Every year we are lucky enough to be invited to a great White Elephant family party. This was my contribution, and I thought it was perfect: a bulky set of festively decorated taco accoutrement. Like who really needs a taco holder? That only holds 4 tacos? AND comes with a tortilla warmer. This is what makes it the perfect white elephant gift.
I did not count on the fact that Colin had been surreptitiously admiring my unwrapped gift on the dining room table. When his number was called, he STOLE this present from another guest! He asked me to help him hide it so that no one would steal it from him. Never fear, no one did. So I got to take my bulky, festive gift home.
This morning I told Colin, "You know, if we don't use that Taco Set, we can return it, and you can get a gift card to buy whatever you want..." Luckily for me, he was totally sold on this idea. He loves gift cards, and got himself a new Bakugon and a notebook.
So much easier to find room for that than the fiesta set!
