"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens~
Charles Dickens nailed it. I've liked this quote ever since I came across it. It is true, for all the eleven months of the year that we get caught up in our lives, its always at year end we take stock of our lives, evaluate our decisions, we celebrate, we regret or we let go... most of us, think of someone else other than ourselves for a change...we think of GIVING... to tell the people in the circle of our lives that we are thinking of them...and to help you with that...have your thought count, here is MT's Gift Giving Guide for Christmas 2010.
I admit, most items found in my site are more suited for women than men (sorry guys!). If you are shopping by budget, please direct your cursor to the right of this webpage (http://maggiestrinketbox.blogspot.com), the items I sell are seperated by budget...below RM 20, below RM 50 etc)
