I enjoy giving gifts. I will spend hours trying to find just the perfect gift for someone and wrapping it in a creative manner.
This year I am working on a few hand-made gifts. I can personalize them and make them meaningful to the recipient. ( I am hoping I will get a better camera for Christmas so my pics show up sharper!)
These boards show memories from the past year, as well as sentiments that I think will be appreciated. The value in this kind of gift is that it is from the heart.
This little abstract art piece that I did reminds me a the quirky friend I have and I am thinking that he will get a kick out of it.
So what will you do to personalize your gifts this year? How about bake some cookies and put them in a pretty bag? A gift of a journal with a wonderful pen would be nice for that friend that practices mindfulness, or is going through a hard time and would find writing their thoughts down to be helpful.
