A Gift Idea

Confession: I am a black Friday shopper.

I have been for years.


Truth be told, it has little do with the “deals” anymore. It really has to do with the fact that it has become a tradition for my mom, sister and I to dedicate the day shopping together and it helps me check off my holiday shopping list in pretty much one fell swoop.


I will be honest, I like a really great gift.

More than that, I LOVE giving a really great gift, you know the kind that just fits the person or relationship?

I can still remember my excitement when I got my grandma a special journal book for her to share her family stories. Or when I got my mom a Kindle that I knew would be so useful for her. Or when I gave my sister her first DSLR.

But there is a gift that I haven’t seen in the Black Friday circulars this year.

Like most really good gifts it isn’t for everyone and it doesn’t fit every situation, but when it does… I haven’t seen too many better reactions to when I give this gift…

Truth be told, it wasn’t my idea… it was a gift given to me a few years ago and it felt so good that I decided to give a similar gift to someone else I loved this year…

It was the gift of NOT exchanging gifts.

It isn’t for everyone.

And by no means is this gift lover and gift-giving lover advocating doing away with the practice at all…

But when you find the right person, it might just be one of the best gifts they receive all year.

    What is the gift? I love what you wrote but you never said what the gift was. I’m always looking for just the right one.
