The present of presence

Want to give gifts this year that are meaningful for both the recipient and yourself?

Give the gift of your presence.
Show up in their lives.
Spend time.
Put down your phone and pay attention to who is in front of you.
Be present in this moment, now.

Invite someone for a walk.
Plan to meet for lunch.
Visit a museum.
Take the time to connect.

Relationships give our lives meaning.
Share experiences and conversations with the people
you feel close to, or that you’d like to know better.

No fancy ribbons, bows, or wrapping paper needed.
The present of your presence isn’t more stuff in someone’s life.
It is a reflection of what has meaning and what we value.

Make merry.
Be bright.
Show up as love.
