With Christmas approaching faster than my four-year-old can finish a candy cane — which is pretty fast — I am thinking a lot about presents.
As I mentioned before, I’m just not into the whole present thing this year. Meaning, I don’t want to give presents to people for the sake of giving them presents. I want to do something meaningful, something that shows I genuinely care about them and thought about them.
It also needs to not cost very much.
I’ve always heard that “it’s the thought that counts.” But, I think that’s something people say when they’re doing the thinking. When you’re on the receiving end, you want more than just a thought. You want something cool.
My dilemma then is:
How do I give thoughtful, desirable gifts to my friends and family without breaking the bank or appearing cheap?
I have no answer…do you?
What do you think about homemade gifts – caring or cheesy?
