Over the years, I have had many great friends who I love dearly…some who I have known forever, some for a pretty long time, and some I have just met. Through it all I feel grateful and believe that friendship of any time period or deepness is one of our greatest gifts to have, and to give. However I ALWAYS struggle with what to do around Christmas time as it relates to gift-buying.
I love to buy and give gifts. It is fun, rewarding, and exciting. However, it is also expensive, and sometimes awkward to for the person you are gifting, if they didn’t gift you back.
What do you do with your friends around Christmas time?!
Some of my various traditions
- Trading a bottle of wine
- Dinner/Happy Hour
- Baking together
- Playdate with the family
- and of course – a Gift Exchange!
Overall, it’s the time I spend with them, no matter what we do or give or get, that is the greatest gift of all!
