Gift-shopping

Have you ever had difficulties trying to get the most suitable gift for your family or friends for their birthdays? That was what I experienced today.

I have a birthday party to attend in 2 hours' time and I still haven't got a gift for my friend! Arrghhh!! I did try to find a gift for her. I window shopped from 1.30pm until 4.00pm and practically looked into every shop and corner in Atria, PJ (which is small, thank God!) but in the end, I only end up with a second hand book for my own reading during this holidays and a birthday card. Still no gift!! And I have only 1 hour and 45 minutes left to get one!

It's not that I don't want to get a gift for my friend. I do! But the problem is I just don;t know what to get her. I considered aromatherapy set, necklace, braceleet-watch, a blue top, handbag, scarf and even chocolates. It seems I have too many choices and in the end was unable to make one!

And then I realised it's so much easier to get a gift for a guy friend because the range of gifts are drastically narrower. So it'll be easier to make a decision on what to get for them compared to getting somethign for a girl friend. I'm a girl, and I find it difficult to get a gift for my own kind. Now I truly understand how guys felt when they have no idea what to get for a girl friend.

Then comes the next big headache...budget!

And lastly, people always worry about whether their friend will like the gift... What if I got the wrong gift? What if she didn'tlike the colour? What if she already has an identical handbag or scarf? ....Hmm....ok, I admit I'm a worry-wreck!

Omigod...exactly 90 minutes to get prepared n shop for the gift!

I have decided to go with the handbag...lets hope I don't have second thoughts!

  1. It's never true that buying a gift for a guy is easier. Remember that guys don't read books that often, nor they like huggie bears, or aroma stuff blah blah blah... Guys want macho stuff, and macho stuff ain't cheap. Ain't nothing going up, but the bills...

    Congrats on your first blog... I am so proud to see another new-birth blogger! sniff! sniff!

  2. ha..i know who is the one with the j nick.. haha..hie to j

    it is true that choosing and buying gift for someone who mean something to you(not only boyfriend, but even friend) isnt easy. you wish to pick the best out of the best, but the problem is there is no "best of the best". even that, you wish to buy something that suit that person, but most of the case, you will come across it other time but not the time when you're window shop to buy birthday gift for taht person.

    worst come to worst, if ever you cant find a gift..let me teach you a trick that i GUESS can work. hug that person and give her a kiss, and tell her that you're trying to find the best for her but to no avail. however, i never try this idea before. tell me if you succeed. haha...
    take care.. ya
