Behka’s Gift Ideas: The Gift of Learning

Kids, if you're like me, you kind of struggle when it comes to finding gift ideas.  I mean, there's only so many times you can give a gift basket of cheeses before it starts to become a joke.

So what do you get for the person who tells you, "Don't buy me anything!"  That person who doesn't really NEED anything, and they'd feel bad if you bought them something kind of extravagant or something frivolous?   Why not get them a different kind of gift certificate?

What City Do You Go To for Christmas Shopping? [POLL]

We are less than 20 days away from Christmas, and the retail industry is still abuzz over much improved sales over 2011. This week I visited several stores to get my Christmas shopping started.  All of the store employees I talked to all said business was staying brisk this year. It got me to thinking; when you go holiday shopping, what city do you like to go shopping in?

What’s Happening in Sedalia on Christmas Day? [SURVEY]

My wife and I are just moved to Sedalia this last summer, and we'll be spending our first Christmas in Sedalia this year.

Be Careful: Buying a Bad Gift Can Cause A Fight [SURVEY]

I was talking with Sammy Kershaw this morning about Christmas gifts.  We were reminiscing about the time when we had to put actual thought into the presents we bought for people.  We had to pay attention to their likes and dislikes and find the gift that would tell them that we cared enough to know they would enjoy having that item.  Today we seem to be all about cash and gift cards.  Those items seem very impersonal to me.  Giving them seems to say "I don't know anything about you, but you're on my Christmas list. So here ya go."

Seriously? Behka Doesn’t Want a Christmas Tree?

We were in a meeting and talking about all things Christmas when the topic of trees came up.  I mentioned that I am actually putting a tree up this year.  Behka mentioned that she didn't have one.  I remembered that she lived in the Mark Twain Apartments and thought she may have lost hers in the fire, so I offered her a small fiber optic tree that someone gave me last year.  She refused it saying she didn't want a tree.  I was aghast! I had no idea she was a "Scrooge".
