  3. So many wonderful ideas. My favorite is a receiving a card every month.

    I really love all of your ideas and I like the ifea of hand made gifts not store bought. It makes me feel more special that someone took time out of their day to create something just for me. I would love to receive cards every month. That would be a great gift with cookies!! Happy Holidays 🙂

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi Sheri! Thanks for stopping by and sharing! There is something very special about having someone create something just for you! It shows how much they care for you! Happy Holidays to you too!

    I love these ideas. Christmas has become so much about spending money on large gifts for lots of people versus letting them know you care and are there for them. This is a great reminder.
