So naturally it was really easy for me to compile this “Women’s Christmas Gift Guide” seeing that I am a Woman, and I have a long list of items that I would really love to get for Christmas 😉 This is also an attempt to let Mr. Burst know what is on the list this year, picture, website and price. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
On a more serious note. It is so easy to forget what the festive season is truly about, the most important birth ever, of the son of God. Which He gave to us to be able to have a direct connection with Him. It is the season of giving yes, but we should never forget what it is all about. We should be thankful for family and loved ones as so many are alone. We should appreciate what we have and never stop thanking God for the blessings. We should invest in spending time with the people we care about, because life can be taken in the wink of an eye. Christmas is about much more than someone in a red suit ringing a bell, or giving gifts. We should fill our Christmas socks with unconditional love, forgiveness, a listening ear, a supportive hand and understanding. I always appreciate a thoughtful gift more than the cost or the size. This year we should all try and be more thoughtful and intentional, write a thoughtful note or carefully wrap the gift. Be more aware of recyclable materials, be kind to nature and wrap in reusable materials.
When buying gifts try and be more thoughtful and intentional, write a thoughtful note or carefully wrap the gift. Be more aware of recyclable materials, be kind to nature and wrap in reusable materials. Support local businesses and support ethical trading.
Really think about the gift you are buying. I always appreciate a thoughtful gift more than the cost or the size.
