Gifting experiences over “stuff” for Christmas
Luckily I’m starting to see a trend more and more of focusing on experiences when gift giving rather than just wrapping as many boxes as possible. A couple weeks ago I wrote about how hard it was, working in retail, to watch people drive themselves into debt to give gifts. I totally still feel that way but I’m encouraged when I see people making different choices. Seeing thoughtfulness over how we spend, pushing back against the consumption of resources, is key. This post is more about what we’re choosing to buy.
This post isn’t especially special needs related, but still something I think is important! Changing our perspective on Christmas and gift giving can be such a huge gift to our children. If you haven’t jumped onto this recent way of thinking, it may be worth investigating!
