I'm not into Christmas much other than friends & family hangout sessions. Food, fun and rum with egg nog

For those I do shop for, I tend to buy random things on impulse like this item I saw today.

Spoiler!


Never knew this existed till today. They have a Muhammad Ali version as well.

It's for my brother. He's a huge SF fan.

Got it from London Drugs. Was on special, too. Based on the signage, I'd say it's a one time thing (no rain checks / while supplies last).

I ended up getting my sis a fake black fur coat, 4 vintage jadeite cups from the 1950's and this on a shirt since she's a straight G



I bought my mom a wine rack, cook book and a real cook mandolin(food slicer for cooking)

my dad I bought him a box of wine (he likes boxed wine lol) a cook book about sausage making, a polish sausage making kit, meat grinder for his kitchen aid, sausage making attachment for the meat grinder and a whisk...

Not bad in getting all of this in a day and not having a clue what to do

Chromecast is 29$ at various outlets, a nice affordable useful gift imo.

Kinda off topic but I didn't want to start a new thread.

I bought some gifts today at Oakridge and went to the gift wrap centre. I had a carry on size luggage and a small box to be wrapped (total 2 items). I asked the guy before wrapping it how much it would be and he said its by donation. I thought ok cool so I drop of the gifts for wrapping and come back 20 minutes later.

When I pick up the 2 items the man asked me for $14...I told him I thought it was by donation so I was just going to give like $5-7 for it since its just 2 items and I could of wrapped them myself.

The man said he charges by size blah blah, I didn't want to make a big fuss since there was a line behind me and I guess it goes to a charitable cause but it seems really unfair to ask people for money like that. I already have $7 out for the 2 items which I felt was fair for the wrapping and now I pretty much paid double that amount.

Do all gift wrap places do this? This is my first time using a gift wrap service as we usually wrap it ourselves.

Friend used to volunteer there. She said they have a sign somewhere with a list of suggested donations by size per gift. Seems most people donate 2-5$ per gift pending size. Maybe 10$ if it was bigger box / complicated angles / custom box. Guy was pushy for whatever reason in your case; haven't ever seen them state a price specifically unless you asked. They usually just refer you to the sign they have if you ask though.
