I'm not usually one to complain about shopping, but the past 3 weeks have been insane! In a 24 hr period I am only doing one of the following: sleeping, working or SHOPPING!
Not only have I been shopping for my own family and inlaws, but I am also doing all of the shopping for our company party at work. This requires purchasing 25 gifts (unisex gifts) and trying to stay between $30-$35. In my mind this seemed like such a simple task....boy was I wrong!!!
For one thing, gifts are either geared towards a male or geared towards a female. Purchasing something that both gendors would enjoy is nearly impossible.
Secondly, most gifts are priced at either $20 or upwards of $40. Finding 25 items that fall around $30 gives you slim pickin's. And evidently, it is frowned upon if you buy duplicate items in order to get to your desired spending amount.
I am currently 7 gifts away from finishing this task and I am stumped. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
