In Expensive Gift Ideas this Holiday


I thought I would post some things on Christmas this month so here goes.



These are some great ideas for friends during the holidays.


  • A Heart Craft: A Friend is someone who listens from the HEART.
  • A Good Book: A friend is a rare book, of which only one copy is made. OR A good friend is like a wonderful book. The inside is even better than the cover!
  • A Measuring Cup filled with Candy: Friendship begins with a cup of kindness.
  • A pair of mittens: Friendship warms the heart.
  • A Stitched Item: Friendships are made one stitch at a time
  • A Quilt: Friendships are like quilts, they never lose their warmth.
  • A Sharpie Marker: Don’t take life too serious - it’s not permanent
  • An Angel Craft: A Friend is a gift Heaven sends.
  • Candle: You are the "LIGHT" in my life. Thanks for being such a terrific friend.
  • Chocolate Candy Bar: Friends and chocolate make life more bearable.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies: In the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips.
  • Chocolate Gold Coins: A friend is a TREASURE you always keep.
  • Dessert: Life is uncertain - eat dessert first!
  • Flowers: If friends were flowers, I'd pick you.
  • Ice Cream: Life is like an ice cream cone - just when you think you’ve got it licked - it drips on you.
  • Jam: Thanks for always being there when I'm in a JAM.
  • Jelly Beans: A Friend is like a bowl of jelly beans, good to the bottom of the bowl
  • Square sticky note pad (if might be fun to stamp a design on the sides of the blocks of note papers) : Just a "NOTE" to let you know how much you mean to me.
Some ideas for your Mailman, UPS Drivers, Policeman..or Fireman...Trash men, Doctors, Preachers and Teachers and even coaches.....these people have helped you in some way so show them you appreciate them this holiday season.

We have a terrific postal carrier. She goes above and beyond the call of duty everyday. My husband and I were just mentioning that we would like to give her a Christmas gift.
