You know who I’m talking about… You’re invited to the birthday party of the boyfriend of your third cousin, once removed. Or you just really don’t know that girl who sits next to you in math very well, but you get invited to her birthday celebration anyways. You know about enough information about them to fill the thimble token from a Monopoly game and honestly, you don’t want to be the one that just shows up with a birthday card and a twenty dollar bill. Granted, this list isn’t confined to just birthdays, it can be adapted to other gift-giving occasions as well.
