Ah! The joyous season of Christmas draws near!
Much fun can be found in fighting off mobs of stressed people and rummaging through stores endlessly for Christmas gifts.
I only enjoy shopping for people I love (myself in particular), which is why I detest Kris Kringles!
I understand it's just a bit of fun to be someone else's secret santa.
BUT! How am I suppose to find something decent under $15 for a co-worker I don't really know??
Moreover, for this year's Kris Kringle I am to buy a present for a young male colleague! D'oh!
Sure, I suppose I could get chocolates or wine... but that's really boring. I know, I know... I'm just asking for trouble :(
I thought of swiss army knives but they were definitely out of the budget of $15.
I thought of getting a nice fluid lighter case too but I don't think he wants people to know he smokes? (I found out by accident btw)
Anyho, after much fretting and wringing of hands, I think I've gotten a reasonable present for him from Borders, thanks to a very patient boyfriend :D
Better yet, I managed to get of $20 off my purchases due to my VIP Borders card (There's currently an ongoing promotion whereby you'd get a $20 gift voucher if you signed up. The light-bulb above the scrooge in me lit up at the sight of it)
Moreover, I just checked my email and realized I've been given a gift voucher from one of my favourite online boutique shops Button N Thread.
For Christmas, Button N Thread will post your purchases for free if you reside in Australia, New Zealand or Singapore! Plus you'll get a surprise gift :D
Hope you guys will have an awesome (and safe) Christmas! ;)
