Christmas is coming, and I’ve realized that I’m pretty terrible at choosing gifts. My family was not big on celebrations or frivolous gifts. The gifts I received were always practical, bought on a deal, and/or rarely made me feel special. On the bright side, I got a lot of use out of practical gifts, and I’m not complaining.
However, in the last couple of years I’ve received some gifts that were either totally impractical or expensive. They were also well chosen and made me feel special! This got me thinking: what is the difference between the gifts of my past and these gifts? Of course I did some research, and this post is what I came up with.
Thinking about gifts has certainly made gift shopping more fun – I no longer agonize over it and hopefully I won’t give more crappy gifts. I hope this week’s topic helps you as you do your holiday shopping this year!
