The Perfect Gift, by Bronwyn Jameson
Almost as much as choosing the perfect gift, I love the wrapping. I save up the gifts for an intensive day of wrapping, with all my carefully chosen papers and ribbons and bows laid out before me, all so prettily tempting. I’m not a fan of the monotone gift wrap, not at Christmas. I adore the colours of the season, the combination of red and green and gold, the tinsel and sparkles and patterns. I love the picture they make piled beneath the decorated tree, and the anticipation of waiting for the great unwrapping.
But the perfect gift doesn’t always come prettily wrapped under the tree. It’s often not store bought but homemade, thoughtfully chosen as perfect for that one person and created with wholehearted love. Home baking, a memory book or collection of photos, a hand stitched blanket or craft keepsake, a voucher to babysit or cook a special meal or take on another task in a busy person’s life.
