Does Gift Giving Stress you Out?
The holiday season is here, and the time has come for gift gathering and giving. It’s a joyful time, but behind the joy is that unwelcome twinge of stress and worry epitomized in the notion, “what on earth am I supposed to get this person?”
We’ve all been there… stewing, musing, wondering, worrying over what gift could possibly be right for that special person. Maybe it’s an extended family member you don’t know too well; maybe you have a new friend or coworker that you want to dazzle with a thoughtful gift. Maybe your recipient simply entertains hobbies and passions that you know nothing about. Gift cards are easy, but impersonal, and no one wants to waste money on a gift that won’t be loved and appreciated.
If your loved one happens to be an acupuncturist, herbalist, massage therapist, chiropractor, naturopath or lover of traditional medicine, don’t worry for another second. We can help. And the best news is, we have gift ideas and options in every price range.
