10 Gifts That Give All Year

Giving feels as good as getting. When we give a gift, we want the recipient to know that we thought about what they would like to have. There's nothing like seeing the smile on someone's face when they receive a gift they love. That feeling can last all year if you choose the right gift. Here are some gift ideas that give all year.


Bestsellers Monthly Book Connection - For the reader on your gift list, the book connection can't be beat. It offers category choices like westerns, nonfiction, history, romance and even Oprah's Picks. The recipient gets a gift notification letter prior to the first book arriving. Books are shipped monthly to the address you choose. Book Connection charges a monthly fee for this service.

You are absolutely right about giving gifts. I love to see a smile spread across my children's and wife's face when they open their gifts. Christmas Vacation is a hilarious movie.

Great giving ideas, an interesting thing happened as I started to read your opening comments on giving and receiving.

I struggled for years with receiving and a lesson was learned one year at Christmas when I refused a hamper that was needed. The lesson the Pastor of the Church I was attending stated to me " You need to question the motive of your giving if you struggle with receiving".

The lesson learned give with a thankful heart and receive with a more thankful heart knowing that is being given in love.

Blessings

Thanks to all of you for stopping by. It does the heart good to give. Though I can't afford to give most of this stuff, it is the thought that counts.

Quill - you are right - we must learn to receive as well. I was once a proud one but have humbled with age.

Thanks for a list that provides some ideas.

If you can't afford one of these, consider a book of movie vouchers - the recipient can use them when they want, or when they are feeling a bit down.

Thanks for all the great ideas suziecat7! Just tonight a friend of ours was getting a big promotion in Martial Arts, along with a few others of a lesser degree. We had a small ceremonial cake made just for him. The look on his face made us feel so happy, we just knew how special it made him feel. It truly is better to give than receive.
