Christmas Gifts.

Christmas. Today, it’s 69 (ooo-err!) day’s until the day we all wake up, and sit in our jimmies opening various presents in front of the fir-blaah blah blah.
My parents own a pub, so I’ve always known Christmas to be the day that my parents are too busy working for christmas,and we would open our presents in the evening with Dad’s rhythmic snoring in the background after a few too many sherries and more than his share of mince pies. Although the pretty lights and novelty decorations are equally exciting factors of Christmas, most people agree that the gifts old saint nick brings us the night before is the most exciting part. Now, it’s easy to ask for the presents, a new phone, laptop, ipad (mostly technical items, have you noticed?) But when it comes to buying people gifts, it can leave a lot of people like me stumped.
Especially Boys, what the hell do you get them? If they come from a completely planet like often said, how are you meant to know what they like or want for christmas? You could go all simple, such as chocolate or deodorant, or even clothes. If you want something special or a significantly good present I have absolutley no idea where to start, and to be perfectly honest, have great difficulty deciding what to get my boyfriend this year.
Christmas in my house wouldn’t happen without my mum. She decorates the house, cooks the dinner, buys the presents, wraps the presents…etc etc. I don’t know whether my dad’s just a lazy one (which, when it comes to family he is) but my mum does everything, anyway. Therefore, I like to give her something special each year. Last year, (feel free to take my idea..;) ) I wrapped up various things, (I bought her a coat she liked, but didn’t buy to save money, some fluffy socks, some bath things, a pretty candle,a nice pair of earrings…) And wrapped them up seperatley, and labelled them ‘to my taxi driver’ ‘to my cook’ ‘to my cleaner’ ‘to my bestfriend’ etc.. So she had lots to open. 🙂 but this year, I don’t know how I’m going to top it…
