Right now I have a good idea: I will write vouchers. In every voucher I will write:
In case you send back this voucher I will dedicate one of my next Ashtanga yoga practices to you. Love. Ursula.
But I think presents like this are not appreciated. Most people like to touch something. I know a boy who said: "I like hard presents not soft presents, while touching all the presents. "(hard present means toys, soft present means clothes).
I was downtown, I work downtown. There seem to be a lot of people like me. Many people are shopping right now till 8 p.m., then the shops will close. All the shops are cramped.
I make the whole giving simple for the others. I buy my own christmas presents and then I tell the spender the price. I bought this nice winter coat for me. I will give it to my bf so that he has something for me. I bought a book for me for his mother, so that she has something for me. For my mother I bought a parfum, for me, too. I buy my own presents and I buy the presents that I want to give. It makes me all crazy.
This year I have just no ideas, I only find things for me. It is such a stress. Gifts are overfreighted with feelings. Does this gift mean that I'm honored enough, does the spender really know me and so on........
Now I have tomorrow evening and Saturday to get all the gifts. But on Saturday I already have to drive home. And when to pack the presents that I do not have yet. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhh.
