I have a huge tribe, normally we do handmade crafts as majority of them prefer the "spend time on me not money" mantra.
My three heathens made out like bandits this year. I shouldn't do that but I never realize it until I don't have places to hide things anymore and I start using family/friend's houses to hide shit.
Youngest pulled a Dudley Dursley on me earlier, she put her little fists on her hips and stomped her little boot as she counted presents under the tree. "ONLY SIX?!" Yes, you little spoiled monster of my own making, you are lucky to get those six!
Got my bearded dragon a hammock.
Work peeps I made up little goodie bags with nail polishes that matched their style/personality. Just five ladies total and I'm pretty sure I knocked that out of the park with the color choices. I think these gifts/bags made me feel so happy putting together and handing out. Their faces/reactions are priceless.
All in all, holidays are exhausting between thinking of gifts, affording those gifts, wrapping those gifts, keeping my lips shut about those gifts or making handmade trinkets.
I'm ready for it to be over.
I bought several copies of my favorite book to give to certain people. Particularly those people who I feel it will expand their horizons (it's a graphic novel and I know a lot of people who would never consider ever reading one).
I'm 26 and only gift to certain friends and my immediately family members- usually 1 gift each, though a S.O. would usually get several things.
i recently quit my job so i couldn't get everything i wanted for everyone but:
my mom: a nice shirt and sweater
my brother: nice jacket and headphones
my best friend's mom: necklace from fred meyer's jeweler
"" dad: complete star wars dvd box set (IT WAS $40 CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT)
"" brother 1: vintage snoopy doll
"" brother 2: the freddy, foxy, chica, and bonnie pop viyl dolls
best friend: matching wario and waluigi WAH shirts, a ring to match mine that he bought me, and idk about a third present for him
