NaBloPoMo’09: Christmas Conundrum

I have a Christmas Conundrum.

I have about three people in my life who are impossible to buy for.  They either have everything they want, don’t need anything, or have no interests or hobbies of their own which make it easy to buy for them.  I know that last year, I did okay, but this year, I’m at a total loss.

I think I’m going to send these people’s Significant Other (or someone who knows what they want) out shopping, get the difficult recipient the gift they want, stick my name on it, and I’ll cut the buyer a check.  It just seems easier.

Am I breaking the spirit of Christmas law doing this?  Everyone gets what they want, there’s no particular disappointment involved, what’s the harm?
