I do not like buying things for people, just not my bag. Everyone already has a abundance of plastic crap that is going to get tossed in a closet and forgotten, I would rather get people something that may be of some value or at least is creative.
I often make caramel popcorn for the nephews as they really love the stuff, and I know exactly where it goes, and none of it goes to waste.
For my sisters I am doing paintings. Just medium sized oil paintings.
Of course there are issues with doing oil paintings within a time-frame.
Oil paints don’t dry on a convenient schedule. They take forever to cure, like weeks….
As a result there may be some “here is a picture of what you will be getting when it finally is dry” action going on this year…
Tis the season.
