In our hurried world it is easy for gift buying to feel like just another mundane task. But by making your gift a part of your holiday tradition, you can turn the mundane into a cherished memory. A lovely way to do this is by helping a loved one start a collection by creating a gifting tradition. Purchasing a compact for your niece or buying your nephew a different pocket knife every year for the holidays are just two examples of gifting traditions. To choose which collection to begin for your loved ones consider the things they find joy in or begin a collection with something that represents an interest or a special memory that you both share. Are they a fashionista? Perhaps, beginning a hat collection would be the solution. Or is your tradition to always cook together? Maybe an apron collection would be the perfect gifting tradition. It's the tiny traditions that keep us close during the holidays so begin a new one this season and start meaningful collections for the ones you hold dear.
