Give the Gift of Your Time and Service
Make a list of a few important people in your life, and instead of buying them a gift, ask each of them if you can help with a project they've been putting off. Schedule a time to visit their house, or support them specifically in getting that task or project accomplished.
Remember what most people want, more than anything else, is to know that they are loved, valued and appreciated. Appreciation truly is the best gift we can give to the people in our lives—for the holidays and at any time of the year.
