Looking for a unique holiday gift?
Last year in December I was asked if I were available to call a family square dance party on the 27th. My client had asked her daughter-in-law what she wanted for a gift, and the young woman replied, "I don't want to open another present -- I want family time."
Mom booked the lobby of a church around the corner from their house,
and picked up a couple dozen bandanas from the dollar store.
Daughter-in-law opened a box of bandanas, and had to guess what this
They had a great time. Four adult kids and SOs, 'tween grands, and a couple of toddlers meant that we had 16 dancers, and spares to help the tiny ones. An hour of fun for me, and long-lasting family memories for them. Mom set her tablet down; I picked it up and walked around videoing the proceedings for them.
|Best part: it wasn't a gift for one person, to be worn or used or eaten, then forgotten. They all shared it.|
