What’s your tactic when present purchasing ? 

All in one go ?  Slow accummulation ? Spur of the moment ?

I do a list, which I then completely ignore.  A calendar becomes a DVD box set, a piece of Australiana for an overseas present receiver becomes some retro bit of British tat.

A present (just like a tattoo and a new pair of underpants) must “fit”.  It’s about the moment, rather than the content of the gift.

If you are struggling to come up with a Chrissy pressy for somebody (that’s almost rap) may I suggest you look at the Oxfam Shop in Melbourne’s CBD or go online with the New Internationalist

Keep on shopping !
