As you continue your Christmas shopping, consider giving items that one can truly use or experience. Go green and gift someone cooking classes, theater tickets, or a homemade food item. Take it one step further by agreeing to spend time together instead of buying gifts. The gift of time is one that you can't ever get back. A "gift" that is always a hit is to make a donation to the recipient's favorite charity. Show them that you love them by donating to a cause that's close to their heart. Give wisely friends!
