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.
