christmas presents!


I'm weird about presents. I don't give them just based on how much I care about a person -- I give them based 40% on how much I care about them, and 60% on how perfect a present I can think of for them. So sometimes my friends go without birthday/christmas presents because I can't think of anything that makes me go, "Oh that's perfect!" (and is also within my financial reach)

I already bought alariya's Christmas and birthday presents. ;-D I just KNOW she will LOVE them! (but what is up with December b-days? seriously?) And I got elya's present.
And I know what I'm getting Anika and Hannah... but for everyone else, I have some ideas but nothing decided. So, to increase your chances (which still may not be good because I have to make my money stretch) or just to let me learn a little more about you, either post your wish list, or comment here with it! Give me a good variety of stuff to choose from. ;-)

This so makes me wish I was fabulously wealthy. I'd spend ridiculous amounts of money this time of year.

my wish list is here, if you're curious. ;-)

It can be both good and bad having our birthday in the month of December. I'm just glad my birthday is not like my cousin, on Dec 24th ;)

I love trying to find people just the right thing, thought it doesn't always happen. I will buy something months ahead of time if I see just the right thing. I don't like getting presents for people if I don't know what to get them.

Did you receive my card is the postal service fucking up again?
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
as you know I did recieve it. ;-) and I got a stamp for yours, so I will probably send it tomorrow or the next day.

Woohoo, I feel so spoiled!

*huge grin*

You know, I like to think that I don't mind if people ever get me presents. But really, I abso-freakin'-lutely loooove it 'cause it shows they are thinking of me. I love to be thought of. I have something semi-fantabulous that I've been saving for you, and hopefully I'll get a good job soon, 'cause I've happed upon something that I think is marvelous, only I need a few tools to implement it...

I love you. Just reading that has made me feel special for the day. :D
belenen ══╣effervescent╠══
Oh you SHOULD feel spoiled, girlie. ;-) Just wait!

And I can't wait for whatever it is! ;-)

I'm kind of the same way - I rather hate giving present at holiday time because it forces me to either scramble and buy something that isn't perfectly what I wanted to get the person, or hold on to something for months on end waiting for the holiday to come around.

Heh, and this is a good time to say this, because while I know what I'd like to get you, I have no idea if I stand a chance in hell of getting it before Christmas. So regardless, expect a card, but don't be overly shocked if your present comes sometime after the holiday has passed. :-P

awwwww you're getting me a present!!! I feel so special!!! *HUGS*

Dunno if I ever told you, but when you sent me a birthday present last year I wasn't just surprised, I was shocked! I had no idea that you cared enough to send me a present -- much less make me something! But I wrote it off, thinking you were just generous. Now I think you loved me. ;-) ♥

did you ever get the postcard I mailed? I wanna send the xmas cd soon, but I kinda wanna see the first thing get there first, so I know it'll get there.

Re: on pins & needles
I totally got it, as you have seen. And you said you didn't say anything smartass -- addressing it to Bel. E. Dancer! *snicker* It took me a minute -- I was like, "Dancer? That's not my last name..." and then I got it and laughed out loud. ;-)

*sticks out tongue at you* BE MORE SPECIFIC!!!!!!!!!!

I want a list from you missy, even if it's just to give me ideas! I have part of your present, but I want to add something else, and I don't know what! So gimme ideas!

well, um, hrm... what's been floating my boat lately is striped socks - long ass striped socks. my favoritest pairs of socks right now are knee highs with big chunky stripes: one is purple and green, the other is navy and greyish pinkish. i also love toe socks.

(i'm a pisces and ruled by my feet, yanno.)

other than socks... hrm. i shall have to think on that one!

Bel, I had a dream about you last night. We were in a small town riding bikes -- I had a blue bike, and you had a purple bike. The whole purpose of our ride was to go buy a gift for a mutual friend. We never got to the store, though. We ended up riding all through town and the surrounding areas -- up and down hills, around lakes, through meadows . . .

It was such a nice, peaceful dream.
belenen ══╣loving╠══
oh how wonderful! ;-D I love that. ;-) Now we've both had a visit to each other's subconscious. *giggle*

what sweet dedication to your friends you have.
I'm basically the same way.
cept, I see a TON of things that resemble my friends.
so I end up splurging on something ALWAYS on x-mas.
thought this year i'm limited. ACK!!!!

Don't worry about the money spending, most people do spend the most. Afterall, it is the most wonderful time for consumers of the year!!!!
=D
belenen ══╣christmassy╠══
It is wonderful! I love this time of year.
