Gifts

TOKENS OF APPRECIATION

No matter the occasion, it's easy to get caught up in giving someone a useless gift just for the sake of giving something.

Give with intention

Presents don't have to be expensive and they don't have to be
meticulously handmade (unless that is what they want). Gifts could be time, experiences, or memories. They could also be food, subscriptions, or donating money for them. To give a gift with intention, it's important to think about what role it will play in their life. Will it add clutter to their homes? Will they throw it away? Or will they use it because they enjoy it and/or find it valuable? Gift giving is a love language, but these gifts don't have to be monetarily valuable, necessarily. Someone would probably appreciate a gift given with thought even more. Watch the video linked in resources for more intentional gift ideas.
