Christmas Presence

Santa on his way to work...I just got home from the office Christmas party, and I am pleased to report that my Secret Santa got me a really cool Cinnamon scented candle—I’m looking forward to lighting it, just not tonight.

A lot of people got some neat gifts, but there was one present that could be read as either sincere or sarcastic. The recipient read it as sincere; I read it as sarcastic. Had I received it, I would have been mortified.

I actually spent quite a bit of time looking for the present I bought my recipient. The only “office” rule was that we couldn’t spend more than 5€. Dietary restrictions for my recipient made buying food impractical, at best, and I didn’t want to buy anything that screamed “The Netherlands,” so I had to buy something cute and non-location specific. I finally spied the item after visiting a couple shops and doing a lot of thinking—and it came in at 4,95€!
