Sometimes thinking of gifts for friends or even family can be quite challenging. So after careful thought and research, we wanted to share some of the best ideas we have found for your last minute holiday gifts..
The Gift Card
Gift cards may not be the greatest gift of all time. But when you question exactly what a person wants, it’s a great way to get “close” to the perfect gift. Let them do the choosing and you both win.
Now this gift should not be processed food, but rather food from the heart! If you bake or cook, make some home made cookies, a fantastic lasagna or decorated candy. If you don’t cook, specialty spices or for the man on the grill, an assorted mix of rubs or BBQ sauces.
This gift is a personal favorite and always shows the person how much you care. Make sure you you offer the chore that the person dislikes the most, such as taking out the trash, windows, car wash, etc.. I really like this gift for kids to give their parents. Husbands, sit down with your kids and help make one for mom. Another personal coupon could be for a 15 minute foot massage, head massage, etc…you get the idea. Be creative and make sure it’s something the recipient would really appreciate!
these gifts cost nothing and can last into the months ahead….
