Today is the third post of our link-up series - Tis the Season For Gratitude. Susan is posting today over on her blog and sharing how the perfect gift, does not have to be a gift at all. Here is a sneak peak of what she has to say:
Every year I struggle with what to get people. I want to pick out the perfect gift, but I also am tight on money and don't want to break the bank. This Christmas season I really focused on showing GRATITUDE instead of getting caught up in what to buy people. I want to bless people that mean the most to me, but how do I do this?
Sometimes the perfect gift isn't a gift at all. This year, I focused on using the gifts and talents God has blessed me with.
Here are some ideas:
Pictures!I know a lot of your bloggers are camera savvy/photographers. Offer to take family pictures for free! For those of you just starting out, this is great practice. And for those of you who are a little further along, you can do a mini session.
I did this for a couple of people in my church and it was one of the best experiences I have had. It was such a blessing for these families and they were so excited not only to have a nice picture to include on their Christmas card, but the option of printing some out for presents to grandparents. I was BLESSED to be able to use the gifts that God has given me to bless someone else. In all my years of given presents, I can honestly say that this was the best gift I have given.
