Little Gifts


Little gifts connect people IRL.  They let a person know you’re thinking of them, as more than as a face on a screen, a voice on the phone, or the writer of a text or email.  

You can give one to a teacher, a colleague, a relative, a friend.  I gave a pair of scissors to a factory manager who oversees my orders.  She loved it!   I gave it to her not as a business related bribe ($12 scissors can hardly be called that!), but simply to show my appreciation.  

Surprising someone with a little gift can be just as rewarding to the giver as it is to a recipient.   Try it.
