christmas countdown begins. the importance of gift not present giving

Its not even December but for many the Christmas countdown has already begun. Shops are selling Christmas related goods and adverts such as the coca cola ‘the holidays are coming’ Christmas reminders are starting to gear up.

usually i like to have all my  Christmas shopping done way before December and I know many others try to do the same out of a desire to avoid the maddening crowds.

Trying to find that perfect gift can be time consuming and expensive. for this reason  try where possible to make my own gifts. which is possible with a bit of thought, patience and not too many materials.

My sister sent me this link and i had to share as it is about giving gifts not presents. Instead of buying something spend time with someone. It will be much appreciated.

  1. I asked my siblings for the gift of their time helping me with something they are good at, like cooking. And even if they are not good at it… it still is time spent together. 🙂 I think home made gifts are good. Not to spoil peoples surprises but I’m thinking of doing some cooking type stuff for peoples presents this year… So much nicer than any store bought stuff…
