I want to offer a novel idea:
They don't want your Presents.
What they want is your PRESENCE!
We grow out of clothes. Flowers die. Electronics become obsolete. Much of our "stuff" winds up in various donation bins.
Gifts are lovely sentiments, especially when it is an item that someone can really use. And personally, I do love giving gifts. But if you really want to give something special that will last, be fully present with your friend or loved ones.
Turn off your cell phone.
Turn off the TV.
Stop checking your watch or making other plans.
Make eye contact.
Talk to each other.
Listen to each other.
The memory of such an important exchange will last forever...
...something to think about.
