016: Holiday Gift Ideas

The holidays are upon us! For many people, the holiday season means gift-giving, so Maria and Anna set out to compile some gift-giving approaches and ideas. They discuss the five different love languages and how these can inform our methods of gift-giving, and the importance of giving something that will make the recipient feel loved and appreciated. They then share some of their favorite small businesses and artisans that create wonderful products and gifts, because supporting independent artists means supporting creativity. Gift giving doesn’t always have to be about purchasing items, however, so Maria and Anna give some gift ideas that don’t necessarily cost money, but do communicate love and thoughtfulness. Finally, our co-hosts encourage listeners (and each other) to remember that giving gifts is not just about spending money, but about showing our love for others and also for enriching our own lives.
