Giving Gifts - Creativity, Comfort, Convenience
“Creativity, Comfort, Convenience” are words that I have had written on my business card ever since Lorraine Interiors began. My goal is to offer my clients these things as I work on their projects. I got to thinking about these words in terms of gift giving, since this is the season for it. Here are a few suggestions for us all.
Creativity: Everyone can be creative in some way; you can do this! How about gIving a pre-planned out day filled with a new experience? Make something with your own two hands. Give the gift of time spent with your loved one. Maybe that involves sitting on the couch and simply listening to them talk all afternoon. This is an especially creative and perfect gift for grandparents.
Comfort: Wow, this one can mean lots of things. What about a massage? New sweats? A deep conversation with someone to assure them how much you love them. Snuggling while watching your favorite movie. A tremendous meal full of comfort foods! What does comfort mean to you? Now go ahead and think what comfort would mean for someone you love.
Convenience: This one can really get your mind spinning. How about a gift certificate for house cleaning or yard service? Shopping for and delivering groceries for someone. Offering to pick up and drop off a friend for a particular monthly event. Picking up dog poop (I know, gross) or caring for someone's pet while they go away overnight. Ok, let's not forget how convenient a new car would be!
Whatever you decide to give this holiday season always remember that YOU are the best gift. Be present.
