‘Tis the Season
giving isn’t easy. You never know whether the person you got it for will enjoy
it or dislike it. Of course, either way, they are going to act like they like
it. Another thing is you can’t tell if the gift you get is returnable after
Christmas. I know that a lot of people who feel pressured into buying
everyone 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 things
that can go wrong. It is hard to give a gift with confidence. I’ve always
wanted to be a great gift giver. I can imagine it, people opening a gift from
me in all smiles so thankful because they love it so much. Don’t you wish that
too? I’ve been surrounded by excellent gift givers all my life and none of them
has 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 expensive
gift card, yet better. For example, let’s say you make someone’s favorite
brownies for them on Christmas. They end up getting you a one-hundred-dollar
gift card. Guilt starts to arrive in you and you wonder if you should have
spent more money than you did on the brownies. But truly, your brownies were
from the heart and the person who received them from you should treasure them
because you spent a lot more time than they did getting you a gift card. But
some people like to spend a lot of people and don’t know what else to get so
they 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 all
my 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 this
day. The thing that matters is that everyone is happy and joy has filled the
air. The best part of Christmas is getting to see family you never see, that is
by far the best gift anyone can give or get.
