“I was really excited about exchanging Christmas gifts with my family last year. I secretly wished and placed hints here and there that I wanted a super cool hair straightener I saw on TV - great design, a lot of different features and a special ceramic coating….apparently my husband thought it would be much better to give me a digital bathroom scale… I didn’t speak to him till Easter!”
“Who wouldn’t like a luxury encyclopedia, I thought! And then my sister goes: Ohh ough this book?! A friend of mine has it and told me just the other day it’s so lame that I should never ever read a page of it…” This for sure will be an unforgettable 100 Euro Christmas gift...FOR ME!”

“It was the first Christmas with my sweetheart and I so much wanted to make a good impression! I heard her saying to her mom that she desperately needs a blender. This is it, I thought! She’ll love it! I got her the most beautiful, pink, top grade blender....and I would never forget the disappointment on her face!"
“Do you know how embarrassing it is to go to work and find out you just forgot today is the secret Santa day! And just when you think it couldn’t get worse, you realize that secret Santa is not so secret and at the end everybody knows that YOU are the “no gift” person...I wish I knew about iCard last Christmas!”
“Speaking of awkward...I spent 3 weeks knitting a beautiful wool vest for my daughter that I saw in a commercial and I decided I will make it for her. Whatta surprise to see her on Christmas eve wearing the very same wool vest in the very same colors….plus, mine didn’t quite fit…”
