A Gift

June 16th, 2015 at 03:30 pm

F's school was very generous and gave me a gift at the end of my year as Parent Association President.... so nice! Here in Santa Fe, it's traditional to give a Nambe for gifts like that. Nambe is local and very unique and also useful.

If you don't know Nambe, you should look them up!

Anyway, they gave me a really beautiful cheeseboard, but it was so LARGE and something I'd only use maybe once a year. I called the Nambe store which is a 5 minute walk from my office and they said I could exchange it. I got a (much smaller!) dish, and it's really beautiful.

Part of me felt a little guilty to exchange a gift, and also I'm usually super practical, but I am uncharacteristically excited about having something beautiful.

I took a photo of it next to the Alessi bowl we got for our wedding, but I think the image thingy isn't working....

    I can see it! It looks beautiful. I think it was just fine to exchange. I think most want people to be happy with their gift.

    I wasn't familiar with Nambe so looked at their Amazon pages. Wow, what elegant merchandise! Enjoy your lovely dish of choice. According to Miss Manners, a gift once given is totally owed by the recipient. You are free to do what you wish. Every time you use your new dish you will be reminded of your Presidential term thru 2015.

    I agree with Miss Manners. A gift should not be an obligation or a burden. It is yours to keep, exchange, dump, whatever! You made a good choice.
