The giving gift

Do you have the knack to give well?

My friend Tracy is a brilliant gift giver. Whether it's for the kids or for me, she has always managed to hit just the right note. I really admire this ability, it comes from a generous heart.

In contrast, I am best with a clear mandate: 'not the blue one, Mommy!'

I want to do well but don't always get it right.

Who's the best gift giver you know? Send us a great email and we could add an extra gift to your festive season: a cool and comfy Parent24 T-shirt.

Have a wonderful holiday season, and lots of love and joy with your family.

And if at any time you feel lonely, overwhelmed or underwhelmed, remember that on Parent24 you're sure to find another parent who feels just like you.
