Acts of Service
Hire a dog walker for the pet lover in your life to come a few days out of the week. This will not only help out, but also be a kind way of giving back precious time.
Find a local or online trophy shop and create a customized trophy for a friend or relative. Be creative and fun, but most of all make it personal. For example, if your mother prides herself on her Southern Fried Chicken recipe, this would be the perfect trophy.
A getaway to a secluded cabin could be a nice break from the confines of home in 2020. Make your plans and present them with a cabin-related, Christmas ornament.
Get some quality time together by taking your friend or spouse to AIRE baths—a very cool and relaxing spa and/or massage experience you can have together!
