As gift giving season approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in finding the perfect present. Who to buy for? What to give Where to get it? How much to spend? While these questions are totally fair, they sort of miss the point. Gift giving in any season is about showing you care. It’s about acknowledging another person’s importance in your life. Often times the best gifts aren’t material at all.
Instead of stressing out about finding the perfect present, try asking yourself a different question: how might I be of service? What gesture or daily act of kindness can I offer to a friend, a family member or even a stranger? Attention and acknowledgement have an enormous value and can make a greater impact than any gift you can find in a store.
So, stop scouring store shelves, forget about online catalogues and give the gift of you! Happy holidays, breathe deeply and let your kind heart lead as you go forth into the holiday season!
