As we ease past the gifting frenzy of Christmas, it can be tempting to think that we’re off the hook. Then the birthdays begin to roll in, spreading across the year – and we realise it never stops.
The feeling of puzzling bewilderment as we try to figure out what to buy our friends for their respective birthdays is familiar – but it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. It’s especially tough in the first part of the year, when you exhausted your last good idea for their Christmas gift.
Of course, your imagination is not the only thing that gets exhausted over Christmas – your funds do, too. January and February are generally quite tight months while we give our purse a chance to recover, allowing our debit card to return to a normal temperature. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to ask friends to move their birthdays to a more convenient time of year, so what do you do?

The options in this realm are endless. There’s novelty gifts aplenty – office toys, bobbleheads, pencil sets with quotes from their favourite movies – the list is endless. If you go for something with a personal touch, it’s likely going to end up meaning more anyway.
