I've already started purchasing some of my Christmas gifts, as I have seven people to buy for. I have an odd question about a joint Christmas gift for my parents.
Perseus, his cousin, cousin's fiancee and I are going to a local resort town/city for a fondue night date. The fondue consists of a three course meal - bread and multiple cheese fondues, a main course of exotic meats (aligator, etc) or regular game (venison, chicken, pork, etc), and a dessert course of fruit, cake, and chocolate or caramel sauce. My parents have graciously allowed for us to use their condo fifteen minutes in a neighbouring town, rather than pay to stay in a hotel in resort town/city.
Now, I think a gift certificate so my parents can go out would be a great Christmas gift, as this is not something they would purchase for themselves, and they go to their condo often. It's pricey ($50 a person, but you get tons of food), so it would be more than I would normally spend, but well worth it. Is this a good idea, or should I just purchase seperate gifts?
