My wife and I are exceptionally blessed. We don’t need anything. Therefore we don’t buy much in the line of gifts for each other. I bought her a gift certificate to her favorite spa: I have to “outsource” some of my pampering of her. She is getting me a magazine subscription to a publication I like to read.
We took the money we would have spent on his and hers Lexi (the plural of Lexus) and bought diapers, feminine hygiene products and food for the pantry that our church runs. This isn’t just checkbook charity. These are people we normally have dinner with on Tuesday nights.
