Have you ever said, “Man, I never win anything!” and still think that “this” time will be different if you enter that drawing, raffle or giveaway? That was me but I finally won! (My husband did but, by default, it’s actually my prize). We won a Scentsy gift basket at his work’s pizza party. If you’re unfamiliar with Scentsy, all it is is a fancy candle wax warmer that soccer moms, single women and (newly learned) some closet scent-fetsished men rave about.
We’re pretty excited about it when we plug that sucker in that same night. It’s so exciting that I’m already thinking of gifting them out! My mother is first in line, of course. She is the absolute most difficult person to buy for. She is all about practicality not materialism as most older generation Laotians are. Last Christmas, I buy her this expensive bottle of lavender lotion. On our next visit, I see her wearing neon socks I gifted to my little sister!
Did I mention that I never win?
Who in your family is difficult to buy for? Do you celebrate American holidays or favor your own cultural holidays? What is your worst gift received?
