Most folks really appreciate a gift that someone took the time to think about and put together. Much more than one just purchased. So heres a few ideas.
1. specialized picture frame.
Take a wood frame(accquired at garage sale etc) peel some bark from a pine tree. Hot glue the bark so that none of the wood is showing. Accent the corner with a little greenery and a small pine comb.
or try lining the fram with seashells,starfish and sand dollars. Both make freat gifts.

2. tea for two

Use a small basket. add a couple of mugs, 4 bags of herb tea. A small container of granulated sugar. Place a couple of magazines or books and garnish with a ribbon. These can be used books! Don't forget to line your baskets with a pretty piece of cloth or tissuse paper.

3. movie night

Take a previously viewed dvd. Old movies work great too!. Put in a basket with 2 cans of soda, 2 bags of microwave popcorn, and a box of jr mints, and rasinettes. It's very well recieved! All these are very well appreciated and won't break the bank. Til next time....Stay Green
