Why didn't I think of this a month ago? Some people on my list are just hard to buy for, and if you ask them for ideas, they'll say something like, "Oh, just surprise me."
Next year at Thanksgiving, everyone is going to get a worksheet. It will include questions like:
My favorite color is ________.
When I shop for myself, my favorite stores are ________.
When I'm not at school/work, I like to _________.
My favorite band is _________.
My favorite type of book is __________.
I like jewelry (circle yes or no).
My favorite games to play are _________ and __________.
My favorite outdoor activity is _____________.
The favorite movie ever is _________________.
If I have an evening all to myself, I like to ______________.
I wish I had more time to ________________.
And so on.
Next October, would someone please remind me to do this and give it to my nieces and nephews and in-laws, so that I'm not trying to come up with ideas on December 18?
