Do you like to give gifts? I do! I LOVE seeing somebody’s face light up when they see the thoughtful something that I picked out for them.

What I’m talking about when I say “Gifts that Last” though, is not the cute little glass octopus I picked up for my son (his favorite animal in the whole world). I’m talking about the intangible gifts we give our children; the ones that make a lasting impact on their lives.

I wanted to share an article I read the other day about gifts for your children.

I believe lists like the one in this article are not really an absolute but more of a guide. A few of the ones I really like are: love, encouragement, meals together, imagination, contentment, faith and time. I try to give these to my son every chance I get. I’m not perfect, I sometimes get busy and forgetful and frustrated…but I try and that is what’s important.

What do you think about this? What ‘gifts’ do you give your children?
