Give your family a holiday in Mallorca this Christmas
What would be the best family Christmas present in the world?
It appeared in the paper around the time of it's publication and popped up recently when I was looking for something else, as is often the case. The story: "The Best Christmas Present in the World" written by Michael Morpurgo is woven around a single letter, dated 1914, found in an old roll top desk and written from the trenches on Christmas day. It is hard not to feel moved by the beauty of the white flag hoisted that icy war-torn morning, the rum and sausages shared, the football match played by young men on no-man´s land. It is just a small story, but the message is huge.
What does your family want for Christmas this year?
In the story it is a letter, returned to its rightful owner, many decades later. But is it not also the feeling of pleasure from finding the letter and delivering it? Of giving it back, of giving someone a beautiful memory.
To me, and when I talk about Christmas presents with friends, family and colleagues, most agree, the best gifts of all are often those you cannot wrap up in a box. Sometimes it is a visit from someone special, others a visit somewhere special. Sometimes a combination of both.
The best Christmas present in the world will be the one where you are giving of yourself; your time, your space, your attention and your love and affection. What could be better?
How about giving your family a Christmas present that will last forever?
Imagine the joy of giving or receiving a week full of sunshine, a break somewhere warm near the sea? A fully inclusive holiday, where everything is taken care of, where all that is required of you, is that you have a good time.
Can you imagine anything better than a pair of flight tickets and a week escape in a beautiful place? Wouldn't a holiday be the best present in the world?
And the bonus is that you will be giving this present to yourself too. It could be a holiday with your spouse, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, friends or family. It could be a holiday with a cycling club or training team. It could be just you and the kids.
The latest iphone or a new car doesn't even compare to the excitement they will feel about their up-coming holiday away!
