I am not ashamed to admit that I am a baby boomer (aged 60) and how times have changed with the giving of gifts at Christmas.
Socks, Jocks and Hankies:

Back when I was a kid the go to present was socks, jocks (underwear) and hankies (handkerchiefs). When you received them you politely smiled and said thank you. But inside you were thinking boring.
What gift to buy?

If you are like me, you hate shopping and making decisions as to what to buy for each person. Never knowing whether the person receiving the gift will like the gift, use the gift, re-gift the gift, throw the gift away or take the gift back to the store of purchase for cash.

Then gift cards came around. Easy peasy. No thought involved but impersonal. If the gift card went missing it was your loss or if you placed in your wallet / purse for over a year they expired. Loser.

The GOTO present for Christmas now is to buy an EXPERIENCE! Recently my son and partner gifted us with an experience: Gold Coast Buffet Lunch Sightseeing Cruise – Surfers Paradise for myself and wife. We had a great time with food, sightseeing and meeting other folk relaxing and enjoying themselves just like us. Will I remember the gift? YES. Will I remember who gave the gift? YES.
