Christmas Gift Ideas
Creative Christmas Gifts
Christmas is always the time of year we consider to be the best
opportunity to give something special to someone and show how much
we appreciate him or her. The mall is full of wonderful, shiny and
delicious gifts and the Internet offers countless items that we
can send to someone without ever seeing the product in person. But
sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be the perfect idea for one
or two individuals. That’s probably when you need to become
creative with your Christmas gift ideas.
A Decorated Tree
Purchase a small pine
tree. It can be living (usually costs around $6.00 for a small
potted one it a nursery) or an artificial one. Consider who the
gift is intended for when deciding which type of pine to purchase.
Decorate the tree appropriately for the intended recipient. If
there is an individual who loves a certain type of dog, decorate
the tree with that type of dog as the focus. If they don’t have a
particular interest that you feel you can decorate around, hand
make your own ornaments and use them to hang on the tree. Present
this very personal gift to make a special memory for someone.
If you know someone who loves to cook, is starting out on his
or her own or is a newlywed, consider creating a cookbook from
your own personal recipe collection. Over the years, we’ve all had
favorite dishes and desserts that were requested over and over
again. Share your ‘secrets’ with someone special. You might even
want to make a small sampler of appropriate items to give as a
part of this gift. It is truly a personal and touching gift.
Create a scrapbook including photos that will mean something to
your intended recipient. Scrapbooking is quickly becoming a
popular way to arrange one’s photos. A visit to your local craft
store will give you some very simple yet decorative ideas on how
to put even the smallest scrapbook together. Imaging the fun of
sitting down and reliving the memories with a loved one! Another
great way of presenting photos is by creating a custom photo
book from Lulu.
Personal Christmas gifts are becoming more and more popular
each year. The reaction and way these gifts are treasured is a
testament to how much yours will be appreciated.
