A couple days back, I sat down to do my Christmas shopping. I'm not a big fan of shopping, but I do somewhat enjoy doing shopping for this one occasion, if only because I know I can it all in one place: Amazon. Plus, I've put in time over the preceding months marking off ideas for what to get people. This means the process should be relatively quick and painless. I went about gingerly putting items in the basket, along with my co-worker who decided now was the time to get hers done as well. I decided to get a Kindle for my aunt (shh...) and there was a checkbox for getting the power adapter and a $10 gift card for books for it so I went ahead and got those as well. We were going along at a good pace, and my co-worker finished up her shopping before I did. Finally, about 3 hours later, everything was ready to go with about $500 of gifts in my basket ready to be bought and sent. I put gift notes on each item, and proceeded along to what I thought would be the finishing step.
