one might wrap. So that leaves me to the rat race of shopping with the hoards of Buffalonians trying to find the items that no one really needs, but it might put a smile on the face of their loved one, while not putting them in debt up to their eyeballs. Good luck shoppers!

Perfect gift requirements for your nephews include anything:

1. they do not have to get out (so will never need to put away).

2. that fits or can be used by either of them or both of them at the same time or not, depending on momentary whim.

Seriously, $5 or $10 on a Wegmans gift card that they could use to select their very own box of ridiculous cereal or whatever else they'd like would delight them. Paste pictures of Trix and Cheetos on the envelope and watch their glee! :)
