A Great Christmas Gift

Jeopardy! board from the SNES versions.

Sometimes we spend a lot of time thinking about what we want to give to that certain someone. Maybe they have everything, or you can’t decide what to get since your budget is limited. I was wanting to buy something really cool for my husband this past Christmas, but had no idea what to get him. He doesn’t like anyone to buy him clothes. He prefers buying his own things. He’ll ask for gift certificates, but is very specific on what he wants. I wanted to surprise him with something he’d really like and something he wouldn’t think of for himself, but I only had $20 to spend! What a dilemma! My daughter and I play games on the Wii, and hubby had played crosswords with us and Trivial Pursuit.  It is the one time all three of us spend time together. One of his favorite tv game shows is Jeopardy and when I started thinking about his gift, Jeopardy was not published for the Wii yet. Time passed, the holidays grew closer, and I still hadn’t decided what to buy. I finally decided to look seriously for an idea and went to gamestop.com to see what they had. Lo and behold! Jeopardy was now offered for the Wii!  Hooray! I snatched one up for hubby and felt quite pleased with myself. I can now report, it was the best gift I ever picked out for him! He loved it, and we have played at least three Sunday evenings since Christmas! It has been a family fun time together that leaves great memories. A wonderful success!

    That’s very nice, I suck at giving out gifts to people on events like these, even on birthdays, so I most of the time end up just giving a card, and if it’s for a child, I put a voucher in it or some little cash. It’s kind of different here in my place since they don’t really care much about material things, It’s all about the cards that show how you remember them on these occasions.
