Giving The Gift Of Christmas This Holiday Season
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Does not being able to spend money during the holidays got you down? Don't worry, you're not alone.
But local therapist Janice Hendrix says focus on what Christmas is about.
Give the gift of a service or a simple note to a loved one expressing how much they mean to you.
Hendrix states this is a more touching gift than a brand new toy that breaks in a few weeks.
"I think in society that we're in today we have equated love with gifts. The bigger the gift, the more we love someone and that is totally unrealistic and so I think we need to get away from that and start thinking about the intent," says Hendrix.
After her husband passed away several years ago, Hendrix likes to gives the gift of a memory to her children.
She takes them to dinner, followed by a show and the children look forward to the occasion each year.
