My mother’s advice – especially during the Holiday season

Tis the season to be jolly – but what about those occasions when giving is extra nice

  • BFF forever day? – Do you have a childhood friend from the neighborhood that you want to buy for and take to lunch.  Although you are both all grown now, it would be nice to start a new tradition with each other.
  • Out of Town Guests – arrive during the Holidays and ask to stay at your home? This is a perfect time to give a hotel voucher to your Guests.  What it means, is that you both will have some private time during their visit.
  • Always a Bridesmaid ?  Most of us have attended many weddings, showers and purchased tons of baby gifts over the years.  What about the friend of yours that never married, never had would be nice to remember them with a small token for the holidays.
  • How do you celebrate the anniversary of the death of loved one?  Losing a family member is a hurt like nothing else.  Sending your friend a hand-written note or making a playlist of their favorite songs is comforting to know that someone is thinking of you.
