Robyn: I love to shop and make smart purchases, but I don't like to waste time. I also enjoy giving meaningful gifts and express my feelings to those people in my life who mean the world to me. Every day we have wonderful opportunities to give gifts to each other and many of those gifts don't even cost a penny. A kind word or a thoughtful deed are both free and fabulous! When I wrote the book, When Words Matter Most: Thoughtful Deeds and Kind Words For Every Occasion, (Crown Publishers), my goal was to share creative ways you can give gifts and do deeds that make someone else really feel special. Spreading kindness is the greatest gift we can give one another.
With many live appearances on television over the years, I also have gotten to know a wealth of products, resources and the top toys for kids that make incredible gifts and wanted to share them. For over two decades, I have studied gift giving and learned a great deal about which gifts endure time, become a treasured memory and which ones collect dust!
When writing When Words Matter Most, I asked hundreds of individuals what were the most memorable and inspiring deeds, words or gifts they’ve ever received and their inspiring answers are in this book. From happy occasions to sad ones including sorrow and tragedies, I captured ways you can make a difference and really touch another person’s life in an extraordinary way.
