Is there a special woman in your life that you want to give a gift to this Christmas? Christmas shopping for women isn’t always easy, even for other women. I know that I constantly struggle with what to get my neighbor and boyfriend’s mother, each Christmas. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for men to pick out the perfect Christmas gift for the special women in their life. Whether you are a man or woman these ten Christmas gift ideas should help you out. Best of all, they’re all under $10.
A family vacation is a perfect opportunity to create a trip scrapbook that will be a lasting souvenir of family adventures. Collect postcards, brochures and menus from restaurants and tourist attractions. Encourage your child to write descriptions of the places you visited and tell stories about your family’s escapades. Or suggest a scrapbook on your child’s favorite sports team or a chronicle of his year in school. The scrapbook might contain photos with captions, newspaper clippings or school mementos.
The first gift is very simple but will probably bring the best positive reaction of all the listed gifts. It is a poem. The poem can be written by you or you can use romantic lyrics from a favorite song that you know your valentine will love. Presentation of the poem is the key to this gift. Type the poem out in your word processing program. Choose an elegant font to use. For an added touch you can add the date you plan on presenting the gift at the end of the poem. Print the poem out on fancy parchment. You can either frame the poem or just roll it up and fasten it with a red satin ribbon.
Though this may sound trivial for some people it is an issue. One person may go out and buy a lavish gift while another may give a gift from the dollar store or a used magazine like I got. Hey don’t get me wrong; if that person had given me a knick-knack or something from their home I would have loved it. I just did not appreciate a used magazine with dog-ears, and a page that was torn inside! To me that used magazine in such poor condition was no different than giving someone a half used candle.
However, voters sometimes also get it wrong as well. Clay Aiken was clearly a better overall singer than Rueben Studdard, although I admit that I also loved the velvet mini sheepadoodle puppies. Let’s not even talk about Taylor Hicks.
Another unique gift idea for baby’s first Hanukkah is a Personalized “Baby’s First Hannukah” Bib. These can be found in many locations, online and offline.
People can feel obliged to participate just because they don’t want to be the only person who decides against the Christmas gift exchange for whatever reason.
