You don’t want to wait to last minute to buy your present, don’t you? Is there anything worse than needing to come up with a new idea for a gift in the last days before Christmas because the gift that you originally planned has already sold out? Your father really doesn’t want another pair of socks, and if you don’t start early enough that is what he is going to get.
