Christmas has become a time when the average American household can’t afford to splurge on costly electronics or DVD games. It has become a time to use our Yankee- know- how and to help each other out in seemingly small ways for us… But for benefactor of your Every Day Christmas gift it will mean more than all the gold and silver in the world. So …. take out a piece of paper…. hand make it into…. A Christmas Gift from the heart. We have been down in this place of no money to give as gifts and gave of ourselves. You know what… we received more satisfaction giving from the heart rather than the pocket book. The surprised look on their faces tells you…. you have given them a special gift and one of need! To tell you a little secret…We receive more satisfaction in giving of our time, then we did giving then a gift they may or may not have needed or even liked.
If you have done something or given something special from the heart, we would like hearing from you and your experiences.
We at Gifts and Collectibles Galore wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas from our hearts to yours. John & Carrol
