WINTER MIGHT BE the coldest time of year in terms of weather, but it can also be the warmest in love and cheer thanks to that wonderful spirit of giving. Of course, we all love getting presents over the holidays, but there’s something extra special about seeing someone we care about open the presents we so carefully chose for them. That’s why our practice is taking a moment to look back on our favorite memories of gift-giving!
Our Team’s Favorite Christmas Gift-Giving Memories
Our office participates each year in the Toys For Tots drive to collect new unwrapped toys for children. Not only do our doctors and staff donate, but we also asks patients if they would like to participate as well. This year, together with the help of our wonderful patients, we collected more toys than ever! It is always our sincere hope that these toys will bring lots of smiles to all of the little faces during the Christmas season.
In the past, we have also participated in Operation Christmas Child.
Looking For Fun Gift Exchange Ideas?
If you’re looking for a new gift-giving tradition to try out, take a look at a few of the ideas here. We’ve shared two of the ones we thought were unique!
- “Cookie-swap packing party. Besides cookies to swap at the party, guests bring extras, along with metal tins, takeout containers, plastic boxes, and packing materials. Together, you carefully box up the extra cookies to ship to out-of-town family and friends.”
- “Swap toys with Santa. Along with cookies and milk, leave (gently used) old toys under the tree on Christmas Eve for Santa to “take back to the North Pole.” (You can donate them to an organization like Toys for Tots or Goodwill.)”
