No ideas for Christmas
One Christmas I had absolutely no idea what to get my family members. And the thought of braving the malls did nothing for my inspiration.
I had the idea that in lieu of exchanging gifts, we use the money that we would have spent on each other for a Christmas charity instead. This ended up being a wonderful idea because we ended up spending more time together working towards something that benefitted others.
We helped our church with a fundraiser dance-- helped out with selling tickets, serving food, the cleanup and we donated the gifts that were to be given during a raffle. The feeling of goodwill lasted beyond the opening of a gift!
