It’s that time of the year.
Gifts are awesome. I don’t know anybody who actively resists receiving a gift.
I also know people who constantly give gifts. Some of these gift givers are pure to the extreme (“I saw this and thought immediately of you”), some are as predictable as the sun coming up (Merry Christmas and here is the exact same thing I’ve given you every year for the last two decades), and some are in it for themselves (proven when the rarity or value of the gift becomes a part of the conversation while giving).
In the end, gifts are awesome no matter from who or why. But if you are the giver, take a moment to think about the question of why you are giving it and how you are presenting it. That ten seconds of thought can shape the outcome, impact, and result of the gesture.
That’s my gift to you! 😉
