Introducing The Best Christmas Gift Guide Ever

Whether it’s for Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanza, in December, we make the time to focus on celebrating miracles, faith, and family.

I love the bright lights, the joyful music, the giving spirit.

I love celebrating Christmas with my family. Though I know Christ did not remain a baby, He wasn’t literally born on December 25th, and He is the reason for all seasons, I certainly appreciate that there is a special occasion for those who believe to turn our hearts closer to Him.

It saddens me that the stresses of life, the materialization of holidays, and the pressures of the world can, at times, steer us off track and steal away the joy we can feel during this time of togetherness.

the best things in life are not things

I believe in the old saying thatthe best things in life are not things, and that’s why I’m introducing the best Christmas gift guide ever. This list may seem unsophisticated, unconventional, and even unpopular, but you will find that the results are proven, guaranteed, and have very well stood the test of time.

But beware, there is a WARNING: you will find yourself delightfully fond of the exhilarating effects, both experienced by yourself and others, when giving and receiving these gifts.

  • When you give these gifts you will feel happiness
  • When you receive these gifts you will feel blessed
  • You will actually be happier when they are returned or re-gifted
  • You will always give the right gift, even if you choose it “last minute”
  • These gifts don’t require payment or long lines and they don’t steal your sanity

FINAL Disclaimers:

  • You may definitely try this at home.
  • You are encouraged to pray well before each use.
  • You may absolutely keep them within the reach of infants and children.

introducing the best Christmas gift guide ever

Like the days of Christmas, the Best Christmas Gifts Ever are 12:

  1. Joy: Spreading a little laughter. I believe that Joy is happiness shared.
  2. Forgiveness: There is always someone we can forgive… ourselves included.
  3. Acceptance: Embracing someone or something just as he/she/it is.
  4. Attention: Remembering, visiting, showing affection.
  5. Compassion: Developing empathy, showing understanding, sharing generosity.
  6. Calmness: Peace, silence, and stillness are precious in a frantic world.
  7. Patience: A challenging virtue, a rare gift that’s sure to be treasured.
  8. Gratitude: Words of thankfulness and appreciation for what you’ve been given.
  9. Time: Time is life. Presence is far better than presents.
  10. Unity:  Fostering harmony, loyalty, team work, respect, and understanding.
  11. Wisdom: Sound advice, words of hope and encouragement, listening to learn.
  12. Love: Generous and humble service, coupled with a desire for their happiness and well-being.

What I love the most about the 12 Gifts of Christmas is that we can all give them and we can all receive them.

  • The best Christmas gifts are not wrapped.
  • The best Christmas gifts don’t break.
  • The best Christmas gifts don’t have an expiration date.
  • The best Christmas gifts don’t go out of style.
  • The best Christmas gifts are always in stock, and in endless supply… all through the year.

  2. Lovley Post. I love having a smile on my face after reading anything.
    Our greatest gift would be time. Time to enjoy each other and the amazing life we are living.

  3. Omg absolutely loved this post!!! It really is the best gift guide ever!!! You can’t purchase theost important gifts of all 😉

  4. I think that the best gift I can give to family is time and not any material thing. You are right. These are the best Christmas gifts ever. Joy and forgiveness are also hard to give for some people who hold grudges. ‘Tis the season to be happy.

  5. I love this list! I’d say I need to give more of 6 – 12 with a focus on my family and of course I’d love to receive those as well. 🙂

    Many thanks for such a list, it actually made me breath (if that makes since).
    Happy New Year!

  6. This is a great list and so true. My top picks would be attention and love, things I hope I give to my son and fiance everyday.

  7. In my household, the holiday season is a time of gathering more than gifting, so your sentiments are mine. 🙂 We shared all twelve this Christmas season and had the best time… Happy New Year!
