Sorry Gift

Apology / Saying Sorry

"An apology is the superglue of life. It can repair just about anything." - Lynn Johnston

Saying sorry can be a hard thing to do, especially when we have said or done something that has truly hurt someone we care about. The difficulty of expressing our regret, however, should never put us off doing so - relationships can be severely damaged by waiting too long to make amends.

If the reason for our hesitance lies in the fact that we cannot seem to find the right words to apologize, a gift can help to bring across the message of "sorry" for us.

Gift ideas

Food: Driving you nuts

We all drive each other crazy sometimes, yet the people close to us still put up with us even when we are being difficult or annoying. A big bag or basket of different nuts, peanut brittle, chocolate-coated nuts, along with a note saying "I know I sometimes drive you nuts. Thank you for loving me regardless!" makes a great gift to show appreciation or to say sorry.

Electronics: MP3 Player

Make this gift more meaningful by including a few special songs when you purchase your choice of mp3-player.

Choose songs that relate to the recipient and yourself (songs from a joint vacation, a night out together, etc.) or which have a 'theme' (songs of encouragement, love songs, happy tunes). Explain the meaning behind your choice of songs in a personal message to make your gift perfect!

Symbols

Red Tape

A binding object in the color of danger, it symbolizes a warning to confront frustration in order to understand and dissolve them, if possible, or to accept them if a simple solution is impossible.

Tea

Serving tea is a time-honoured symbol of friendship. The Chinese ceremonial tea was established as a time to set aside conflicts and come to peace with one's self, as well as with one another.

Quotes

Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

Mark Twain

Apology is a lovely perfume; it can transform the clumsiest moment into a gracious gift.

Margaret Lee Runbeck

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.

Henry Ward Beecher
