Make a Gift From the Heart
Instead of running all over town in search of that "perfect something," make someone something that is sure to please: a gift from the heart.

  • Wrap chocolate bars with holiday greetings like, "May your season be sweet" or "Merry Christmas from our home to yours." If the chocolate bar has nuts in it, you can write, "We're nuts about you! Merry Christmas!"
  • Assemble a scrapbook, and glue in your favorite family recipes and photos of past holidays. Decorate it with colored paper and ribbon. Give one to each family member…they will all cherish them.
  • Create a festive wine label. Print out a picture of you and your family (the size of a wine label) and glue it on top of the existing one. On red colored paper write, "Cheers to you this holiday Season" and attach it to the bottle with a piece of silver tinsel.
  • Make an "I love you because…" box, and fill it with notes cut in the shape of stars from shiny gold and silver paper, each bearing handwritten messages of reasons why you love this special person.
