I love Christmas shopping.
I just do.
I love wandering the isles
of random seeming
stores, often second hand,
with a list of names
in search of the perfect gift,
which i may or may not
have an image of in my head.
Anyway, the past year or two my entire family and I have all been trying to slowly but surely get rid of some of the junk that we have all somehow accumulated. So the last thing I want to do this holiday season is add to that pile of well intentioned but unused stuff.
So here are some of the jottings from a notebook that I kept in my purse as I wandered the isles or internet pages...
*Cheap is not a reason to buy.
*Don't be a self centered gift giver,
give what the receiver would want or need,
not what you want.
*Find a way to give a unique experience.
*When buying I want to feel good about who I am supporting.
*Quality matters and is worth paying for.
*Consumption for its own sake is not a solution to anything.
Now bring on the joys of wrapping... :)
