I simply love the gift giving process–the whole thing–the shopping, selection and wrapping. But the best part of gift giving, is presenting the gift to someone you love, in this case my precious niece, Ida (6 years) and nephew, Reggie (3 1/2). There’s something completely magical that happens when their eyes see the gift and they rip it open. It all happens fast and furiously. Following the initial excitement, the kids sort of go into a trance; they spread out all of the gifts or gift components all over the floor and PLAY.
