Choosing a gift

22 Jan

Back to the business of blogging….I have so many things on my mind!

I am unpacking …and amongst the things I have brought back with me is the chocolates I got for Christmas from my niece. Unbelievable that I did not eat them straight away..but the last time I intended to eat them, I took a photo instead and left them untouched again.

A chocolate for Christmas can be a very ordinary gift…or it could be like these…too damn cute to eat !!

Yes, she is just 1 year old, so I know her mom picked it out..but it brings me back to the issue of attention to detail when you pick a gift.

Just looking at this – you know that the decision was to buy a chocolate..but then it could not just be any chocolate..it had to be special, it had to stand out, it had to be something I would remember when I next Christmas try to think what I got from everyone and it had to create special emotion when seeing it, opening it….

And it did all of the above. Mission complete. These chocolates were cute, special, memorable…and I don’t even know what they taste like… but who cares.

My son says that I can’t eat them now, because then I will have to tweet about it…

Let me just correct that. I have not stopped eating. I still intend enjoying all good things in life. It is the overeating that will send me tweeting !!

Just wanted to share the cute-ness and impression of a gift that was carefully selected. Paying attention to detail pays great dividends in the heart and mind of the receiver of such gift !!
