If you’re gonna buy a gift, either make it practical, or make it thoughtful.
Practical is something you know that the receiver wants or needs. Thoughtful is something that made you think of that person, and you want to give it to them.
Gift giving is not about stuffing stockings with filler, or re-gifting office party leftovers. It is meaningful or it is nothing. I love receiving homemade gifts because it means someone took time to think of me, and I enjoy making gifts because it slows things down, and gives me time to be thankful for the people I love.
I ask for lists because I can’t make everything. One homemade gift for as many people as I can make for.
I still believe in Santa though. I like to think that the people I love get something fun that they otherwise wouldn’t get for themselves. That means that Santa still comes to my house. In the morning stockings that were flat and lifeless are stuffed to overflowing, and there are a couple of packages that weren’t under the tree the night before.
This year I have been asked for a list. So, here it is – with explanations. DO NOT say I didn’t give you any hints this year Santas…
Any team gear from my kiddo’s team – Go Gryphons!!!
I wear two kinds of perfume, and two kinds of perfume only. I am out of one of those kinds;
Icy Squares for my stocking.
The Hardware I picked out in NYC;
So that’s all I can come up with really. Santa does still shop at Tiffany’s, right???
