I am not good at buying presents. I always fret too much and cannot buy anything that I like and think will be a good gift for someone. Luckily for me, we don’t really give presents here on birthdays or another occasion like a holiday / festival (unless you count getting clothes on Onam or Vishu) like Christmas and most Western countries. I would be terrible at it!
The last few times I have bought gifts were for Christmas / New Year and Secret Santa type of gifts. I bought a wallet and a specific coffee mug for a guy I barely knew at work in 2017. This season it was a colleague I know well but not enough to know what she likes and dislikes. Someone else suggested a clutch or books as she is a reader but I don’t know what books she likes and I don’t know anything about women’s handbags. So I went on my usual type of gift when it comes to girls. I got her a teddy bear kinda thing (it was a dog) and she loved it a lot.
Someone who is very close to me is getting married on Feb 1st and I wanted to get her a gift. I won’t be able to go for the wedding as I will be working. But I kept searching online for gifts that I could buy for her. Although I looked at vases and floor lamps, I finally settled on this watch that you see here. I hope she likes it!
