Gifts of Love: A Christmas Message Booklet
By Peggy, Submitted on 2015-02-25
This booklet talks about what makes a gift "great" from the perspective of both the giver and the receiver. These are great to pass out to your friends and you'll want to keep one for yourself, also.

This is a great message about making gift giving and receiving more meaningful. The sooner that you and your family and friends read this, the sooner you will save yourself a lot of money in purchases this Christmas. "The Eyring Theory of of Gift Giving and Receiving" as he dubs it himself. Since this talk was given 30 years ago at BYU it's a little less format than a First Presidency general conference talk, but it has the same compassion and feeling that makes Pres Eyring so dear and precious to us.
I came away with the conviction that it's the gifts of love that matter, not the big ticket items. I'm really stepping up the quantity of homemade thought-out gifts this year. I would give this away with your treat plates right after Thanksgiving and not wait until Christmas day. If you are a bishop, I would give it to every family at tithing settlement.
If you wait until Christmas then you run the risk that you'll read it this year, feel guilty, and then forget about it by next December. Just some thoughts from a fellow member struggling to become a saint.
