These tacky calendars that businesses mail to you. Yes, my mother taught me that you should always be gracious etc. Yes, it's the thought that counts. HOWEVER I received a few of these this year and they go right into the goodwill pile where goodwill will probably throw them away.
When I had a business I would get at least 10 paper calendars in various forms. Send me a pen. My bank gave me a cute little spray hand sanitizer. But an old-school calendar, please save your money Mr. Insurance Broker. A card would have been just as nice.
The best gift that I received from a business this year was from Like Twice. liketwice.com is a website that buys and sells gently used clothing. They send you a bag. You fill it up and send to them at their expense and they pay you in store credit or cash! I've sent them a bunch of stuff that I couldn't sell on ebay and they sent me a lot of money. This was stuff that I would have donated so it was like a gift. On top of that, they sent me this yesterday.
Way better than a calendar!
Be sure to enter my contest for the gorgeous Fresh Produce Scarf before December 26th!
Merry Chritmas. Hope it is great!
