Last Minute Gift Idea

Do you want to give a meaningful gift to your family, but feel like you’re running out of time this holiday season? Invest in an estate plan for your family! It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.

My husband and I love his parents to pieces. They are delightful, warm, and giving people. They love to hunt for the perfect presents for us, whispering secrets and asking hushed questions, plotting for months ahead of Christmas and birthdays. We would love to be able to return the favor, but here’s the catch—they are impossible to buy for! They are in a much higher income bracket than we are, and they tend to buy things they want when they want them.

I am sure you all have someone in your life that is equally hard to buy for. They already own things they need, and they don’t want for much either. Sometimes I solve this problem with gift cards or handmade items, but I know the limits of my crafting talents, and gift cards can seem so impersonal.

So now, it is three days before Christmas and you are still wondering what to get for that certain someone. My office doesn’t offer traditional gift cards, but have you thought about offering to pay a portion of the legal fees for someone you love to have their estate plan created or updated? I know, it isn’t something you can watch them unwrap and see joy spread across their face. But it is practical, and useful, and shows you really care.

The holiday season is meant for spending time with your friends and family, reflecting on all the blessings you have in your life. It is also a perfect time to talk to your family about your final wishes and to suggest they think about what they want as well. No one wants to think about death, especially during the holidays, but what better gift to give someone than the knowledge and security that everything is planned and taken care of in the event of their passing?

If you’re ready to give the gift of estate planning this season, give me a call at 800-990-2048. I look forward to speaking with you!

Yours truly,
