In the spirit of gift-giving, Julie and Gina share their tips for giving great gifts to your love and a few of their favorite gifts for your sweetie this holiday season.
"Making a gift meaningful is about listening to your partner and remembering what is meaningful to them."
"The why of the gift, the symbolism of it, is more important than the actual gift."
"The coupon book gift only works if you actually do the thing. Don't give a gift you're not going to follow through on."
"I listened to you about what is meaningful to you."
"What are the things that make you feel considered, seen, and cared about?"
"How can I make your daily life easier?"
Start a list on your notes app on your phone of things that are exciting or meaningful to them and grow it all year so you have it to reference when you want to plan a gift for them.
