a photo of the family or anything else that they might enjoy. It

Another idea might be to start a photo album as a gift. You donít
need to do the entire album but a few special pages is enough for
a growing gift. You could place special pictures that you have and
write a special little story about each. You could also write as
an introduction why you think this person is so special to you.
This is a heartfelt gift that costs very little but shows a lot
of love. Each year you can give them additional pages to insert
and it can be an ongoing act of love.
A Collection of Special Recipes
Start a collection of recipes focusing on a special area. It could
be anyone with a special diet such as vegetarian, vegans, low-carb,
etc. Perhaps the person does not know how to cook, so you may want
to include easy, simple to prepare meals. Once you have your recipes
together you can then put them on index cards and use stickers to
make them more appealing. Then purchase a box that you can decorate
and personalize just for them. This is a gift that can be used for
years to come and will be a welcome change from the norm.
