    Christmas is just a few days away, and so I’m wondering, if you are a caregiver (family, friend or professional) what would you appreciate most as a Christmas gift this year? What is the most memorable or best gift you’ve ever received from someone you were caring for?

    See, caregiving can be exhausting, both physically and emotionally. Having a pillow customized just for me, with maybe a comforting quote or a picture that meant something special, made those moments of rest feel like a warm hug. It wasn’t just about the pillow itself, but the thought and effort put into making something uniquely mine.
