Christmas 2016 has come and gone…and Santa and our family and friends were unbelievably generous this year! So now here is a rundown of some of our favorite gifts: fuzzy dog beds, slipper-socks, monogrammed sweatshirt, lottery tickets, coloring calendar, pjs (always a favorite), red and green dog bone with rope, wine topper, and a Deadpool lunchbox. My aunt loved her People magazine subscription; my mom loved her monogrammed purse; my nieces loved their new perfume. The guys appreciated the new flashlights, power washer, and of course, favorite football team attire. Gifts are great! And there is something really special about giving and receiving gifts. When you find the perfect gift for that someone special, the gift you know will be one of the “favorites” of the year, you feel good. When you open that perfect gift someone carefully chose for you, you feel good. Don’t let Christmas be the only time you give “favorite” gifts. Communication gifts can be given all through the year. When you give the gift of your attention and you work to really listen and connect with someone else, when you work to communicate in a positive way, when you use strategies to communicate more effectively, everyone feels good. etc Strategies believes that good communication strategies can be the best gift you can give or get. And good communication gifts make everyone feel good!
