I think I am the easiest person in the world to buy gifts for, because I have a wide range of interests. Simple things like a pretty candle, a scarf or a book on my wish list, all make me happy. I also have a love for handmade items and enjoy receiving a one of a kind piece from an art and craft fair. My daughters were so thoughtful this Christmas and showed me that they know me well. Their gifts to me were special and unique - both pieces of art, I will treasure for years to come.
Megan's gift to me was this handmade metal snowflake from an artisan co-op store. It has a little bit of sparkle and I added some pretty white ribbon and twine, so I could hang it on the sliding door in my kitchen. This is something I will enjoy every winter as it sparkles in the sunshine and reflects the snow outside.
Melissa's gift to me was this hand painted sign, from an Etsy shop. This song lyric is from the musical, Guysand Dolls, and has special meaning for us. When my girls were little, this is the song I would sing to them, at night, before they went to sleep. It is hanging in in my laundry room and it makes me smile every day.
The best gifts are not the ones that cost the most, but the ones that show that the giver thought about you and what makes you happy.
