I just came across this and thought it was really funny but something which if executed, would save you a lot of money. What's the best thing that you could give someone? Quite obviously it's something that should make them feel good. What better way to make someone feel that way than by telling them some nice things about them? Well, yeah, that's the gist of the matter. Instead of buying gifts, just be there and tell someone how much they mean to you, how devastated you would be without them . . . all that talk that makes someone feel important. And you'll walk away with you wallet still fat . . .
