It’s hard because I LOVE Christmas, as I may have mentioned before, and I also love giving gifts. So I may or may not be giving just a little nugget or two for the holidays. Just a little bit of something to share the Christmas spirit. I mean everyone has to have something to open, right?
So, what am I getting that I just have to give? I don’t know yet, but I feel the need. As soon as this idea was floated past me I started getting antsy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great idea and we need to save money for this trip. It’s just that as soon as someone tells me I can’t do something, I desperately WANT to do it. Are you with me? I know, I am like a toddler who is told they can’t eat the cookies and then that is all they can think about.
It’s kind of ironic because I am always at a loss for what to get everyone and now I have an excellent excuse not to get gifts and I WANT TO. I think it’s because the pressure is off and I know that anything will seem thoughtful and appreciated. Now, family, don’t get excited. I’m not talking about big gifts, just a little something that says, “hey, it’s Christmas and I thought of you.”
It’s not like I don’t want to get my family gifts every year it’s just that sometimes it can be stressful when I have no idea what to get. Then there are the times I am out shopping and all I can find are gifts for those who are not on my list or for those that I have already purchased gifts.
This year I want to be inspired. I want to find just the perfect little gift that I know they will love. Okay, maybe I am setting the bar a little high. I want to find gifts that they don’t want to take back.
