May 7, 2010, Newsletter Issue #153: The Unexpected Gift

Tip of the Week

Itís 7 p.m., the sun has set, and thereís a nice fire glowing in the fireplace. Suddenly the doorbell rings. You wonder who it is. After all, you werenít expecting company. You peer through the slats of the mini-blinds before opening the door. Hey! Itís your fourth cousin twice removed with his wife and three kids. And whatís this? They brought gifts. With a smile pasted across your face, you invite them into your home, wondering all the while if there are any Halloween candy left over you could package up quickly and give them as a gift.

This Christmas, donít be stranded without a few extra gifts for those unexpected visitors that seem to come out of nowhere during the holidays. Thereís always someone you forgot and while it isnít the end of the world if they donít get a gift, it would be a nice gesture.

Thereís your childís school teacher, bus driver, or a neighbor who watches your home while youíre away. The gift doesnít have to be elaborate or expensive. It could be a miniature wreath or a pack of fiber optic, battery-operated mini Christmas trees. The point is to have something thatís not gender-specific on hand, wrapped and ready to go at a momentís notice.
