From the Editor

Dear readers, it’s holiday time, and I have a suggestion for meaningful giving that meets every gift requirement. It is useful and something your recipient will remember. It is from the heart and as personal as you can get!

Give the gift of yourself. It does not require anything but forethought and a lot of love. Here are a few ideas to help you make it work.

Gifts do not have to be objects or edibles. They can be statements of your true affection by requiring perhaps a bit more effort, leaving a more lasting impression of joy and sensitivity. That is the true nature of gifts that keep on giving.

May your holidays be filled with all the joys your heart can hold!

Dear readers, it’s holiday time, and I have a suggestion for meaningful giving that meets every gift requirement. It is useful and something your recipient will remember. It is from the heart and as personal as you can get!

Give the gift of yourself. It does not require anything but forethought and a lot of love. Here are a few ideas to help you make it work.

Offer to babysit for the young mother in your neighborhood so she can enjoy a day off. Offer busy friends a completely prepared dinner on the night of their choosing. Cut grass, weed a garden or wash windows for an elderly neighbor. Offer rides to the supermarket. Tend pets for vacationing friends. Volunteer to sit with an invalid for an afternoon. Take over a carpool for a week.

And perhaps you have keepsakes that you have “outgrown” or would like to share with loved ones. A locket, a pin, a special piece of jewelry, a money clip, a belt buckle — a token of love will touch the heart of one you care about.

Gifts do not have to be objects or edibles. They can be statements of your true affection by requiring perhaps a bit more effort, leaving a more lasting impression of joy and sensitivity. That is the true nature of gifts that keep on giving.

May your holidays be filled with all the joys your heart can hold!
