" And the well-dressed woman sighed as though Christmas giving were an ordeal to be endured instead of the joyous experience It should he. The. remark and the sigh called to my mind another woman's attitude toward giving. When a close friend of hers moved into a new home and several friends bought gifts for the new house she wanted to give something, too. But knew she couldn't afford the kind of gift she.would have liked to buy. So she told the friend with the new house who was worrying iibont all the curtains to be made: "II you'll get the material I'll make the curtains for your bedroom." She did too. And here was the most appreciated gift of all. Spirit Back of Gift Is Important It is tiiat way with giving. It isn't Just a matter of how much you spend. It Is a matter of how much thought you put Into the gifts you buy or make. It 1« far more Christmas-like In spirit to take a friend a Jar of homemade Jam. a potted plant jrou have started yourself, a box of candy or cookies from your own kitchen, than to say: "Let's not bother with giving each other gills this year." Then, too. with Imagination you can always find'an Inexpensive gift ih£t !£•:!! jive pleasure. The mistake cornea In thinking a gilt has to cost a certain amount or to be flashy enough to make a "showing." Ollts shouldn't carry price tags Not t even In the giver's eyes.
