When my almost 19-year-old son came home for his first winter break from college on December 1st, he asked me: "Where are our advents calendar socks?"
And my 16-year-old son chimed in: "Yes, don't we get socks this year?" 🤨
Oops... I had thought: "I'm done with that, they are too old for my homemade advents calendar..." 🤔
But I was wrong.
Many years ago, when they were toddlers, I didn't have the traditional German advents calendar at hand, here in the US.
So I created my own unique advents calendars for my unique boys. Being European, I like to reuse and upcycle things first. And the single socks that the dryer hadn't eaten cam in very handy, and are certainly unique. 🤪
Realizing that my almost 19-year-old feels he is not too old, I did some supermom magic. 🦸🏻♀️
In just a few hours I got 24 little gifts. And I filled 24 mismatched socks for each of my boys. I chose nice chocolates, pencils, mini aftershaves and all kinds of other small, but (mostly) useful little items. 🎁
And then I declared innocently, that there was "just a little delay". 😇
My sons smiled happily. My heart warmed. Who would have thought that these little traditions and small gifts bring so much joy? 😀
I love to inspire business owners to use the mostly untapped power of smart (business) gifting and create extraordinary connections and relationships.
My goal is to make the gift recipients FEEL GOOD. Show that the giver really cares and stays top of mind.
