Shopping For Gifts

What holiday is the toughest to buy gifts for someone? It could be a birthday, Christmas, Valentines Day, etc. That's a hard question for me because sometimes itll be easier one time on a birthday than Christmas or Christmas than Valentines day. So what do you feel is the hardest holiday to pick out gifts?

I would go with Christmas just because there are tons of people shopping at the same time and the stores are crowded.

I would have to say Christmas, I never know what to buy, there's always too many people on my list, and when I think I finally finished and all I have to do is spend a long time wrapping presents, I realise there is always one or a few presents missing, and the last ones are always harder to find. Every year gets harder as I have to remember what I gave them in the previous years just so I don't give something similar. For me it is a really stressful time, every year I plan to start getting the presents a month before, but that never happens.

Mm.. I think it depends more on who are you buying the gift for, because sometimes, well at least it happens to me, you know exactly what would you get for a certain friend and then for some other people you never know what to get! that's my opinion.. but maybe Christmas is the hardest because you have to give a lot of gifts and in Valentines Day you can just give all your friends a chocolate and have a nice dinner with your special one ;)

is birthday a holiday? LOL hello, missmonika and welcome to mylot! i think the toughest time to pick a gift for someone doesn't depend on the occasion. it's more on what the receiver needs, wants or likes. it takes me a long time to decide if that person almost got everything he/she needs. when picking gifts, i consider a lot of things like age, lifestyle, health habit, fashion taste, etc. happy mylotting.
