Gifts, Gifts And More Gifts…

For many years I published the top 21 tips, techniques and strategies for getting out of the holiday gift buying doldrums.

This is my top tip for gift giving…give them a promise of your time. It could be babysitting for your brother’s kids; detailing your best friends really awfully dirty car; driving a couple of hours to have lunch with a family member; formally sharing your best leadership practices with your team so they get to know you better; weeding your neighbors garden. One of my favorite gifts to date was from my beloved son-in-law who washed and waxed my Highlander as a surprise. The guy can polish a SUV, let me tell you.

An easy way to give of yourself is to think through those people who you miss or you think need you and then make a list. Get out a calendar and fill in the dates of when you will do your “giving of time gift” and then write up that holiday card with your precious gift. Just so you know, you will feel as good about giving your time as they feel about getting your time.

May I help?
