I woke up this morning, Dec 3 2013 – the wind was blowing and it was minus  3 degrees outside. I noticed a wisp of snow on the grass and my thoughts  went to “I wonder what kind of Christmas we are going to have?”


Just after seeing the rush of Black Friday the past weekend, my mind stopped on the idea of gifts – the perfect gift – and how meaningful will it really be?


In the book THE 5 LANGUAGES OF LOVE, many times the perfect meaningful gift is not what you can find in a store.


My love language is “time”.  The best gift Jared, Tianna & Marlene can give me is doing something together.  Some of my favorites are snowboarding, camping, waterskiing, biking, motorcycling, a nice “get away” or just sitting and talking in the hot tub.


So this Christmas season, if you are looking for the perfect gift, here are 5 ideas.  Everyone has one love language that they value above anything else – some have more than one.


Quality Time: spending time with special people through activities & conversations

Acts of Service: doing things for the person.  Are they overjoyed when you wash their car, the windows or make dinner, arrange a getaway, put the kids to bed?

Physical Touch: does your kid like wrestling or love hugs? Or how about your spouse – a hug, holding hands, getting a kiss before you leave for work and when you get home?

Words of Encouragement / affirmation: “I am so proud of you!”  “You are an awesome cook!”  “You look great in that outfit!”

Receiving gifts: some feel lack of gifts = lack of love (it's a symbol of love) big gifts, small gifts, and even just the anticipation of gifts is all good


Intentionally make this Christmas and New Year the best one yet with the perfect gifts, words & hugs, and remembering  the real meaning of Christmas


Merry Christmas!

Larry & Marlene
