"The gift that gives on"
Gift-giving is one of life’s greatest joys — but it’s not always the easiest task. Whether you’re shopping for your sweetheart, parent, sibling, friend, or anyone else you care about, finding the perfect present requires some effort.
Remember that mindful gift-giving has a positive psychological and emotional effect on us. It reinforces our feelings for another person and allows us to communicate that we care. It also helps us to share something unique about ourselves and our relationship with others and by doing so, creates a sense of belonging.
“The gift that gives on” is used to describe something that continues to provide benefits or advantages over time.
This year we are celebrating “The gift that gives on”, by highlighting some gift opportunities that continue to give to our community and family.
