Christmas Shopping

Why are men so hard to buy for?  Perhaps it’s not all men, but Matt is proving to be difficult this year.  Last year was pretty easy – I ordered his gift (A grill) before Christmas so it wasn’t really a surprise. This year, he tells me that all he wants is socks.  He said he wanted a weather radio so I did order that for him (along with some socks).  We might end up getting each other bikes, but I want to get him something else.  I’m pretty sure he plans to buy me a new Kindle (so he can have my old one) and a new Keurig coffee maker that I can take to school.  I thought about getting him a new Kindle as well, but he says he doesn’t want one.  I thought about getting him a laptop, but I’m not sure if he really wants that either.  He did tell me about a bowflex thing he wanted as well as a slingbox, but I’m not sure about either of those.  I did buy him a nice long sleeved shirt.  I also have book on order that I think he’ll like.   I need to figure this out pretty soon – especially if I order stuff online.  Turns out that two day shipping on Amazon right now is actually 4 day shipping.

Terry and I have been married almost 39 years. Neither of us buys surprise gifts for the other. One may select the gift and the other buys it, but it's always something we really want. Just did this for Terry with a new sweater He picked out what he liked and I ordered it from Banana Republic. I'm not one to order from Amazon.
