It’s this time of the year again. The most wonderful as they say and there is a lot of shopping going on. Shopping for last moment decoration, shopping delicacies to pamper our family and guests, but most importantly we buy presents.
I Believe a good present is something that you choose with love and takes a lot of thought to pick the right one. It has to be something that this person likes, could be something useful or something meaningful, something he/she always wanted or something that you know he/she should have. Most important is that the present should represent your taste combined with his/hers, and show your feelings for this person. Ideally it should be customized, something unique (remember we are talking for the ones we love) and what’s more unique from something that was made just for your loved ones?
Crafting something for the people you love is a satisfying procedure to begin with. Unfortunately we don’t always have the time to make something special for every member of our family or our beloved friends but there’s no need to worry. There are thousands of crafters all around the world who are ready to create something with the same love and care. There’s just nothing like something created by someone who loves what he does and does what he loves. Crafters are artists and laborers at the same time who enjoy creating their wares so every item holds that positive energy and believe it or not it spreads.
Buying handmade gifts is a conscious decision which helps to establish a new , more people-friendly, economic model. This year you can double the joy of offering a gift by choosing something unique for the ones you love and supporting independent artists.
Think about it…..
