My oldest daughter got her first job last summer and this was the first year she’s ever bought Christmas gifts for the family on her own. I might be a little bit biased, but I think she did a wonderful job. Over the summer, I had casually mentioned that I needed a new slow cooker and she bought me a brand new Crock-Pot for Christmas. She even picked the perfect one without know what kind I wanted.
