The Experience of Giving Gifts

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all not getting too stressed out with all the shopping and preparations that comes with the holiday season just ahead. Remember your health is still the priority when making your plans. You do not want too much drama. Just keep in mind it's just a time that you give gifts and spend time with family and friends.

Don't get too carried away and toss the family budget aside. Planning is of the utmost importance. It allows for things to go smoothely, and to avoid teardrops and anxiety in the middle of January of the new year that is ahead. this is about the business of living life, that is life according to your budget.

This is also a time when you can become creative when thinking about gifts to give to those who you want to give gifts. Be smart about your choices. Like for instance, is the gift going to be useful to the person, is it going to encourage the person to be creative, is it going to help the person become motivated to learn something that he or she is excited about.

Giving a gift is about the EXPERIENCE that both the giver and the receiver feels when the gift is presented. And, of course you want that moment to be full of joy. It really has nothing to do with how much you spent for the gift, besides, you are going to be sticking with your budget, and that is why you have to be very creative about how you are going to create that EXPERIENCE for you and the one who will be receiving the gift.

I hope that this helps you all with the choices you are going to be making. Happiness is the theme during these holidays. These holidays are filled with fun, and laughter, and togetherness too, however, try to keep this feeling going throughout the years ahead. If you can do it for the holidays, you can do it for the rest of your years. And why not? That is your sweet challenge.

I hope I help to bring some light to ease the stress that comes with the gift giving holidays. I hope that everyone has a wonderful time sharing and just having fun with each other. It all boils down to the business of living life.

Best wishes to all, Peace!
