On the Street

Who is the hardest person to shop for during the holidays?


ALICIA HEISER

I guess my mom. She's pretty picky.
How so?
She just has really particular tastes. So a lot of times it's just good to go shopping with her and have her tell me what she likes.
Have you ever returned something you bought her?
Last year I got her a pot for her kitchen and she had to return it.


PETER MARTIN

My wife. She's so particular. I stay away from clothing.
Why clothing?
It's not what she wants. What I think she wants, she doesn't want.
So what do you usually get her?
I usually give her money and tell her to go get it herself.


AMY LINDSEY

My mother-in-law. She's picky.
How so?
She's not afraid to tell you that she doesn't like something, ya know?



MANUEL GUERRERO

My mom because she's a woman — that's just by default harder for me to figure out — and she also has money, so there's nothing I can buy her that she can't buy herself.
What do you end up doing for a gift?
Asking one of my older sisters what they would get her.


CAITLYN JENSON

Probably my little sister because she has a very picky taste in clothes.
How so?
She likes expensive things, so that's always picky of her. She always costs extra.
So how do you approach someone with expensive tastes?
I just get her one thing instead of multiple.
