I love to receive gifts, don’t you? I also love making or shopping for what I think will bring a smile to someone’s face. During the holiday season the line between joyfully giving and consumerism is hard to find. This season, our family is trying to find balance in pleasing our kids, the economic threat, latest & greatest gadgets, what is necessary vs. indulgence, parental guilt, and the need for a little guilty pleasure 😉 I think what helps darken the dividing line is your intent. I ask myself, can we afford this, can we get it used, is it wasteful, do they have enough, who am I supporting? Our children learn best from what we do rather than what we constantly say. Let’s make an effort to give gifts based on joy instead of guilt and spend where are dollars will make the most difference.
Find unique gifts for the holidays or shop for yourself! There are over 25 local artists offering clothing for the whole family, jewelry, cards, books, accessories, and fine art photography. The best part? The events and Meet & Greets that happen every weekend. All are from 6-9pm, FREE, and yummy Sangria is provided.
