I hope that you had a lovely Christmas!
Brad and I were discussing some of the differences in the feelings of the season between childhood and adulthood. One thing I’ve been thinking about with Christmas this year is that gift giving is amazing (okay I’ve always loved gift giving) and that it says more about the giver than the givee. (I know, “recipient” not givee, but that worked with my statement better.)
I was psyched this year about the gifts that we got for people this year because they were, in my opinion, perfect.
Personally, I think that the gift chosen says to the recipient, “I know X about you” or “This seems like it fits your interests.” Obviously this can backfire if you have a skewed perspective of the recipient’s interests or personality.
I heard from a lot of people this year how satisfying it is to find the perfect gift for someone. I think that’s part of the joy of gift giving.
What is your favorite gift that you gave this year?
