Buying Stuff is Easy. Gifting is Hard.

“O all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest. Everywhere they are wisest. They are the magi.”
O. Henry, The Gift of the Magi

Dear Loved One,

I’m sorry. I’m sorry for every time my gift was strictly worse than handing you a partially torn $20 bill that was crumpled up in my back pocket.

Buying stuff is so easy.  I can go from forgetting you exist to having PrimeNow drop a *insert-lame-gift-here* off at your doorstep in 2 hours.  Everyone knows this.  It took me no thought, effort and communicated nothing special.

There was a moment, 2 months ago, when compassion and clarity struck and I thought of the PERFECT gift for you.  I smelled nachos and quickly lost my epiphany.  I still can’t remember that idea, but I PROMISE it was there.

You are my *right person*.   I vow to use Gyfter going forward to demonstrate my care by giving you the *right gift* at the *right time*.

They won’t let me mess up.

– Every Bad Gifter
