‘Tis the Season Giftgiving isn’t easy. You never know whether the person you got it for will enjoyit or dislike it.
Of course, either way, they are going to act like they likeit. Another thing is you can’t tell if the gift you get is returnable afterChristmas. I know that a lot of people who feel pressured into buyingeveryone gifts. This can lead to spending money that doesn’t need to be spent.There is a much better answer than to buy a gift.
There are so many thingsthat can go wrong. It is hard to give a gift with confidence. I’ve alwayswanted to be a great gift giver. I can imagine it, people opening a gift fromme in all smiles so thankful because they love it so much. Don’t you wish thattoo? I’ve been surrounded by excellent gift givers all my life and none of themhas ever told me the secret.
I don’t give gifts to receive one in return.I personally think a batch of homemade cookies is just as good as an expensivegift card, yet better. For example, let’s say you make someone’s favoritebrownies for them on Christmas. They end up getting you a one-hundred-dollargift card. Guilt starts to arrive in you and you wonder if you should havespent more money than you did on the brownies. But truly, your brownies werefrom the heart and the person who received them from you should treasure thembecause you spent a lot more time than they did getting you a gift card. Butsome people like to spend a lot of people and don’t know what else to get sothey end up with a gift card and that Is more than fine. But in my opinion,homemade gifts are my favorite.
When I was little, every Christmas I made allmy aunts and grandmas bows for their hair and I could tell they all loved them.I saw their faces light up with joy and they still have them kept save to thisday. The thing that matters is that everyone is happy and joy has filled theair. The best part of Christmas is getting to see family you never see, that isby far the best gift anyone can give or get.
