025: Gift Expectations


None of us want there to be any drama or disappointment around gift giving or receiving. But the truth is that it happens. 

In this episode, we’re talking all about gifts and the expectations we have around them. This is a subject that isn’t often talked about because we want to think of gifts as this magical thing, but that’s not always the case.

I talk about ditching the thoughts that aren’t serving you around gifting, why the “rules” about gifting aren’t always accurate and how I learned that gifting doesn’t always have to be a surprise to be special.

What you’ll find in this episode:

  • A segment on what’s new over in the shop
  • Why I wanted to talk about gift-giving and receiving
  • Thoughts that aren’t serving you with gift expectations
  • Why you should throw the “rules” about gifts out the window
