holiday secrets: gift giving

December 7, 2011 at 6:53 pm Leave a comment

this weekend while i was at a craft fair, i overheard someone say–very downtroddenly–that they were looking for “the perfect gift”. i’ve heard people talk about this rare creature before as if it exists somewhere out there, and can only be found through exhaustive search efforts. the elusive perfect gift deserves its own nature show for how much it’s hunted.

here’s the deal: there is no one perfect gift that will make someone happy//be the best gift ever//get her to forgive you//trump all other gifts//make him love you//{and all those other things we imagine will be achieved when we finally present this perfect gift}. instead there are several thoughtful ways to show you love someone. and remember: this person you’re buying the gift for? they’ll never see all the things you didn’t choose. they’ll never know. in other words, it’s going to be okay.

and you don’t have to go overboard, either. i’ve been to family gatherings where there were more presents than room under the tree and i’ve also been to gatherings where there was a small gift exchange. both gatherings were equally fun.

that’s it, that’s all i’m going to say about it. because it’s really that simple.

seriously, where is that gift?
