116 - Buying a Gift

This English learning podcast is about shopping for someone and buying them a gift.


A:  What are you getting dad for his birthday?

B:  I don’t know yet.  He’s really hard to shop for.  He seems to already have everything he wants.

A:  How about we get him a joint gift.  I saw these really cool noise cancellation headphones that I think he’ll like for the airplane or to use when mom is cleaning the house.

B:  A joint gift is a good idea, but isn’t that noise cancellation thing a gimmick?

A:  No.  I tried them on in the store and they really work.  I checked into it though and I saw that they had the same ones for much cheaper on amazon.  If we order them now they will arrive before dad’s birthday. 

B:   Are they the ear buds or the big ones that cover the whole ear?

A:   I think we should get the big ones.  Dad’s weird about putting things in his ears.

B:  Sounds good.  How about you put them on your credit card and I’ll give you the cash for them.

A:  Ok.
