7 Rules For Spontaneous Gifting

Between growing up Jewish and having a birthday two days before Christmas, it became ingrained in me that holiday presents only happen sometimes. In my world, gifts are never a guarantee, they are a pleasant surprise. Some years, I would get one Hanukkah present, some years I would get 8 and some years, especially when I got older, none. I got a lot of combo holiday/birthday presents. I got a lot of people who skipped over my holiday/ birthday present altogether either because A) who cares about Hanukkah? or B) they were so consumed with the drama of Christmas that they forgot my birthday existed. That’s perfectly understandable. I haven’t been upset about it since middle school. In fact, it birthed my holiday alter ego. Her name is Elfowicz and she is a spontaneous gifter. Keep reading »

Last Friday, the weather was so lovely that I decided to walk home from work. On my way, I stopped by a deli and bought a big bunch of beautiful peonies, my favorite flower. They’re only in season for six weeks and I basically hoard them during that time. So anyway, a few blocks from my apartment, a guy in his early-’20s sidled up next to me and asked, “Who bought you flowers?”

“I bought them for myself,” I replied. Oh lord, what’s this dude want?

“Awwww,” he said with pity in his voice. “That’s so sad. A guy should be buying you flowers. I would.”
