This year I’m going to do everything different! No more last minute rushing around to get the Christmas gifts for the kids! This year, I’ll start rushing around in november!
My criteria for Christmas presents
When I pick Christmas gifts for my kids I have certain criteria.
- I like them to be educational
- I like them to be cheap
- I like them to be made from wood
- I like them to be sensible and useful, like pajamas and warm socks
- I like them to stimulate my kids’ development like books
Unfortunately my kids’ criteria are totally different.
My kids’ criteria for Christmas presents
- It has to be noisy
- It has to be colourful
- It has to have a screen
- If it doesn’t have a screen, it should be something you can úse with a screen like dvd’s, WII games and Nintendo games
- Price should be no object
Can you see why their might be some tension between me and my kids?
Determine the personality, then pick the present
So I was surfing the internet looking for gifts that would match both mine and my kids’ criteria, when I stumbled on Cotswold Outdoor. They’ve got this handy gadget, that helps you shop for a certain personality. It’s called Presents with Personality. There are 9 nine types of personalities to pick and choose from, and I clicked on Gadget Geek. Because let’s face it, that’s what my kids are…
I had fun determining which personality type I am, and I turn out to be A Free Spirit! I like that.
The 9 Personality types are
- A Winter wanderer
- A Gadget freak
- A Keen Traveller
- A Free Spirit
- An intrepid Hiker
- A Big Kid
- A Mountaineer
- A Wild Camper
- A Snow seeker
Unfortunately my husband’s personality wasn’t in there. They forgot the Couch Potato.
Which personality type are you?
