Christmas time is here again. The shopping centres are decked out with an abundance of decorations. The Christmas carols play in the background. And Santa himself is now present, for all the children to meet.
The buzz in the shopping centres displays all the tell tailed signs that Christmas is fast approaching. Christmas brings lots of joy to people not only the joy of rejoicing in Christs birthday but the joy and delight of giving and receiving of gifts.
To see the delight in a families members face on Christmas day, when they open that perfect gift you have given them, not only does it bring immense pleasure to the receiver but to the purchaser as well. The purchaser has outdone themselves again, with another great gift, but more importantly they have made someone extremely happy.
Although Christmas brings around a lot of happiness, it can also bring a lot of anguish.
Financial burdens, anguish about what gifts to buy, not to mention the anguish about the crowds of people amongst the shops.
Todays technology and online shopping has helped , but you need to have a computer handy, and have the knowledge of how to use one. If your lucky enough to be in this category then internet shopping allows you to shop 24 hours a day in the comfort of your home or work place.
But what do I buy, this is always the question. Every year we try to outdo ourselves. Try to buy better than the year before. We re always looking for something unique, something that you know the person hasnt already got. But what?
For me I always try to go for handcrafted products. Start by looking for something that has been handmade, Something that has been made by someone personally, giving your gift that personal touch. Look for gifts that have been made, with wood or perhaps recycled products. Soaps, and porcelain crafts are great to.
Craft markets are a great place to source handcrafted goods. If you cant get to a market you can always try searching online. Try search terms like recycled products, Unique gifts, handmade, handcrafted even hand blown. The search terms really are endless. You will be amazed at the wonderful and interesting things you come across.
The quest for the perfect gift will still continue, but you know the old saying is still true. Its not what you buy its the thought that counts. Merry Christmas.
