    I like this way of giving, yet I find it challenging to properly implement. People generally don’t even know what they like anymore. And if they don’t even know, how the hell do you expect Me to know ?

    I’ve noticed a pretty massive drop in self-knowledge in the last few years. Society is causing people to own more stuff, and with every item someone owns, the smaller the chance that I’ll be able to find something unique and special gets.

      You make an interesting point.

      But the way I see it is that you don’t have to buy a physical gift. You can make one. Or you can arrange for an experience of some kind.

      Self-knowledge could indeed be becoming scarcer and scarcer, but I think if you listen and pay attention, people give you gift ideas all year round.

    I aaaagree. I’ve been called a superawesomegiftgiver for a reason. I too listen. I too go out of my way to get the one thing that will totally blow their mind in a very silly very us way. The hardest part is waiting until Christmas.

      Yesssssss. Tom Petty was right about the waaaiting being the hardest part.

      What also sucks is when you find the present early and then try to fight the urge to buy another one (or four) before Christmas.

    Peter, someone needs to clone you. I have never met another guy who puts so much thought into giving gifts. :)
