Gift-giving is an art. Good gift-givers are usually talented and artistic, but most importantly they are good listeners. They are focused. They observe. They think. They're not lazy. They're not stingy.
I've been blessed to have a few of these people in my life. Every time I opened one of their gifts, I was amazed. One such gift was from a man who sent us a beautiful large basket filled with all sorts of classy gifts, including a Trapp candle set. For those unfamiliar with Trapp, they offer such unique fragrances as Orange Vanilla, Mediterranean Fig, Sugared Fruit, Wild Current, Orange Clove and Black Pepper! I just kept thinking that he cared. He really cared.
Have you had someone in your life who is a good gift-giver? Are you one? Using these old salvaged numbers to remember or mark an important date to the one you're giving the gift to would be appreciated, don't you think?
