On the seventh day of savings my true love gave to me…
Seven sausages sizzling…
Six fleece-lined layers…
Four calling cards,
three custom pens,
two fluffy gloves,
and a gift card to JC Penney’s..
Food again, I know. I just find that good food gets eaten; it doesn’t get returned, isn’t hidden in a drawer never to be seen again, or donated to the Good Will. Gift baskets with people’s favorite food and drink items are appreciated. I received some chocolates this year that I’ll eat and share with family.
If you just can’t do the gift basket thing because it’s too boring, invite family and friends over for a home-cooked meal or impromptu pot luck – good food, drinks, and company are a terrific “gift” for the holidays. It definitely beats the alternative.
