I’ve mentioned before that hubby and I don’t exchange holiday gifts. We like it that way – holidays are for sharing time, not trying to find the one thing the other person wants and will cherish above all else. I’m firmly in the bah-humbug camp on gifting, partially because I don’t think gifts should be relegated to just a few days per year (ie, if you find something nice for someone, give it to them then!), and partially because I hate to shop. And no, I don’t have all the gifts I need bought yet. We’re working on it.
Hubby and I give each other lots of gifts though, they just aren’t the kind you need to wrap up with a bow. Like foot rubs. Movie nights. Special shower soap. Dinners out. Even candy stolen from a co-worker’s desk (that would be hubby). Time. A listening ear. A shopping companion. An excuse to leave…where-ever. Or even an excuse not to go.
What’s your favorite “everyday” gift to give to your spouse/significant other? Let’s make a list, and who knows, maybe we’ll get a few new ideas!
