We’ve been told not to talk about it…
…but 652,000 Google search results assuring me it’s OK can’t be wrong.
Alright, so I have a confession to make:
A couple years ago, I re-gifted on Christmas.
Here’s what happened: I forgot to buy a Christmas gift for our babysitter. We were running late, going to see her for the last time before the New Year. I had to find something.
Sitting on the kitchen counter, still packaged, was a tube of Burt’s Bees lip gloss from my mother-in-law. I “re”-wrapped it faster than Jimmy Johns can make a sandwich, and made a B-line to the door.
This came to mind recently and got me thinking. I realized that some gifts should be re-gifted. And I’m not talking about giving grandma’s old stocking oranges to the dog.
I can’t think of any better gift to give your children this year than your time.
Everything else will eventually be forgotten… thrown away… or maybe sold at your next garage sale.
You and your family… that’s what it’s all about.
This is self-serving, but it’s true. As a parent, you and your child need access to new activities and experiences on a regular basis.
Do yourself a favor: go to the bottom of this page and watch my free video, which will give you an awesome activity to do throughout the Christmas season. Consider it my gift to you…
…and no, no one gave it to me first.
