Illustration for article titled Uncle Put More Thought Than Usual Into This Year’s Gift Cards

HERSHEY, PA—Noting the unprecedented display of effort, Harrington family sources confirmed Thursday that Uncle Jeff put a lot more thought than usual into the gift cards he bought for everyone this Christmas. “Wow, he really must have spent a lot of time at Target picking out just the right prepaid gift card for every member of the family,” said niece Tamara Harrington, adding that it was a vast improvement over last year, when the entire family received $10 gift cards to Ruby Tuesday. “It seems like he actually thought about things that we like. He knows I enjoy reading, so he got me a Barnes & Noble gift card. And he got my younger brother a Best Buy gift card, because he’s really into computers, video games, and that stuff. He just gave my sister a generic Visa gift card, but she’s always been hard to shop for.” Sources confirmed that Uncle Jeff also showed an unheard-of attention to detail this year by bringing a tub of Cool Whip to go along with the store-bought pumpkin pie that he contributed to Christmas dinner.
