My son had to bring his girlfriend to introduce her to us. I got her all ready and bought her a present. A nice bag and a scarf.
When they got home, I brought the gift and gave it to my future daughter-in-law. She immediately opened it to look at it. I was sure she would love it. She pulled out the bag and said it was a very nice thing but I only use branded things.
I said that you can’t surprise anyone with neither branded stuff or clothes. Now you can surprise someone with your brain and cleverness.
