Where are we this week?
Hanging with our besties, Let's Travel Family! We surprised the girls two days early and saw them on Thanksgiving day.
It's been six months since we've seen them last, and I think the kids have been counting down the days since then until they could meet up again!
Follow us on our journey on Insta as the FieldTripGypsies!
Just in case you're dreaming of joining us on the road...
If you've been listening in about our travels and are dreaming about getting YOUR family on the road, remember all my resources listed over at the Family Adventures page, as well as the biggie - come see us in person at the first ever RV Family Conference!

C-Wired Personality Styles
For a C, you want to look for more informational and detailed gifts.
Support their hobbies/desires and get items that allow them to research and go deep into learning.
For something to do, go to an escape room - they are cropping up all over, and you want a high C in those rooms to see the details and help solve the mystery!
Detailed projects, like model cars and planes, paint by number…
Look at memberships to educational facilities, like zoos, science centers, museums, etc.
If they are outdoorsy, look for multi-function practical items, like a Leatherman!
S-Wired personality Style
For those S personality styles, you want to look at things that are more relational and comfort focused.
Get them a gift basket of comfort - with cozy blankets, candles, and slippers.
Pamper them - give THEM a service, like a massage or spa.
Do something for them - services like housecleaning or a fancy meal of all their favorite comfort food.
I-wired styles want to have fun! They want to be entertained.
They love experiential things, like theme park passes or concert tickets.
Classes - for I styles, strangers are just friends they haven't met yet! So going to a new class - dance, pottery, fitness, cooking...a way to socialize and meet new people is a plus.
And look at accessories! Bling for body, car, home and more. My mother loves to accessorize - jewelry, scarves, hats, a cool piece of art, etc.
For a high D, it's all about the end result, so things that support their goals and big visions is great.
Getting them a fitbit or pedometer helps them track and see what they have accomplished.
Giving them a challenge, like a high ropes course package, or sports car driving
Memberships to a gym or climbing gym is great as well
Look at a whiteboard - for big ideas- a "get it done" board
You want to identify things that support the tasks they want to complete - what are their goals/passions? Get something to support that.

Your Weekly Challenge:
Now, our challenge for you this week: don’t just dread gift-giving. Look at this as an opportunity to delight someone you love, and really seek to find something that fits their personality style. This isn’t always something that can fit into a box. The biggest gift you can give someone is making them feel like you see them, love them, and truly hear them.
So recognize and honor their strengths, and remember, the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us.
