MAKING This Holiday Season the Best!

It's hard to believe that we are less than seven days away from Thanksgiving Week. It seems like 2008 has just flown by and now it's time to start wrapping it up.

Speaking of wrapping, one cannot conjure the end of the year without thinking of holiday gift giving. This has been an extremely, tough year for many, many folks and we are no way out of the woods yet on all the financial mayhem that has landed in many people's back yards. Not only back yards, but front yards as well, and all through their homes and lives.

We are well aware of the struggles throughout our economy and economies throughout the world. This is not the year for extravaganza shopping and spending frenzy. This is not the year for over-the-top outrageousness and ridiculousness. If ever there was a year for smart, sane, and simple gift giving, this is the year.

So what am I proposing? Take the time we have spent in holiday seasons past galloping from mall to mall or trolling from website to website and spend that time making those special someones a present from the heart.

What could that be? Look at your talents. Can you bake something salty or sweet or simply scrumptious? Can you provide a skill or helping hand, such as a woodworking project, handmade item, or simple artistic expression to those you love and cherish?

What could YOU make? What about your digital photographic skills? Or maybe you are a Technology Talent and you could give a gift of your time to someone special to help that person become a bit more technologically skilled for the New Year.

What services could you MAKE available to the folks on your holiday gift list? Spend some "think" time during your commute and have a conversation with yourself on what gifts of you could you give this holiday.

Let me know at what gift ideas you've come up with for 2008.

Then go MAKE IT your best holiday season ever!
Until Next Time…
