What does gift-giving mean to you?|
I agree with the personal aspect of gift giving.
On two occasions, someone from my group of friends suggested that we do one of those white elephant exchanges. It sucked big time. I hated the fact that the gift was not intended for someone, but was something that anyone might like. The asinity of it was displayed when someone bought something specifically for my wife; something specifically for her that no-one else would even want!
This year, my sister suggested that we (siblings and spouses) do a white elephant. I'm bursting with anticipation. [/sarcasm]
