Many people like to create a simple scrapbook that details your history with the person you are gifting. Pictures, written memories and even videos can make this ultra special and allow you to truly put your heart in the gift.
Personalized Coffee Mugs
Some paint, a white dollar store coffee mug and a little bit of ingenuity can create a fantastic DIY Christmas present. Simply get out the old paintbrush and create something unique and one of a kind. This one is great for the kids to do for mom or dad.
Come on. Really? Who wouldn’t love a beautiful tray of chocolate chip cookies, Christmas bark or candy? Whip out the apron and make some holiday magic!
A Favorite Things Gift Basket
This is commonly considered to be a commercial item but not if you put it together with love items. For example, a love letter, a particular scent sprayed on a favorite book and some homemade candles would make a wonderful basket. Find all the things they love that don’t necessary cost anything and gather them in one fantastic holiday basket.
How about a basket of coupons for your personal attention? One free kiss. One day of no honey-do-this or honey-do-that. One giant back rub that has no timer on it. Dig deep and give them yourself for Christmas!
