Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? No? Well, you are not alone! Now is crunch-time and consumers fill the malls looking for that perfect gift for friends and family, near and far. I think there comes a point where many people just kind of run out of ideas, and as the weather turns colder, many people find themselves suffering from GAD* (gift anxiety disorder).
Could you be afflicted? Symptoms include:
- Paper cuts from flipping through too many catalogs
- Carpal tunnel syndrome from too much Amazon browsing
- Memory loss – “Does Jill like Katy Perry or Steve Perry?” “Does dad even know how to play golf?” “What are my kids’ names???”
- Bruising from elbowing your way through crowded malls
and I’ll add my own symptoms to this list:
- Now that my son is 21, what size shoe does he wear?
- Last week Liz liked a certain band, but I don’t know if she still likes them or not!
- Will my kids think this is cool or dumb?
- My husband has a garage full of tools…but does he have a all-in-one tool? I just don’t know!
Luckily, this affliction is not without a cure. This holiday season, InComm, the leading prepaid gift card provider, is offering the following treatment for GAD:

*Of course GAD is not a real medical disorder
