Last Minute Christmas Gifts
Last Minute Christmas Gifts
By Debra Vaughn
Do you have a hard to shop for loved one that you consistently put off shopping for during the holidays until the last minute? Don’t feel bad we all do. Mine is my husband. There is always something that stands in my way when it comes to holiday shopping for him. Either I have no clue what to get him or what he wants is way beyond our financial reach. If this sounds familiar, try putting some of your heart and imagination into your gifts for those folks with these ideas. They will appreciate the time and thought that you put into their gift, so will your bank account!
This one is good for those who love to scrapbook or children of any age to give to Moms and Dads. This is the very simplest of directions. Feel free to alter, decorate or anything else that will make your loved one’s life story unique. Pick out a few pictures of your loved one starting with a baby picture, into childhood and the teen years until you reach present day photos. Next, either use specialty papers that are sold at craft stores, or construction paper as your pages. Count out one piece of paper per picture and punch three holes through the paper so that they will fit nicely into a notebook. Then, using acid free tape or making a home made paper ‘frame’ secure one picture to each page. Under each picture write a caption to that picture that will take your loved one back in time through memories. Finally, place the pages in the notebook or, if an empty notebook is not handy, get one piece of poster board, cut it in have and trim to make the front and back of your book. Be sure to punch 3 holes in the poster board. Decorate your book cover and end, so that it is pleasant to the eye of the loved one who is receiving it. If you are using poster board for the book cover, tie ribbon through each of the holes and score the straight line in the board for easy opening.
This one is better for children to give to Mom or Dad. It is simple. Draw the best picture you can and put it in a frame. Parent of young children will love it no matter what the picture looks like, while for adults giving to their parents should not draw stick people, that is unless the receiving parent likes stick people. One possible variation to this is towrite and frame a poem that is printed out on nice paper.
Cook a Meal
For the overworked chef in the house during the holidays, try giving a ‘coupon book’ full of coupons valid for one homemade meal, prepared by you! No, holiday left-overs do not count, but hamburger helper does! (Hint to my husband, Jamie) Variations of this idea are infinite. Use your imagination and personalize the coupons to your loved ones needs and wants.
There are so many gifts that you can give if you use your unique knowledge of your loved ones. Let your imagination run free and the person who receives your gift is sure to love it.
