Xmas shopping is nearly done. Yay. I just sucked it up and hopped online last night and clicked away. The only person who's getting something that's not ordered yet is my mother. She's always a last-week-before-Xmas sort of buy. She is nearly impossible to shop for--and I refuse to cave in and just resort to gift cards. She never wants anything. She always deflects by saying "Save your money, I don't need anything." What do you do with a mother like that? I should confess, as Brian can confirm, I have a variation of the same behavior: "I don't really want anything." Usually if pressed, I just say books.
