Meaningful Holiday Giving
The season for shopping is here. Masses of shoppers pack the malls and browse online stores to get the best deals on all their holiday gifts. This holiday shopping frenzy continues through December and then the stores are packed again with consumers returning and exchanging gifts, and looking for even more deals.
Shopping for the holidays can be time consuming, exhausting, and even stressful. Deciding on the perfect gift isn’t always easy either. Here are some ideas to make giving easy and especially meaningful this holiday season.
It's difficult to schedule time with friends and family throughout the year, so buy theater or concert tickets and enjoy the time together.
Museum memberships are great for the art enthusiast on your list. And gym or yoga memberships are wonderful ideas for those who are ready to get serious about exercise.
If you have friends who are entrepreneurs, help support them by purchasing from their company or brand.
Make a charitable donation in the name of your friend or family member. This year Integrative Nutrition is donating $100 for every enrollment to charity on the new students behalf. You could also sponsor a child through Save the Children or World Vision.
Giving isn’t just for one holiday, one season, or one day. Spending time giving love, support, and encouragement everyday to those around you is the most valuable gift you can give. Even if you give a smile to a stranger on the street you are making a difference.
