The Only Thing I Want for Christmas

Merry Christmas folks!

When the department stores are decked out with pine trees and snowy trinkets, the weather didn’t get any colder — because it’s a tropical country here — yet what it signified was, the end of year is near.

As I gathered my thoughts for a review of 2016 and plans for 2017, I wanted to share something I’ve learned for the past few days, and also some pretty photos I’ve snapped.

This Christmas I learned that instead of gifting physical gifts, why don’t we do something for a change and start to gift “experience”.

Let’s give our loved ones something they can remember us by, gifts like preparing a home cook meal, a dinner for two, spa indulgence time, watch a comedy together, be healthy and exercise together, pick up the phone and call someone you’ve been missing or just spending time chatting with closed ones over a pot of tea.

These “experiences” helped create unique memories together with the people who matter most in the festive season and what could be better than receiving gift items that we sometimes may not want, right? 🙂
