The Gift I'm Giving for Christmas This Year:

I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Christmas giving has always been hard for me. Don't get me wrong, I love to give gifts. I think it's the pressure of Christmas giving nowadays. It has become a simple exchange of goods; a transaction forced upon us by the constant avalanche of Christmas as consumerism advertising.

A gift shouldn't feel like a transaction, it should be personal. It's like that old phrase, "It's the thought that counts."  It's not what the gift is but the personal touch in making it or finding it, and connecting it to the receiver.

This year Christmas giving is going to be easy for me. Everyone on my list is going to receive the same thing. Well, the same thing but different.

Recently I was introduced to a company that will take any photo and have it printed on glass. The company is called Fracture. I ordered one to test it out and it is really cool. My plan is to secretly obtain a photo from each person on my list and print it on glass for them.

You should check it out. If you order one, try the discount code MPU15 for 15% off.

Note: I have no affiliation with Fracture and am not receiving any compensation.
