App e-Christmas

The most popular expressions at Christmas have to be ‘Season’s Greetings’, ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘I’m just going to get all my presents on Amazon this year.’
The latter is a bloke solution to Christmas shopping whether it’s applied to not being arsed or getting everything cheaper. That blokey attitude goes all the way back to the Three Wise Men. Namely, just buy anything remotely in the area of what might be acceptable, around the theme of a package with something in it. (CLICK ON 'Read more' LINK, BELOW)


‘Get some gold – everyone likes gold,’ they would have agreed. And a couple of other things; a couple of stocking fillers. So they do their shopping last minute and meet up briefly before setting off: ‘What did you get?... Really? What’s that?... ‘Frankin-what’ and what?... Doesn’t matter – they can always take it back. You did get a receipt?’
Blokes’ way of thinking is that it’ll be alright as long as you get something, it’s a bloody present isn’t it? It’s the getting, not the giving. The receiver’s going to say it’s just what they always wanted anyway. Result. Merry Christmas.
Amazon has a ‘Customers who viewed this also viewed’ section on their website, marketing items similar to the ones you checked out on their site. They could go further and tap into another blokey sentiment at Christmas; introduce another section titled ‘Here’s some things that you like that you could gift your loved ones and use if they don’t like them’.
