Featuring the 4F’s of Christmas (My own guide to great Christmas gifting).
FAITH/PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. Whatever your faith or lack there of, it’s always a good idea to gift something that contributes to someone’s personal development. Last year a friend gave me a Happiness Journal. It was lovely and an awesome gift whether you’re spiritual or not.
FINANCES. Money is never a bad gift. Let’s face it, the times that we live in are not easy for everyone and I always know someone who can use a quick infusion of cash or an American Express gift card. So get a great card and slide in a couple of bills.
FOOD. This is a new gift area to me, but I really enjoy receiving either food items (Cheryl’s cookies anyone) or food gift cards. My mom loves Panera Bread – you can’t go wrong with a gift card that buys her breakfast and lunch. If I was shopping for my sister it would be P.F. Chang’s all the way. In short, we all have fave foods – why not make it a part of a gift.
FUN. This gift takes a little more creativity. Maybe it’s a Groupon deal or a gift certificate to a dance class. Maybe it’s movie or concert tickets. Perhaps a friend needs a new golf club or set of balls. Either way you can’t lose when fun is part of the gift.
