Merry Christmas, Already?!
I know you haven't even finished your Halloween candy yet, but thanks to the media and major merchandisers, the Christmas Holiday season is upon us!
This means that, even in these shaky economic times, we must start thinking about what gifts to purchase for our nearest and/or dearest. Giving someone you care about a gift they will enjoy is a wonderful thing. Getting a gift you want is even better!
What to get them, though? Sure, you could drive to your local mall and wander around forever looking for just the right item that will tickle the fancy of your recipient. There is, however, an easier way.
Ask your friend/relation/boss what they want, and buy it for them at Amazon.com! Amazon has everything that the mall has, but at much more reasonable prices. True, you may have to pay for shipping, but isn't shelling out a few extra bucks worth avoiding the "atmosphere" of your local mall during the Christmas season? Unless you are a fan of screaming children, crowded food courts and relentless Holiday Muzak, Amazon is the way to go. One nice perk of shopping at Amazon, is that you can do it in the privacy of your own home, in your underwear. Shopping in your underwear is a sublime pleasure, but I can tell you from experience, it is frowned upon at most major shopping centers.
Another benefit of shopping at Amazon, is that, if you click to it from the link on this site and order something, I will get money! As a regular reader of this blog, I'm sure this matters to you.
Wherever and whenever you do your Holiday shopping though, get out there and do it! You don't want to be wandering around the mall at 3 P.M. on Christmas Eve looking for a gift for Auntie Gin at the "As Seen on TV" store.
If you're there, though, I'd love a Slap-Shot™.
