The Quasi-Heartbreak of Giving Great Gifts
There is that familiar moment that occurs in early December. The presents that you have ordered arrive, ready to be wrapped. And for that day, you can see them all together, and they look fabulous.
One is struck for just a moment with that thought, "What if I just kept them all? I could hoard them in my middle drawer. No one would know. And every day I could look at them."
The moment then passes. And it is back to wrapping, looking up addresses and writing cards.
