Not that one…
As I said in an earlier post, I think the key to My Make Do and Mend Year is going to be planning ahead, and this applies doubly to Christmas.
So, when I saw a jumper in a charity shop, I thought it would be just right for a lucky someone on my Christmas present list. (I would post a picture, but then the person in question’s Christmas would obviously be ruined if they got a sneak preview.)
BUT, although I love seeking out all kinds of thrifty finds in charity shops, I ‘m still not really sure how I feel about giving someone a present from a charity shop…
Does it cross the line from thrifty to tight..? Does it imply a lack of love, or is that part of the whole consumer culture-thinking you have to spend lots of money on a present in order for it be any good…?
Any thoughts on this one? How would you feel if you got a present from a charity shop this Christmas? Let me know.
