Shopping for a Graduation Gift

When it comes to shopping for anything, I am not that great at it.  I guess it is because I have had that “sniper shopper” mentality for most of my life – you know, where you go to a store to buy a specific item and that is it.  No farting around or browsing – just pure efficient shopping.

But becoming a parent changed a lot of those things, and though I hate to admit it, I am a lot better at shopping than I used to be.  For example, when my wife told me to go shop monogrammed gifts for our niece that was graduating college this year, I didn’t even blink – I just went and did what I was told.

Sure, I still don’t make a point to go our shopping just for fun, but in a pinch I can do it.
