it may sound lame but i would much rather have someone tell me what they want and then i'll just go buy it - easy peasy. it also doesn't help the situation that i have to buy a lot of gifts for my ridiculously big fat greek family.
17 gifts total.
a little ridiculous huh? it is what it is though.
the tough thing is coming up with what to get people like my aunts and uncles (who have everything) on my budget. i mean, do they really need another silver tray or coffee table book? probably not.
so for christmas last year i gave my family something that they didn't even know they wanted.
i found this wonderful organization called world vision that allowed me to purchase the goats through their online catalog. i purchased pigs as gifts too - i mean bacon, hello!
seriously though, you can give so much support to needy children around the world - school books, clean water, sheep, pigs, etc. if you are stuck without a gift idea during this holiday season i recommend checking out the goat option.
the best part aside from helping out those less fortunate, is seeing your family's face when they open the card saying that they got a goat for christmas.
priceless. my family couldn't stop laughing. here i am, one of the most selfish and materialistic people they know - giving back.
see, i do have a heart - i'm not that selfish and materialistic. go goat!
what's the strangest gift that you have ever given or received? (herpes doesn't count)
