Creating a Gift When You Are Not Creative

CyberParent Staff and Readers

Gifts and the giving of gifts: Most of us like to give gifts that are appreciated and many of us need to save money, particularly at an extensive gift times.

Not everyone is creative, of course. But most of us like to give gifts that are appreciated and many of us need to save money, particularly at an extensive gift time such as Christmas.

Gift Calendar
Collect your family and/or friends birthdays, anniversaries, and other specialdays. Your computer has a program to create a calendar. Print calendars withthose special dates filled-in. You can have this gift calendar bound at the localoffice supply store for a nominal charge. This is a welcome gift and… it is agift that can be repeated next year!!

Who would enjoy this calendar as a gift?

  • Any adult family member needs to remember special days for gifts or cards.
  • Your circle of friends with other friends’ birthdays and anniversaries, even children’s birthdays.
  • Your non-profit or play group will have a record of birthdays and special days from your gift.
  • Employee birthdays at work is a good gift for everyone on your team.
  • Any organization that has deadlines or special days has some person in the organization who has to remember them. And they will remember your gift, too.

Birthday or Holiday Book for a Child’s Gift
CyberParent made this one easy for you. Print out a few appropriate pages here,then paste them in a scrapbook with a few photos and a few blank pages for thegift recipient’s additions. You have the perfect gift for a child. 

Start a Photo Album as a Gift for Anyone You don’t have to do the entire album. Just a few special pages isenough for a growing gift. Give a few more pages next year.  

The Growing Gift
1. Start a plant from one of your own, rooting it far enough ahead of timeto be established by gift time. Put it in an interesting container–maybe a giftfrom a second-hand or thrift store. Type the care instructions to go with itfrom your computer.

2. Buy small bedding plants of flowers, then plant three in a pot in atriangle. Plan ahead to give them time to fill-out and flower. It is a beautifulgift. Again, it can be repeated.

3. Find inexpensive strawberry pots (second-hand stores or close-outs) andfill with strawberry plants or flowering plants. Another beautiful gift.
