Christmas is just around the corner, and I know if you’re anything like me, you’re frantically trying to find the perfect gift for everyone, am I right? Well, stop! Why not give a gift that will last your friends and family a lifetime.
I am not saying, ‘don’t buy gifts at all.” What I am saying is to focus on creating a memory with the person you are gifting this holiday. Here are some of my favorite ideas.
- A special date night with your partner
- Monthly Family Movie Night… POPCORN INCLUDED
- A trip doesn’t have to be expensive, a weekend in the mountains or the beach.
- A dance class together with your spouse
- Hiking program with your kids
Do you see the theme here? Each of these gifts is the most valuable gift because it includes quality time with YOU! My grandkids love this so much that when we now ask them what they would like for Christmas, they start giving us ideas… This year they’re talking about us all attending a play together. Of course, they are asking about going to a broadway play but… been there (with 14 people) done that.
One day I will have moved on to my next phase of existence, and if I am fortunate, those who know and love me will be left filled with memories, love, and experiences. Something they will never outgrow, lose, or forget…
It’s never too late to start creating memories with those you cherish.
