I usually give practical gifts

It's not easy for me, a girl, to buy gifts for guys, even if I've known them all my life. Last Christmas, I had to wrack my brains thinking of a unique gift for my brother who's into guitars, basketball (I'm not, so I really do not know what to buy) and gadgets (I am, but these are certainly way out of my budget) and another one for my other other brother who has other interests which I do not share.

In the end, I went for practical.  While toiletries are not exciting gifts and are really downright boring, I can be sure that they will use them.  And they did.  I saw that the shampoo and soap that I've given my brother is now being used.  So, they are not a waste of money or dust gatherers just there without any use and just occupying precious space.  Are they happy with my unexciting gifts?  Well, they are satisfied and grateful.  And that is good enough for me.
