Y’all are in for a treat! A whole bunch of bloggers (forty of us!) have teamed up for a seriously awesome giveaway to stuff your stockings with over $1100 worth of goodies, including two $250 cash prizes, as well as oodles of other great gifts!
How’s that for Christmas spirit?
(I can hear those sleigh bells jingling already!) 😉
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Maybe you prefer not to think about Christmas until after you’ve eaten your Thanksgiving turkey — but I’m a planner. Although I buck my grandmother’s tradition of always having her tree (and all sorts of other Christmas decorations) up before Thanksgiving, I do already have my Christmas cards designed, I’ve done at least half my Christmas shopping done, and I’ll start wrapping gifts this week. I don’t know about your holiday gift budget, but that $250 would go a mighty long way in mine!
Life events lately have really had me considering what’s important, and what isn’t.
What is important: Spending quality time with loved ones. Making memories. Speaking life-giving words. Giving from the heart. Gifts aren’t important unless they contribute to those other things, so I like to make them count. I don’t want to buy a present just to check off my list; I want to find (buy or make) gifts that speaks to the thought and time and care I put into choosing it. That’s always a big challenge each year, so I’d love to hear some of your ideas for meaningful holiday gifts! One idea: anything from the Compassion and Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Gift Catalogs!
Thanks to all these fabulous holly-jolly blogs participating:
