Birthday present problem....?
January 23, 2007 3:16am CST
These 2 friends of mine birthdays are coming up, one i have known for over 6 years (S) and the other only one year (J) S always seems to buy me cheap meaningless gifts, and J spends a reasonable amount on me. Problem is, both of their birthdays are pretty much at the same time, one after the other....now if i buy J an expensive gift and S a cheap one, she'd feel ripped off and betrayed because we spent more on someone we hardly know and less on her - what shall i do? I dont want to spend too much on S because she hardly spends any on me, but then i keep thinking she would compare her (cheaper) gift to the gift i gave J.... Any ideas what the right thing to do is?

so, are you saying the basis for the gifts is the price for each one? how about the meaning you put into the gift? for example, a book that you read which reminds you so much of your friend... if price is the only basis, then how about just giving a card...and include some cash...
