Throughout the year I visit LivingSocial.com regularly to find gifts for my family. I always go back to the site around Christmas time because I can get more for my buck. It has allowed me to give the gift of companionship. Anyone can get a monetary gift or something tangible, but it is those gifts that you can share together that will give memories for a lifetime. Some of the things in the past (and my future) are painting with my parents, watching the Harlem Globetrotters with my children, or a date night with my husband at the Funny Bone Comedy Club. I found this site and now I can give memories instead of tangible items that are tossed aside right after Christmas.
Last year, on LivingSocial.com I found a steal! 80% off family photos at JC Penny Portraits. I purchased the deal for my aging grandparents as a Christmas present to hand out to the family. This is something they would never do on their own and when I gave it to them, they laughed and said they would only do it if we had lunch with them afterward. So I found myself making the appointment for them and, of course, meeting them for the photo shoot and then lunch.
I had my two kids, husband and my younger sister with me. When my grandparents arrived, they brought my parents too. While in the waiting room watching my kids run around and catching up with my parents, the lady taking the photos motioned to me to come into the room. That is when the magic happened. Before you knew it, my whole family was in the room. The photos that we got from Grandpa and Grandma were incredible. You could see that sparkle in their eye. But the photos of my parents, kids, grandparent and husband and sister were irreplaceable. We had never had a picture of all the generations like that. What a wonderful experience for us all!
