Here is a cute idea to do for your spouse or loved one...

Take an empty prescription bottle...soak this in hot water to remove the label...after the label has been removed design your own label with something like "Love-Take Once A Day"...

Then take strips of paper and write down what you are willing to do for your loved ones...example:foot massage...you pick the movie...favorite cookie...favorite book...after each strip is done roll it into a ball and put it in the bottle...

So many fantastic ideas here! I have only just realised Christmas is so close and am beginning to panic a bit as we are only in Cyprus a year so finances are tight...So glad I found you clever people! I especially love the grandparent things, my boys miss them so much it will be lovely to do activities together and chat about how it is ok to miss them ...

Thank you:D

This board has given me so many ideals. With our finances not looking great, home made is the ticket this year.

I've ordered a few Avon demos to give and will regift things I've gotten over the year to others.
