Well everyone....for those that may have remembered, I ended up purchasing a 6 cc taiga wallet for my dad. It was supposed to be his first LV, and I was *soooo* excited to give it to him! We ended up opening presents last night (partially b/c we have so much going on these next few days, and partially b/c i'm the type that can't wait to give ppl presents!). My dad got to go first, and what did he choose to open first? The LV wallet! I was so excited I videotaped him opening it....he smiled at my LV wrapping paper, and carefully opened it b/c he didn't want to rip the ads.....when he saw it was an LV shopping bag, there were no "ohhh's" or "ahhhh's" - no emotion, really. When he finally got to actually opening it and seeing his wallet, he didn't smile, nor did he really say anything.......................so I asked him if he would've preferred it in the brown (I got the black), and he said he'd hafta see it in person. THEN he asked what other options there were...... I turned to elux to show him the Utah wallets and the epi wallet...but I was so disappointed. Needless to say, I was quite disheartened last night b/c I had to go to Holt's/Bloor 4 times to get the wallet in black. I dunno if it sounds selfish, but I kinda wish he at least pretended to be happy about the gift, knowing how much it costed and that my brother and I don't have much money....I don't mind that he would want to exchange it, but it was just disappointing b/c I put so much time and effort into picking it out and there was barely a smile on the face. :s The only good news is that today I think we'll be heading to the LV boutique today as a fam, so my mom was saying we could all pick up a lil something, but they already got my the trevi pm this year, so I'd feel like a bit of a crook having them buy me something else....anywho, just needed to share with my fellow tpf-ers as I didn't want to show my fam I was a bit upset. Hope the rest of your holidays and gift-giving are going well!
