Make it a Very Special Christmas with these Unique Ideas
As the polar air begins to invade numerous states across the nation this week, thoughts of the upcoming holiday season warm my heart. Memories of my childhood Christmases start to fill my mind, and I think about some of the most special family Christmases I have had. We weren’t always very well off financially when I was growing up. Although we never went hungry, the unstable economy made sure that we were careful with what we spent. I can remember waking up some Christmas mornings to mounds and mounds of gifts, while others would hold just one or two special presents, unique gift ideas, for each person. Many years, my mother and father simply did without. It’s funny, however, how those Christmases were all special to me, regardless of the number of gifts I received. No matter how much money we had, my parents always seemed to come up with at least one special Christmas gift that really meant something to us kids.
As a young mother in the beginning, I always tried to fill the space under the tree with mounds of Christmas gifts for my own children, friends and family members. After a few years of watching toys sit untouched in toy boxes, tools remain unused, and seeing clothing hanging in the closet unworn, however, I started to realize that it isn’t about the number of gifts you receive, but instead about whether those gifts are given with lots of thought and love put into them. I vowed then, that no matter how much money I had, I would always find at least one special Christmas gift for each of my recipients.
