Can you list the gifts you gave or received two years ago? How about last year? It's not so easy to do is it?
We go in search of the perfect gifts each holiday season. Maybe expensive gifts
are not the ones that have the most significance. Maybe something simple or
handmade will make a greater impact upon the recipient. Quite often a child
will have more fun with the box and packaging peanuts his gift came in than he
will have with the electronic toy that's inside.
Here are some gift suggestions for young children:
* Buy a book and record yourself reading it. Wrap up the book with the recording
for a special, one of a kind gift.
* Create a coupon for a special time for just you and the child. Choose an
activity they would enjoy doing and include an object that symbolizes the time. Could be a puzzle, the ingredients to make cookies, a new board game.
* Make home play-dough (recipe) and include cookie cutters, plastic knives,
craft sticks and a six inch length of a 1 inch diameter dowel for a rolling
pin. Put the kit inside a cake pan with a lid.
gifts can create the fondest of memories.
