Most years the holidays are a mix of joy (Christmas songs have that part covered) and the angst (a less common holiday song theme) of trying to find or make gifts that are meaningful. On a budget. A CNN article from last year had some good ideas -- being honest, regifting, etc.
Christa and I have also learned a few things through trial and error in this area. Reflection helps. Patience is called for. Also - creativity, planning and (go figure) trust!
If you're facing a Meaningful Gifts Budget Challenge this year may you find grace for yourself and others and take the chance to learn something in the process.
