Talk me out of it! … snooping for gifts

I used to snoop, but then realized it only hurt me in the end because there was no element of surprise when I actually opened the gifts on Christmas, and, worse yet, I would have to pretend to be surprised. And I am so bad/awkward when it comes to acting.

Dreaming42:  I haven’t snooped for Christmas gifts since I was about 12. We always snooped in my Mom’s closet and I found two sweaters. One was so beautiful. I thought the other was ugly. Guess which one I got? Guess which one my sister got?

It wouldn’t have been so heartbreaking if I hadn’t been dreaming of the “beautiful” one so long.

Dreaming42:  I was a snooper growing up. I mastered the art of unwrapping and rewrapping presents. I suck with surprises, so to be honest… if my FI had any gifts for me under the tree, I’m not sure I could contain myself. Anyways… I agree with the PP, it only hurt me in the end because I knew what I was getting. But, that probably still wouldn’t stop me as I’m extremely impatient. All I have to say is try to keep yourself busy with other things, and don’t think about it!

Dreaming42:  I’m a serial snooper and I always end up being somewhat let down on Christmas morning or my birthday, etc. Not because I didn’t get exactly what I wanted, but because I knew I was getting exactly what I wanted, even what I was going to be surprised with. 

As hard as it is, hold off on snooping. It truly pays off in the en.d
