We're broke, and DH does not enjoy gift shopping at all. If you want to go shopping at a store, rather than find out what you would like, he will hand you money or a gift certificate to that store, and tell you to have at it. He's not stingy, but he hates shopping for much of anything beyond his own esoteric stuff. In addition, I am Very Difficult to book shop for, and that's nearly my ultimate gift.
So. He uses American Express, which gives points, which can be redeemed for Barns & Noble gift certificates. I just had a fantastic
time shopping (it would have been even more fun if I liked their web site more, I think it's Not The Best
), I spent $3 more than my certificates of Guilt Free Book Money, and I have 15 books coming in the mail! This is going to be SUCH a blast.
(hopping up and down with glee)
Some of them are coming from the next county over, a few more are instate, and some are from the other side of the country. They will be trickling in for a few weeks. THIS is SO MUCH FUN for me!
