Hard to believe I still got Presents

gift,wrapped

Hello Lotters, Im pretty sure some of you already know my age and it's probably not that young anymore. but this Christmas day It's hard to believe that I still get to have presents from my siblings. First, from my middle brother's sister in law, it was small. I really thought it was some sort of tooth brush because I bought a new one last night. when i opened it was actually a USB light. Something I've long desired, but that was when I was planning for my desktop, that would have been useful. but i'll keep this until I have bought a power bank. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-xKx9aULwU Second, from my Eldest sister in law. Although she kept mentioning simple, it was thoughtful and nice. Another mug but it was nice to have something new that is simple and added evelen dollar pocket change, which is a lot here. I gave them some cash presents too. but they later found out that it actually came from grandma Maybe it's not bad to save some for next years christmas. I just have to focus more online. Have a nice day and Merry Xmas

How nice that you had gifts to open for Christmas. I had a few myself and it does make things a little more exciting.

Hello @simone10 I opened it on the spot and it was really something I appreciated. it made me feel excited because I wasn't expecting them anything.

@Letranknight2015 Those are always the best kinds of gifts, the unexpected ones.

Gifts are nice to give and receive at any age, Letran! But if you are not wanting to receive them, just send them my way. I am only 70 and still love opening packages!

Hello @richnonai not sure if you want a USB light and a cup, but this is something i rarely received. you know about getting that old, that's something I've been meaning to talk for sometime. but not right now, im glad you still love opening presents.

Receiving gifts does not stop no matter how old you are for as long as there are people around who cares for you.

That is nice that you still get presents from your siblings. I used to, but that was years ago, before they started having their own kids. Things got pretty expensive, so we stopped it.

Hello @Razzles I thought so too for the last few years but I think when they gave me something that is simplier, that made me realize i should give them something simple too. you should please continue, it doesn't have to be expensive.

Hello @sharon6345 , oh yes very soon and I hope that time i would be ready to give them something again out of my own money.

haha, next year you can give them something nice too. There is a survey that women prefer to have vouchers as gifts. Perhaps you can work harder, and give them a voucher to buy some make-up or perfume or other things that women like.

Hello @scheng1 , not within my family but i don't know what they want. I might end up giving the wrong set of gifts, must be worried too much. well, i will think of something cheaper but valuable like they do.

Merry Christmas! It is always nice to receive gifts from people who are close to our hearts. No matter how simple that gift may be we keep it close to our hearts cauuse its their way of saying they love and care for us.

Hello @mammots I didn't think i would get one since they are both in financial strains. its hard to believe but I've been having trouble saving a lot lately and earning here seemed a bitharder than before but it's ok. merry xmas

Hello @nonersays , I guess there's no excuse now for giving some of them next year. but this past few months it hasn't been easy for me because i started earning low lately.
