Why Give Gifts?

Ideally, a gift is not an obligation but an offering of our heartfelt gratitude, love or appreciation for a fellow human. When we choose a gift for another, we are reflecting on what might bring comfort or joy. When we choose a gift made by hand, we are connected to the source of creative energy that motivates makers. In a time that we can have anything in the world delivered to our door, we can choose to support our community instead. It’s a wonderful life.
