The Perfect Gift?

December 24, 2008

So how do we find the perfect gift? The Holiday Season has got me thinking about how different men and women can be with gift-giving. As women, we can be so good at remembering every favorite thing of our loved ones. I keep track of favorite brands of T-shirts, electronics, perfume, and even favorite food. When I guess right, and give what I think may be the perfect gift, I feel like my family and friends will know how much I care about them. Really, isn’t it the best feeling when they say "This is exactly what I wanted.!"

I must admit, this has definitely back-fired at times. During the moments when I didn’t get the perfect gift, I suddenly thought that person didn’t care about me as much, especially if it was my boyfriend. Now I know why so often men will ask for hints or tips on what we want. I use to think they didn’t care enough to be creative. Now I realize how practical they are! Being results oriented, what if they are thinking, " How do I win here?" What’s wrong with giving a few hints, eh? Hmmm, now I have some ideas for my birthday this year!

Since gift-giving can be a display of how much we care, I’ve also started to wonder if the very act of "giving" is the perfect gift. Maybe that’s why it feels so good, when we give our time to help someone in need. It’s really an expression of us! Perhaps this season, as you receive gifts from your loved ones– take a moment to receive their gift of "Giving to You." You might find that it may not matter what is behind the wrapping paper after all! Happy Holidays!!
