1 The Most Important Gifts You Can Give This Season Shaunti Feldhahn

It’s that time of year again. Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Only this many shopping days ‘til Christmas to buy those important gifts. Sale. Sale. Sale. And then you turn on the television and see those luxury car commercials. You know — the ones that show a sparkling new expensive car in the driveway with a humongous red bow and a blissful loved one.

First question: Who gives a car for Christmas?!

Second question: Even if you don’t give a car, do you sometimes fret and spend way too much angst and/or money trying to figure out the perfect gift?

Guilty.

Instead of investing all your time and money on stuff, plan to give something a little more personal, inexpensive, and powerfully transforming this year. As I was doing a whole study on kindness this past few years for The Kindness Challenge, I discovered that giving or sharing something precious to you is a particularly powerful way of sending a message of care to someone else. So, this Christmas, consider giving these three gifts that make a difference in any relationship — during and after the holidays.
