GIVE SHARED TIME
What creates more shared memories than doing something together? You probably won’t remember jeans or jewelry for the rest of your life. You might get bored with them after a few years. Even an elegant and modern technological device that makes you super happy will eventually be discarded. However, a shared experience remains in your mind and heart forever. This is an especially surprising gift for someone you don’t see as much as you would like.
Some of our favorite ideas include creating a cooking class to share a recipe that you learned on your last trip abroad, a picnic, or going to the theater. The amount of money spent is not important here. What matters is spending time together. Let your imagination fly.
SEND A THANK YOU LETTER
Send letters to all who have made your year more beautiful or have somehow made you happy or inspired you. Share why you appreciate the relationship, what special memories you associate with them and how many times you have felt grateful for their love and support. The reactions are always the same i.e. everyone is happy and appreciates these honest words.
But these kinds of thank you letters are not just for Christmas. They can be written for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, etc.
MAKE A PHOTO ALBUM
Perhaps the idea of reading a letter of gratitude reminded you of special moments. Such as a trip with someone special, a wedding or a birthday party or any celebration. Why not use this experience and make a photo album? It will be fun to create it and strengthen your sense of connection with the person, helping you to relive beautiful moments together.
A SMALL TREE
This special gift not only means something good for the planet, but it is also something that will keep you and the person connected forever, which makes it an everlasting gift.

Iron the fabric to fix the paint well.

6. Wooden word as a sign of optimists
With this gift, you cannot fail. A word of wood looks incredibly beautiful on a shelf or a table. Something as simple as a smile will serve the purpose. Draw the word on the wood. Cut the shape of the word with a marquetry saw or a fretsaw. Sand the edges to make it smooth. Paint the wood with chalk paint and you can get an aged effect with sandpaper when the paint dries. Apply decorative wax to the word to protect it.
