Gift giving is one of my love languages. It’s an expression of love for me to find the perfect gift, thoughtfully chosen and given to the recipient. These don’t have to be large, expensive or extravagant gifts, but rather something meaningful that I think will bring joy to the person on the receiving end.
As we enter the holiday season, I encourage you to take just a moment to calm your mind from all the buzz, from all the ads and marketing telling you what the MUST HAVE gift is this year. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and really think about the person you are shopping for. What do they love? What brings them joy? What are their unique passions or interests, traits and personality quirks?
It may be tempting to just grab something to have a gift to give them, but being mindful can elevate your gifting this holiday season to an experience more joy filled and heart warming than ever before.
