Here we are! The final stretch before Christmas―the mad rush to get all the last minute things on your list. For some, gift giving brings joy and excitement. But it seems for the majority of us it becomes a point of unwanted stress. So why do we even do it? Do we gift out of obligation and expectation? Or because of love and gratitude?
With all of the hustle and bustle, we rarely take the time to take a step back and evaluate the reasons why we are doing what we are doing. But maybe this is exactly what we need to do. How are we caring for ourselves, our family and friends, our community? What is the best way to express love and gratitude?
Often, we get caught up in going through the motions of the holiday season: the decorations, the food, the gifts. We plan the when, where and how of the events and hopefully squeeze in a chance to give back to the community. How can we get back to the heart of the season and use this time of year as an opportunity to love and care more fully and deeply? What do the people in our lives need this season? What do we need? What if we chose to gift in response to heart, not in obligation? Let’s go the extra mile to know more fully the hearts of those we love and care about.

There is no right or wrong answer when considering love and gratitude for the receiver. This may be an extravagant gift! Or maybe something simple. Or maybe nothing tangible, simply a few hours of undivided attention. Our hope at Tailored is that we care for our people with depth, not obligation. Regardless of the gift, we want our community to feel love and gratitude and to extend it to all around them.
