Giving gifts can feel like work. Like pressure. Expensive. Annoying.
What if we drop all of the bad part, and think about the joy the right gift will bring someone we care about?
What’s a better opportunity than the chance to delight another?
What’s more, with our spending or crafting, we can make a decision about who to support. We can support our friend’s lovely jewelry venture. We can support the local market making excellent chocolates. Or what about a t-shirt locally silk screened? And sometimes a donation in the name of someone else is the perfect gift for the person who has everything, or would appreciate the gift more than any thing.
Passing along money can support the economy and delight those we love.
