Gift Guide for the Fam-Bam

The hardest people to buy for is, hands-down, my family.  There is always the expectation of greatness since you know them so well, and the lack of manners because…well, they do know you so well they can be impolite.  My Mother is a notorious returner.  I can’t remember a single present I gave her that she didn’t return or give back to one of us kids. My dad is a man of very little words, so he would never tell us if he didn’t like something.

My sister and cousins are the best to buy for.  They are completely honest with me and tell me what they want ahead of time.  I like to spin it from there and then surprise them with even more goodies, including inside jokes!
