Gift giving can be tricky. Not in a bad way, but in the sense that you want to make sure you are giving a gift that will be cherished and used.
No one wants to give a gift that will stay in a box and be tossed out like a bad habit. Gift giving has to be thoughtful and done with purpose. Today I am going to share the secret to gift giving and some special gifts for her.
I am also going to share the Cost Plus World Market Star Maker Song Constest Campaign and details on how you or someone you know could end up in a recording studio in L.A.
What is the meaning of gift giving?
Gift giving means gifting another person (or even your self) with something perceived as special. It’s generally a well thought out gift for a family member, loved one, friend, etc. It’s something that will make them feel a little extra special.
For example, my daughter loves to sing and she also loves to relax. She knows how to kick off her shoes and just meditate at that very moment. Because of that, I am putting together a basket of her favorite relaxing bath items, along with a new Christmas CD from GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-platinum star Jesse J.
Cost Plus World Market is partnering with Jessie J. on their holiday campaign. Along with featuring an original recording of Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town in their new Christmas video, Jessie J. will also be choosing the winning performance for World Market’s Star Maker Song Contest.
One lucky winner will have a chance to record their version of “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” in Hollywood, Ca. with a top music producer and a $1,000 World Market gift card.
Why gift giving is important
Gift giving is important. It’s just as important to know who you are gifting and what purpose your gift is going to serve. That’s why this relaxing gift basket I am giving my daughter is music inspired.
You have to ask yourself, “am I satisfying a need or a want?” “Am I tying in something emotional with the gift so they will remember my thoughtfulness behind that gift?”
There are a lot of nuances that go into that perfect gift.
I will be heading into my local Shreveport, Louisiana store Cost Plus World Market to find those perfect, memorable gifts.

My hope is to inspire her to relax, and also sing her favorite recorded version of Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town! Christmas music and this song, in particular, makes me feel like a kid again.
Speaking of being a kid again, check out the video below. This little boy is on a quest to find Santa Claus’s favorite cookies but finds something much more exciting.
The spot features an original recording of “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town” from UK recording artist and 2018 winner of China’s Singer, Jessie J.
