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!
