I love buying gifts, especially for my family. Giving gifts isn’t always easy peasy, especially when you have people who say to you ‘don’t bother with a birthday present for me, because you can’t give me what I really want’. Some people will say ‘cheek – they should be grateful for any gift’, but on second thoughts I’ve come to see their line of thinking. What is the point in giving someone a gift that is actually useless to them? This line of thought has led me to start giving more serious thought to the gifts I give. Yes, books are still a wonderful gift to the serious reader. I give beautiful bird feeders and bird baths to my pet loving friends and a health spa voucher to a friend of mine who I know could use some TLC – gifts that can truly benefit someone.
I’m not saying there aren’t some useful traditional gifts out there. We lead such hectic lifestyles, and for soothing sore muscles, there are some amazing bath-balls to place in your tub and which release soothing, moisturizing and aromatic ingredients into the water to soothe and relax you and enhance this part of your body care. If you’re battling with gift ideas, let met know as I believe I’ve got a gift for choosing purposeful, interesting, pleasurable gifts for the important ones in your life.
