The most important thing about gifts is the thought, isn't it? That is what we have been taught - but for a lot of people, the thought is the hardest part. Lookikng round the shops for something your friends and family will love can be exhausting. But with the Pandora bracelets, even though the beads can be quite expensive, you do not have to think about it, you do not need inspriation, or to spend hours looking in shops - and if there are three of four of you in the same family who collect the beads, even better! you can get four presents out of the way in one easy trip!
Now if you like these sorts of things then that is great, but it can be extremely frustrating and sometimes hurtful to recieve gifts that, even though they may be a bit pricey, have no element of thought behind them. My brother for YEARS and YEARS bought me a box of bath bombs for Christmas and birthdays - the really big boxes, that did cost quite a lot of money, but i did not like them and never used them. I would give them away. And it started to really hurt my feelings that my brother cared so little about what to give me, about getting me a gift that I would like when i always put in so much effort in getting him something nice; even if i had liked them, it would have upset me, i tihnk, that instad of trying to put some thought and effort into what he got me he just got me the same thing time and time again....... in the end, i put a stop to any present buying altogether! I have to admit, i enjoy the festive season a lot more because of it!
