Board Game Dress Up
Board games are a favorite pastime for many families. Break away from the norm and try something different. For example, the next time you have a game night of CLUE®, have each person dress up as their character.
Most people treasure photos and love to share them. A photo session with a local photographer makes a great gift that will be cherished for years to come.
Acts of Service
Set up a small candy buffet for your kids, spouse, or friends the next time you host a get-together. Dress up as a classy server (white gloves and all), and serve them at a special time during the evening.
Sometimes nothing says Quality Time like an evening enjoying movies or favorite shows together. Give the gift of a streaming service for the person who likes to relax with you . . . and maybe some snacks too.
Technology has given us wonderful opportunities to give the gift of learning. If you know someone who is interested in a topic, trade, or craft, consider gifting them an online course. There are many online schools out there, such as Masterclass, CreativeLive, and Udemy, that host classes on a wide range of topics. Do a little exploring, and see what courses could be fun to gift.
Often airlines will offer exceptional specials to certain locations this time of year. Why not jump on your favorite airline's website and check their general specials (for example, this page at Southwest)? Choose your departure city, find the most financially reasonable destination, and book a trip! Plan it further by looking into hotel deals and searching for the most interesting restaurants and sights to see!
Acts of Service
Nothing speaks to an Acts of Service person more than a "To-Do" list—here's one you can gift! Encourage your loved one to write down their heart's desires, and then commit to do all you can to make them happen.
Many Smaller Gifts
Instead of giving one big gift on one day, give lots of small (even silly) gifts your special someone can open over several days. This can be a cute, fun way to show extra love to a gifts-loving person.
Words of Affirmation
Celebrate special occasions by putting a special message right in the front yard!
When was the last time you called up some friends and invited them to meet you for therapy? No, not that kind of therapy . . . I’m referring to therapeutic salt caves. Not only will you and your friends enjoy time together, but it could also improve your health. If money is an issue, check your local Groupon for discounts.
