My parents are extremely difficult to shop for, which makes the holiday season challenging.
My parents don’t like to fill their home with knick knacks or random things and they especially don’t like clutter. They have expensive taste and would much rather enjoy an experience together, but they’ve been everywhere and travel arrangements can be expensive as a gift. My brother and I are always scrounging for gift ideas when the holidays roll around. Sometimes, we have to go in on a gift together because one more expensive gift is better than two cheaper gifts that they won’t like. This year, I discovered the perfect gift for them and I was thrilled to get my brother on board. During an evening of online holiday shopping, I saw a picture of an at home air purifier. It was state of the art and it claimed to be one of the best air purifiers on the market. The price was high, but there were thousands of reviews, all of them glowing. My parents were older and they were constantly complaining about the air quality in their home. They hired an HVAC technician twice per year to service their HVAC system, but it was never enough. Even though the HVAC system ran efficiently, my parents still weren’t happy with the air quality. An at home air purifier would be really beneficial for them because it would remove extra pollutants from the air and along with airborne illnesses. When I told my brother about the air purifier, he agreed to split the price with me because he thought my parents would enjoy it as well.
