I don't really believe in getting presents, mostly because I think that it's impossible to get somebody a present without making somebody else feel slighted. Half the time, people don't even want what you got them.
Case in point, I was recently pressured to go in on a Christmas present for a coworker. Except if I get a present for this person, there are at least eight other people who would feel slighted if I didn't get them a present. So now I have to figure out what to do for eight other people. And there are probably a bunch of other people that I'm not even thinking of right now who will also be insulted. This is really stressing me out, considering I usually just bring some treats for everyone to share.
Not to mention like 10 teachers and daycare workers that I have to get stuff for...
I think people should only give presents to children, and everything else should be communal baked goods.
