Yeah, I know friends and family read my site. That is the reason why while I’m thinking out loud here, I will not name names.
While I was conferring with my husband about my final shopping list for the holidays, complete with specific targeted present to buy for each recipient, he played a devil’s advocate as he saw a laptop listed besides someone else’s name. We went on and on discussing about the pros and cons and the practicality of having to fork out quite a sum for this present during these tumultuous economic times yet, when we think about the happiness and the delight of the recipient once the boxed present is opened, it would be a priceless joy for us knowing that we fulfilled someone’s dream. We are very well aware how the would-be recipient has been wishing to have one.
We’re undecided, as we want to be frugal and practical at a time where everyone’s job security is at risk. Just curious, what would you do if you were in our shoes, knowing that the recipient is one very special person?
