Thoughtful Gifts

June 13, 2014

in the generous life

I was gifted with the sweetest of birthday gifts (thanks, Hannah, Laura & Cheryl of Hanaura Crafts!).

 

I thought I would share it with y’all. It’s an amazing bit of handiwork (I’m told it took about 7 hours to make) and it’s a thoughtful gift too. I’m a bibliophile (I love, love, love books) and I write The Generous Wife so this book sculpture is a uniquely personalized gift (I see a cross in the “T” as well, so as a Jesus follower I find it very cool).

(Widget liked it too!)
And because I can’t help myself (here comes the generous application) … we can learn from this in our gift giving to our guys. Take into consideration your husband’s interests and preferences when choosing a gift.

Does he need a new shirt? Buy one in his favorite color. Does he want a new drink bottle? Get one labeled with his favorite sport team. What does he talk about? What does he gravitate toward?

Listen, observe and learn. Gift creatively.

The love of books is a love which requires neither justification, apology, nor defense.  John Alfred Langford
