“It’s double-breasted,” she explained. “Your mom said you like that style. She told me your measurements, and one of the salesmen helped me pick it out. I hope it fits.”

-- about a gift for paul, a suit. the whole idea of non-money gifts seems silly 2me tho; i can pick something out for me better than sum1 else can. here it's obvious: the suit was bought w/out even being tried on. it could have fit poorly. such behavior is inefficient.

Yeah, very true.

There is a certain 'fun' you can get with material non-money gifts, though. Well, assuming it's something you want--which is why I usually tell people what I want instead of making them guess. One can still have the fun surprise element even when doing this, they just have to give a wider list of stuff they want.
