If you are the kind of person that spends Christmas after Christmas and hours after hours searching for the right Christmas Gift and failing miserably because you just don’t quite get everyone’s likes and dislikes.
As time passes by you realize you won’t be able to get any better at gifting without a little bit of help.
One of the first things you need to understand about Christmas Gifts is that it isn’t the number you give or the price tag it came along, it is about the motivation in your heart to share with Friends and Family a token of appreciation for everything they meant in your life for the past year. It is important to remember always, that it’s all about the intentions rather than the brand or expensiveness of it.
Thankfully for you, there is no need to despair, we are here to help you with this Christmas gift-giving guide that will help you to navigate the treacherous waters of buying Christmas presents for your friends and families.
THREE BASIC RULES FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS
1. UNDERSTANDING THE REASON WHY WE GIVE GIFTS ON CHRISTMAS.
We have to begin all the way back at the beginning, with Baby Jesus, and how three wise men made a long journey to meet with him and in his presence they bowed down and offer him their treasures, gold, frankincense, and Myrrh which represented everything these men had, meaning that their intention was more important than the gift itself. Since then, it has become a tradition to give gifts to your friends and families on each Christmas morning.
2. BE GENEROUS, FOR REAL.
It may sound a little bit weird to you, and you must be wondering what does “Be Generous, for real” means? Well, it’s simple, as mentioned above, in a Christmas Gift the intention is all that counts. You have to be generous with your gift but said generosity has to come from your heart and not from competition or jealousy.
You have to make sure to check your intentions and ask yourself why you are giving that Gift to that person. The Gift has to be a reflection of our truthful generosity.
3. CHRISTMAS GIFTS ARE A BLESSING, NOT A BURDEN.
Very often the simple act of gift giving can be a stressful situation with a heavy burden for both the giver and the recipient. Why? Well, nowadays people spend long hours and lots of money buying what they think is a top of the line Gift that will be remembered forever, while in fact, they are only causing the recipient to feel the necessity to return the gesture with an even pricier gift and then a never-ending vicious circle starts and we easily lose track of what exactly is the purpose of Christmas gifts and its humble origins.
Christmas Gifts are not meant to be a burden, they are meant to be a blessing for both the giver and the recipient, a little piece of our heart for those special people in our lives.
