Shopping for Difficult People

By Nathan Goudie

The holidays can be an exciting time for family and friends to get together and share the magic of the season. But, they can also be stressful if you’re looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones. Shopping can become a hassle if you have no idea what you’re looking for! Luckily for you, the Current OC can make your holiday shopping experience a breeze.

There’s no need to go all the way out to your local mall and buy overpriced gifts. There’s plenty of potential in your hometown. Here in the studio, we’ve broken down your shopping list into four different categories: the mom, the dad, the acquaintance, and the best friend.

Let’s start out with the mom. Remember the movie she was talking about? Grab the book for her instead. If she’s not into reading, then boogie on down to the soap store and look for a bar of soap that you know she’d love. Or, perhaps you could look for a nice bag to get her.

Next is the dad. These are the sporty people that love to fish and grill. Maybe he’s waiting for the next big game. Get that man his favorite team’s shirt. Or, maybe he wants a new spatula for the grill this coming spring.

Then comes the acquaintance. This is the person that you don’t know well enough to get a genuine gift. So, think back to the times that you talked to them. Do they drink coffee everyday? Why not grab them some coffee beans from your local coffee shop? Do you know something they really enjoy? Go get them some merchandise! They’re sure to be surprised by how thoughtful you were!

Last but not least comes the best friend. This person is someone who you are very close to, but they might be a bit picky about the gifts that they get. What’s their favorite kind of music? You could head over to the local music shop and look for a record by their favorite band. Or maybe you could keep your eyes peeled for a nice shirt that is totally their style.

Holiday shopping may seem a little challenging, but with these tips, you’re sure to find the perfect present for everyone this Christmas.
