What do you buy everyone on your Christmas list? Do you get them socks and sweater and torques and scarves? Material things that can be returned in case the person doesn’t like the gift. It really is a bizarre concept. We all rush about buying the perfect gift for people and then right after Christmas the department stores need to restrict returns because it is so busy and there are so many gifts returned. What a waste of energy for everyone!
I know we all want to have presents under the tree and things to open on Christmas morning. It is a lovely thing to get a gift that has been carefully thought out and is just the right thing.
I think that gift certificates can be the perfect gift. But you say, where is the gift opening? Where is the flurry of wrapping paper from all the gifts that were under the tree? Here’s what I suggest.
Buy a gift certificate for a photo shoot. Buy a picture frame. Put the gift certificate inside the frame and wrap it in pretty paper. Voila! A beautiful present and a gift that will be appreciated and remembered for years to come. Some families cannot afford a photo shoot by a professional photographer and only have family photos that have been taken by the department store in the mall, or by Great Aunt Molly. A photo session by a professional photographer will be a remembered for years to come when everyone admires the images.
I can customize the writing on your very own gift certificate. I can even buy the picture frame for you if you like. It’s an easy gift and a very considerate one. And the value is huge!
