Christmas!  Do you feel an upwelling of joy and anticipation when you hear the word, or dread and anxiety about overspending?

Every year I used to suffer from Shoppingitus Xmasia a deadly creepy, unshakeable condition, which manifests as the fanatical search for the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list. Relief came from my wise and long-suffering husband, who pointed out that perfection was best not pursued in this area, adding that the most precious gift of all, was time.

This forced a change of attitude on me. Spending time with friends, colleagues, and family is the best way to say – ‘I love you, you matter to me’.

If you feel obliged to give a material gift, ask what the recipient would like. Listening to what people say will lead you to find out what they want, and often it’s not the gift, but the feeling that the gift evokes that they remark on.

The recipients of your gifts need to feel special - and Maya Angelou’s famous quote, below, says it all!
