I often have trouble with gift giving. For one thing I just kind of stink at picking out the perfect thing. And for a lot of my growing up years, money was tight, so if a gift was to be gotten, it had to be good, and it had to be EXACTLY what the person wanted and needed, and not just something to fill a gift bag. Also, not to be a scrooge, but I just think there's a lot of stuff in this world already, and if you live in a first world country you're really not hurting for much, so gift giving sometimes seems a little, I don't know, silly? So with all that overthinking of gift giving swirling around in my head, when it comes time to give birthday and Christmas presents, I often feel completely lost!
I love what our friend Greg got for his wife Megan, for her birthday. Something absolutely perfect for her, that she loved, that wasn't more stuff, and that she could share with her friends!
