What a great gift I received for my birthday yesterday. My BFF invited me out to lunch and some last minute shopping at the mall.
When I arrived at the mall I was thinking about how crowded it may be but in the late morning on a Friday it was not overpacked at all. It was pleasant to stroll through the mall and be greeted with a smile from a gentleman that had the look of love in his eyes as he was leaving the mall with a little package from Tiffanys.
I then passed a gentleman with a shopping bag from Prada beaming from ear to ear as he quickly walked around the mall.
I continued to make my way to the restaurant passing yet another gentleman on the phone sharing his treasure with someone on the phone about his gift from Louis Vuitton.
As I approached Tiffany’s I saw two more gentlemen with little bags from Tiffany’s. I glanced into Tiffany’s to see the store filled with male shoppers, talking with the salespeople.
As I proceeded on my journey I looked around and saw mostly men shopping and started to think to myself about the first few people that I saw with their special gifts they selected for their significant others. Not everyone, of course, can spend the prices that Tiffanys, Prada, or Louis Vuitton charge, however when it comes time to selecting a gift for that special someone, it is not the price but the thought that comes from your heart and how you present it.
A simple card that says you love someone and the gift of time may be the gift that will always be remembered. So this Christmas whether you can afford a gift for that special someone or you can’t due to circumstances, take the time to write a beautiful love letter about the way you feel towards that special someone. Really put some thought into what is in your heart, your significant other will treasure that forever.
I finally made it to my lunch with my BFF and realized that we all need days like this to share lunch, dinner, a cup of coffee, or tea with those near to our heart and cultivate those relationships.
