A co-worker was brainstorming of where he could go to buy his wife a purse that she has been wanting for a while, but he needed to buy it on final sale because he knew that she would try to return it, saying it was too much of a splurge. So clever, so cute.
Gift giving is a great time to splurge on someone, to get them something that they wouldn't necessarily get for themselves, for whatever reason. Whether it is an item of monetary value, or something homemade, the joy of gift giving is that it makes a loved one happy. It starts as a kid when you paint a pretty picture for your Mom, or that art class coffee mug made just for Dad.

Give this gift to someone you love and they will be forever grateful. Or better yet, put it on your list for Santa to stuff in your stocking!
