Other Ideas For Christmas

Other Ideas

Any parent would love to receive a family portrait

  i-pod accessories

• Ten Pin Bowling

• Surf lessons or Extreme activities in your area

• Golf or Putt Putt

• • Harbour coffee cruises, river cruises

• family zoo pass

Beauty treatments are a delicious indulgence.

• Driving lessons

• Have a grandparent that doesn’t see their grand kids often? Put a photo on a mug and they can enjoy them and the cup of tea! Have a father who’s just discovered computers? Put a funny photo from your childhood on a mouse pad.

 

If you prefer a more personal touch: handmade chocolates, cake, biscuits or decorations. A selection of handmade cards to use throughout the year will make a lasting impression.

Instead of the gift exchange, start a new tradition with extended family. Combine resources to donate to a charity OR do a draw to buy for one person up to a set amount (eg $100) instead of buying for all. OR just buy for the children…

Create a Gift List and keep it handy. List all the people you have to buy for, as well as their size, likes, dislikes and previous gifts given. Take it with you shopping as a reference. No more doubling up or last minute dash for a forgotten gift!
