- I have a gift-giving etiquette issue I'm looking for advice on. I'm a little leery about buying friends subscriptions or memberships for magazine/museums/etc as Xmas presents, even if I think they'll enjoy them, because they run out after a year, and then said friend is sort of under pressure to spend the money themselves to renew them. I feel like I'm putting them under something of an obligation to do so. Of course I could renew it myself for ever, but maybe I won't want to do that. Any opinions?
Gifts that don't keep on giving?
