As we busy ourselves trying to find the right gifts for our loved ones, our friends, our work colleagues or relatives, and as the advertisers compete to gain our attention, the one thing on our minds is what can I get for so and so, and will they like it? As the clock ticks by, the pressure mounts until we simply throw caution to the wind and grab the first thing on the bargain rack in the local department store hoping that Aunty Dot will love what she’s getting for Christmas. In the coolness of the office and the comfort of your chair you may wish, however, to consider these few suggestions I came across recently. It will take a little effort on your part, but it will mean a lot to the person receiving it: • The gift of listening. No interrupting, no planning your response. Just listening. • The gift of affection. Being generous, with hugs, kisses, and pats on the back. • The gift of laughter. Sharing funny stories and jokes. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.” • The gift of a written note. Expressing in a handwritten note your appreciation or affection. • The gift of a compliment. Sincerely saying “You look great today” or “ You are special” can bring a smile. • The gift of encouragement. Using the never overused word of “Thanks” or “Well done”, to bolster an otherwise deflated spirit. How often have we had gifts that have been thrown in some corner of the house or garden or, worse, relegated to the garage or shed awaiting the next hard-rubbish collection day? What a wonderful Christmas it would be if we could make someone happy. May the Joy of Christmas be with you and all your family and may the New Year usher in a new perspective of giving. ••• «IT wIll TAkE lITTlE EffORT ON yOUR PART, BUT IT wIll MEAN A lOT TO ThE PERSON RECEIvING IT»
