4 Reasons to Spend Halloween with Your Children

d-halloween-monster-gift-basketHalloween is a great holiday to spend with your children. Here are 4 reasons why you should spend it with your kids this year instead of hiring a babysitter and going to an adult party, dance club, or special event for the evening:

Exercise. Halloween gets you and your kids to exercise by walking around the neighborhood or at the public center's trick-or-treating night. This year maybe you can go out on a limb and put on a costume instead of just walking with your kids for safety reasons (and don't forget the free candy!).

Togetherness. There are certain times of the year, Halloween being one of those times, that your child is built up to expect family time. Your child expects you will make an effort to enjoy Halloween with them. Helping your child to plan a special Halloween costume is the first way to plan spending this fun Halloween holiday together!

Stay close to home. Halloween poses unique safety issues when thousands of teenagers and young children take to the streets for a night of trick-or-treating. When you trick-or-treat in your own neighborhood, keep your kids close to home and protect them from stranger danger. You, not babysitters or friends, are your child's best protection.

Fun. This seems like an obvious reason, but don't you want to give your children the best Halloween experience ever? Even if you are on a tight budget, you can make preparations for Halloween by visiting the local dollar store. Another fun Halloween idea is to accept the neighbors' invitation to celebrate Halloween at their house.

Halloween also brings many events (often free-of-charge) to the local community. Choose the right Halloween celebration with your kids at home or in the community! Just once you can give up the goal of winning the costume contest prize at your favorite night spot. Remember your kids love spending time with you and what better time than Halloween!

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

When you’re not sure what to buy, a gift basket for Father's Day can be an excellent option. 
Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.
Personalization of Father's Day Gift Baskets

You can also find pampering gift baskets, gardening gift baskets, and m…

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
