as i mentioned in my holiday musings post - i love gift giving. i think it's so cool to find something special for someone. to give them something because you love them, like them a lot or appreciate what they do for you. and you know what? i'm a pretty darn good gift giver. i keep lists all year long so that i don't find myself scrambling at the last minute. i wrote a post about that here.
but here's the thing - i'm at my best gift giving when it's for the wrong people. i can't tell you how many times i see something in a store, or online and i think:
"that would be perfect for the girl i work with because one time she mentioned that she liked those things!"
"this is the perfect gift for that guy i met who is a friend of a friend of my friend so and so!"
"i wonder if my girlfriend's husband would think it was weird if i got him this perfect gift?"
i'm always wishing that i thought of the perfect thing for the right people, like my mom or my brothers or my husband or my best friend...
