Get Organized Now for Christmas - Day 13 - Gift Giving

What does gift giving really mean to you? There are many ways to give gifts during the Christmas season, some require money, but others do not.

Ornaments from your own childhood, ornaments the kids make, photo albums and journals from grandparents, scrapbooks, bags full of things from around the house my children collected together . . . all of these are treasured gifts. When you put a little thought behind your gifts -- most people will be honored no matter what the cost. Christmas should not be about how much money you can spend on someone, but rather how much love is poured into the gift.

Take a look around your house and think about the things that mean a little extra to you and why it has that sentimental value to it. Is there items in your house that people on your gift list would cherish because of a memory they have with the item that you have? If so, consider giving it as a Christmas gift to that person, especially if you are not currently using it. That gift will probably be one of their most cherished gifts this Christmas.
