When to Give Gifts


Do you give a gift when you buy it for somebody, or do you wait for their birthday or Christmas?

It depends. It depends on what the gift is and how close I buy the gift to the holiday. I bought ID bracelets months ago for my granddaughters for Christmas and have had them here for at least six months, waiting for Christmas. I bought them especially for Christmas. But other small gifts I bought during the year, I gave them during the year. For example, I bought them a game, Loterĺa, whwn I went to the Mexican market downtown and gave it to them when we were baking Thanksgiving pies. Mostly I look for gifts during the year for my loved ones’ birthdays and Christmas and save them until that time. If I see something I know they will like, I’ll get it and save it. It’s easier than waiting until the last minute.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    My wife and daughter cannot wait to give gifts! They want to hand them over the minute they arrive back from the store!
