Countdown to Christmas: Day 8

How’s everyone out there doing on their Christmas shopping? 

I’m about 80% done, I think. I have done most of it online & in small boutiques. I love to support local artists & giving unique gifts. I also like to make gifts because it adds a personal touch. 

It’s not about dollars spent on something extravagant. It’s about letting people know they matter to you & that you thought of them. Write them a poem. Frame a favorite picture of you together. Look up ideas on Pinterest but try to have realistic expectations. (I typically double the alotted time & budget that is projected on a craft.) 

Think outside the box. Think of your recipients’ love languages. If they are the type that values time together, perhaps a shared experience like theatre tickets is a nice gesture. 

Or how about for Christmas, we just be nice? That’s good, too.
