Mission [almost] impossible: buying a Christmas present… For Mario

I am in a very difficult situation (well, I am exaggerating because it is not very difficult, just a little bit), and I bet most of women my age with boyfriends or husbands are feeling that way too. Maybe it is just me, but normally I find it very hard to buy a present for a guy. This time, though, is not any guy… Is Mario, my boyfriend, which makes the looking-for-the-Christmas-present action a very difficult one. I think that his Christmas present will be the result of a lot of observation and knowledge.

They say that if you know you man, you will know what to give him. It is so easy to say it. Mario told me that a gift is something that the person don’t need but will enjoy to have, and that doesn’t make things any easier mostly if your significant other has everything! I am afraid that every year is going to be more challenging than the previous one…

But it isn’t only Mario. Both my father and my brother are very difficult people to give presents to. And I have known them my whole life! This mission can become a real achievement and an intricate game of chess. Maybe I can get Mario something he has never thought of buying… I have to think like him, then…

Anyways, probably is all about observation than just thinking like him. I know his everyday life behavior pretty well, the things he enjoy, the experiences he has had. The mission to buy a Christmas present for Mario can be a challenge – like last year – but it could be a successful mission.
