When the form was passed to me, I easily filled up my space with likes (lotions, note-cards, stickers, dark chocolate) and don't likes (Santa's & milk chocolate). Then I took in what my receiver had written:
That's it? That's all you got? Sigh...
I thought really hard about things I've noticed about her: she is forever eating TicTacs. She does not wear make up, hair accessories, or bracelets. Because we work at a gym I've only seen her in regular clothes once. She drives a Volvo, has four children, and an unemployed husband.
This week we are supposed to leave small gifts for our receiver and on Saturday present her with the big gift (no more than $20). Thus far this week I have given her a Christmas bag that contained Christmas socks (sheepish plug for my give-a-way hint hint hint) and a multi-pack of TicTacs and another bag with two cute bell tree ornaments (one Santa, one snowman). Today's bag features a candle and a diet coke. I have one more gift, which is a very pretty choker necklace that I think she'll like since I saw her wearing a similar one a couple months ago.
Yet, I haven't purchased the BIG gift. What the heck do I buy? I thought about a gift certificate to get her nails done because she mentioned once that she liked to do that but couldn't afford it (and who can in these trying times!).
If ya'll have any thoughts, throw them out. It's Wednesday and I've only got a few more days to find the perfect Secret Santa gift.
