Was wondering who recycles & doesn't recycle gifts. With the holiday season upon us our hearts & generosity over flow with appreciation and kindness. I have several clients every year who feel the need to get me a gift to show their appreciation & gratitude for my services throughout the year. Many of my clients will give a Bonus Tip at the holidays while others purchase something for me, some purchase gift certificates for me to use/share with my family. All is honestly & truly appreciated. The bonus tip is great, the gift certificates are well used but I personally wish those that buy me a gift wouldn't. Their loyal patriotism to me is a gift in itself. I sometimes recycle for I feel I already have enough material things. I have found my self short handed on a gift for someone who I forgot or for a person who brings someone along unannounced. So I quickly wrap or bag an item I have previously received for the guest so they have a little something and don't feel awkward sitting amongst everyone with a gift in hand. Plus there have been times when I have given a gift directly to a homeless shelter, charity or added it to a drop box in the mall. I feel some else really could use it & need it more than me.
