A couple of weeks ago, I took the American Express Gifting Quiz on Facebook and found out I was a “Creative Gifter”. Usually that’s true- I like to take time to find the perfect gift, or combination of gifts (the big gift+2 medium gifts+ 5 stocking stuffers+candy) but this year with a baby, I spent my scant time on research and I haven’t had time for the actual gift-buying. Uh oh. I just took the quiz again, in my present frame of mind, and it’s confirmed: “LAST MINUTE GIFTER”.

What kind of gifter are you? I just took this American Express quiz which says I’m a “creative” gifter. I think this is accurate if that means I think about gifts for ages, dog-ear catalogs and magazines, ask questions all year, and then hurriedly try to get the gifts starting on about, oh December 21st, when I have to pay as much for express shipping as I do for the gifts. American Express has developed a “shopping personality program” to help people like me (and like most people, I think) who have shopping personality disorder. American Express would like to help people shop smarter, and better manage their gift budgets. American Express has challenged me to be the best “creative gifter” I can be, and so with 150,000 American Express Gold membership points. I am going to try and get the perfect gifts for my sister, husband, niece, nephew, and son. My challenge, obviously, will be learning to be creative while getting really nice gifts for a lot of people. This is my problem- I tend to overspend for one or two people and end up short-changing others because I haven’t thought about my budget. This year will be different.
