Starting July 1, it’s birthday month in our household. We celebrate lots (and lots) of our family members this time of year. As time has passed, gift-giving for this annual occasion has become trickier. There seem to be so many choices when picking out a present for a child; gifts for adults can be a harder task.
For me, the pairing of a gift and a certain occasion do not always coincide. I find when a specific celebratory date is looming, it’s hard for me to think of just the right gift for the honoree. I often will find ‘something for a special someone’ at a random time. That’s the good news. I’m not so good at holding on to the present for a specific date; if I buy it, I excitedly want to share it with the recipient right away. And that’s what I tend to do.
On the receiving end of gifts, I can’t think of one more ‘thing’ I need or even want at this point in my life. I’m so fortunate to be in this position. What I have begun to ask for is shared experiences with the people I love. The gift of time together is priceless and creates meaningful memories that last.
