Giving of Yourself - A True Gift
Usually when we think about giving, we think of buying gifts for others, and when those dollar signs pop into our heads, we immediately pass up the idea.
I must say that I love receiving gifts, but thoughtful gifts and gifts of encouragement are the ones that mean the most to me, not the expensive gifts.
You can buy affordable gifts for people, you can also make homemade gifts (that have quotes about giving on the gift tags), and homemade cards and truthfully those gifts mean more to your loved ones than the most expensive gifts you could buy. And don't forget to add an inspirational quote or quotes about giving to your cards.
Remember, a gift can come in many forms. You can stop in and visit a friend unexpectedly, or take a meal you made to someone you know who has been sick. Offer to watch someone's children, mow someone's lawn, take a bouquet of freshly picked wildflowers to an elderly neighbor, the possibilities are endless. Simply look around and see the needs of the people around you, and most of all be creative!
Homemade Gift Ideas for Creative GivingGiving homemade cards is one of the easiest and quickest ways to give and show someone that you care. All you will need is some scrapbooking paper, stickers, glue dots, glitter, ribbon, and any other items you would like to add. Be sure to add quotes about giving, or other inspirational quotes for an extra special touch. Other ideas would be to add a special photo to the front, or vintage buttons for an old fashioned look. You can also buy rubber stamps that say "Thinking of You", or other phrases to add to the front of the cards.
An easy yet practical gift is to put together a gift basket. Depending on the person, gift baskets can be made in a variety of themes. The basket pictured is a spa gift basket filled with all kinds of lotions, wash cloths, and soaps. Other ideas might include a movie gift basket complete with a favorite DVD, popcorn, candy and cans of pop. Another idea would be a beach gift basket which might include flip flops, beach towel, sunscreen, sunglasses and the basket itself could be a large beach tote.
Whatever type of gift basket you might decide upon, don't forget to add a homemade note card that contains an inspirational quote or quotes about giving.
Another easy yet practial gift idea would be to make a gift in a jar. These are great gifts for friends or neighbors. Simply include all the dry ingredients for your favorite cookie, brownie, or hot cocoa recipe. Add the ingredients to a jar, such as a Ball canning jar, and layer them so they look decorative. Include the recipe on a homemade gift card so the recipient can add the liquid ingredients and make your wonderful recipe! It is an easy, yet beautiful gift!
"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."
