Mindfully considering the person to whom you are giving is a wonderful way to express care and expand relationships.
- What is meaningful for the recipient. See it from their view point.
- Explore your “whys” behind giving the gift. Let go of your expectations.
- Examine your customary ways of giving. Think out of the box for fun.
As you slow down, become more aware, and consider the process of gift giving, you can avoid the stress of purchasing the perfect present in exchange for the true pleasure of generosity. A mindful gift will be beneficial to you as well as the receiver. Gift giving can be a joy.
