A Christmas Gift Idea To Grow Your Family Tree
Are you starting to have thoughts of gift giving? Have ribbon festooned gift boxes begun invading the space in your head? Are you starting to panic? Once again as the countdown to the holidays begin you hear the buzz everywhere Merry Christmas. Families everywhere deciding what to get the most important people in our lives. It may be less daunting if the focus group is kids, teens and young adults, toys and money and they’re covered.
But, there’s the other group. Addressing this annual dilemma for the grownup adults close to us is quite another matter. If you are anything like me when I am presented with the question of “What do you want for Christmas or Hanukkah (insert appropriate holiday) my answer has been much the same for a few years now. “I really don’t need anything” or “I have everything I need”, “Please do not get me anything” all true but not helpful. Pitiful. Boring. I know it. A pretty frustrating answer to the individuals asking. Said individuals would just like a hint, a tip, or any little useful idea to be imparted by us!
I’ve thrown my own hands up when my friends or family have answered in kind. Part of the reason I believe most of us commonly give this abysmal response is because we live in a “cannot wait, instant gratification” world. A world where we constantly wrestle with this widespread affliction. It goes like this. When We Want Something We Don’t Wait, we immediately Go Right Out and Get It. This is applicable to the general everyday stuff. You may be nodding and smiling.
Am I describing you?
So, just WHAT IS IT THAT WE WANT? Honestly, most working adults I know don’t have much to add to a wish list. They have likely picked up these items for themselves or ordered them online. The TRUTH IS the things we may still really want are the big-ticket items. Like a ‘brand new car’ or ‘a home for the family to make memories in’. The latter is something that I can certainly help you with. We are very busy this time of year helping clients with their holiday wish of “A New Home for the Holidays”. If you have been musing wishful thoughts of owning A New Home For The Holidays – you are in luck. As a Realtor on the Choose A Home Team, I would be thrilled to help make your wish come true!
