It’s important to make sure to say thank you, but at the holidays it’s especially important to go the mile to let people who make your world rock like your kid’s teacher, postal worker, hairstylist and the nice neighbor down the street.
After much feedback from service works and caretakers, I’ve learned a lot about what is right and what is wrong about gifting at the holidays.
Rules of gifting:
- No candles or lotion with fragrance
- No food
- Love things that are homemade like something you or your child has made.
- Doesn’t have to be expensive to be thoughtful!
- It’s all about the presentation.
