One of the things I hate to do more than anything else? I hate to shop for gifts! Don't get me wrong here, I love to give! I just hate all that comes with shopping for gifts.
The traffic jams to get the mall. Once I finally get to the mall, I find so many people there hustling and bustling around! Did I mention I live out on a remote ranch? Yup, there is a reason for that!
I enjoy being out here in the outback of New Mexico! The wide open spaces with a few cows, chickens, and our 3 dogs, of course. So you see, I am not the type of fella that enjoys going into town and fighting traffic and crowds.
There is another angle to shopping for gifts that make it difficult for me to buy the 'perfect gift'. I never know what the perfect gift is! I once bought my daughter a new Kindle Fire, only to find out that her husband had already bought her one!
I also know that my gifts end up in a box and are put in away in the attic or garage for 'safekeeping'. I often wonder if they really did sell my gift on ebay.
I have found the perfect solution to my gift giving woes, though! I don't have to fight trafffic or crowds! I can even stay in my pajamas! I am what you would call an online shopper! I have found some awesome treasures online. For instance, did you know you can buy amazon gift cards? These aren't just any gift card, mind you. These gift cards can be printed on your own printer! You can also email these gift cards directly to the recipient!
The coolest option I have found is being able to post the gift card right on the person's facebook wall! I love shopping in my pajamas!
Gift giving has become a hate/love relationship with me. I love to give gifts, but I sure do hate all that comes with going to the mall in order to buy those gifts.
These reasons above is why this ole cowboy is headed for the vast sea of the internet. I won't be using my horse for these adventures. I will be using my mouse.
I have been honing my online shopping skills and would like to share my findings with ya'll.
I have been on the lookout for some unique things and ways for you to let that special someone know just how much you love them.
So stay tuned to some upcoming hubs that I hope will be helpful to all you gift shoppers out there!
If you haven't guessed by now, I like to laugh and have fun. Life is way too short, so let's enjoy it while can.
