Take a new approach to gift-giving this season

 

The holiday season traditionally includes giving and receiving gifts. But you don’t have to spend a lot of money to show how much you care. Here are some creative ideas for low-cost gifts you can make yourself:


• Recipe book. Collect some of your favorite family recipes. Put them together in a small book that highlights your family tree.

 

• Photos. One way to make a special photograph even more special: Carefully cut a picture into four equal squares, then paste them onto four sheets of canvas or heavy paper. It creates a nifty effect for a four-piece picture that can hang on any wall.

 

• Personal gift cards. Make your own “gift certificates” that the recipient can redeem for personal (or romantic!) purposes: a day free of chores, a back or foot massage, or something similar.

 

• Scrapbooks. Another use for photos: Create your own scrapbook around a family theme, a special place, a variety of activities, or anything else that has significance for your recipient.

 

• Calendars. Create a calendar using photos of family members—many photographic websites and print shops can help you do this. Or take a standard calendar and highlight special days throughout the year: birthdays, anniversaries, important events, etc.

 

• Music. Make a playlist of the person’s favorite songs. Or have a child sing his or her parents’ favorite song and record it.
