Thanksgiving is the best. I lost the test but whatever we all got drunk as **** then I went Black Friday shopping drunk out of my mind. I bought something for $100 and don't even know what it was. Luckily, I was not arrested. Win.
Buying for my mom is hard as hell. 2 years ago was a Coach bag. Last year was Kindle Fire. This year?? No clue.
It used to be easy when I was a little kid. I got my mom the strangest crap, but she loved. Different years, but I got her a door stop with penguins on it (thought it was a pillow), tire wax, a note pad with the letter G on it (her name starts with a J), and a coffee mug with Donald Duck on it. Really weird and random gifts, but she loved them and still has them (well except the tire wax, she's used that).
