Everyone knows that not all of their friends and family are alike. They all have their own special likes, hobbies and fascinations. This very fact is what genuinely makes the holidays a tough time. I mean, who really wants an impersonal, impractical gift? There is nothing that says “I don’t know you at all” like hand lotion, gift cards, socks, or some other obligatory holiday present.
To be quite honest, I feel that the holidays are a time for children and that adults should just join in celebration of the presence of their loved ones. However, some people just like stuff. And sometimes it is just really fun to buy a present that you know a person you care about is going to truly love.
Since everyone is their own unique snowflake, here are some present ideas for possible snowflakes in your life.
