The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than its value
- Charles Dudley Warner -
This statement is so true.I know people that think they need to spend loads of money on gifts and the person they gave it to really did not like it. Many times it is because the person giving the gift does not have a clue about what the other person likes or maybe it is because they don't care. What they want is for people to ooo and awww because of the expensive gift. It is a matter of prestige. I got a vacuum cleaner for Christmas one year. There were people saying that they could not believe that Pat would give me something like that. I loved it. I am a practical person for the most part. I needed a cleaner and I would not have bought me anywhere near as good of a machine as he did for me. I am easy to please.LOL I like things for my kitchen and my home. I wear very few pieces of jewelry, no fancy clothes and I am not a shoe person.
