I use to love shopping for gifts for friends and family members. It was a fun challenge. Now, I'm not as enthusiastic. Some people are just so picky and hard to buy for. I know people, though, that love to shop for other people. They will go shopping and buy clothes and items for others for no reason at all. Do you like shopping for other people?

I rarely go shopping, much less than shopping for others. But I do love to give others surprises during special occasions like graduation day, valentine's day and birthdays. Most of time, I would squeeze my words in greeting cards, do some handicraft and gave them to my friends. Occasionally, when I was outside and find some very interesting gift to give friends, I would also buy them and surprise all my friends.

I love shopping for others - I enjoy making others smile and even if its just a simple card or something nicer, I always enjoy it. Thats so sad that you know people that don't appreciate what you do for them. I love everything that I get as long it is from someone that cares for me - I might not cherish it, but I would never say that it wasn't good enough or even think it. Maybe thats just me though...

NO I do not usually unless it is urgent and that person cannot due to certain circumstances or problems, even then if I do it is for something which carries no personal choice like maybe fruits or vegetables, never clothes etc where personal likings count a lot.

Buying things for other people is such a hard task for me. During their birthdays, it is taking me to much time to pick the best gift I could ever give. I do enjoy shopping for myself because I know what I want and my choices but for other people it is so hard. I want my gifts to be appreciated but how if I don't even know how to choose the gifts they like?
