Hats on Your Holiday Wish List

Crown Cap Fur Hat - The Mink TrooperHave you made your Holiday Wish List yet? Instead of putting family members and friends off with meaningless noises (Oh, I don’t need anything or I’ll love whatever you give me), let them know what gift would really make you happy.

Tell them something that you want and will make use of — if it’s an expensive fur hat, then tell them to all chip in and make it a group present.

Everyone knows that giving is beneficial to both parties:

[giving] increases the bond between us and the person to whom we have given, tells us about ourselves and generally increases our feelings of competence.

Do your loved ones a favor, then. Make a list of hats you’d really like (check it twice) and then receive the gifts with honest pleasure, joy and sincere thanks. Not only will you have some great hats to wear, but by allowing the gifter to “attend” your needs (or desires), that person’s affection for you will actually grow.

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer, List Maker
and CEO Hartford York
