What does giving mean to you? Is giving about getting gifts? Or is it about so much more? About experiences? Not material things?
When you are a child it is all about the gift. The right Barbie Doll or the best Hot Wheels track. It's about the toys, the things, not the time spent with loved ones. But as you grow older, you start to realize there is so much more to this time of year. It is not only about the gifts you get but it is also about the gifts that you give. The look on someone's face when they open your gift knowing it is the perfect gift; the thing they really wanted. There is a true moment. A gift of experience instead of material.
Giving is about a lot of things, but it is the experience we give and the experience we get by gifting something. This holidays season try to give more experiences instead of gifts. Give the gift of memories created not the gift of material items. Spend time with loved ones, take pictures, experience this magical time of year. The holidays are about spending time with loved ones and making memories that last a lifetime. Cherish the small things, have a good chat, take a walk or just rest and watch a favorite movie. Make memories as those are the gifts that never fade away.
