I think when it comes to heartfelt gift ideas that thought is way more important than cost.
My kids may not agree when they want the latest technology but on the whole I do know I am right ! Experiences, home made items and thoughtful gestures rule when it comes to the perfect gift. here are my top 5 perfect gift ideas.
- Home made food, jams, cakes, bread, sweets and shortbread are all lovely treats. You know people have put time and thought into creating for you. Even a home made meal when you have a new baby or are feeling run down is a lovely gesture and really can convey love. My friends did this for me after I had been ill and it really was so helpful and so considerate I hugely appreciated it.
- Home made cards are just the best particularly when made be children..they really are something special and are a gift in themselves.
- Home made gifts such as bath bombs and bath salts, face masks and pot pourri are also a delight.. Recipients know they are filled with natural goodness rather than lots of nasties and that they took your time and thoughts.
- I think experiences also make lovely gifts, so how about a pair of tickets to the cinema. a meal voucher, a hot air balloon ride or if you are on budget how about a voucher promising your free baby sitting services? Gosh I would love that gift – wouldn’t you?
- Flowers – ah my favourite gift. A bouquet of flowers just makes me so happy. I don’t even care what kind they are, from pure white lilies to a mixed bunch of the most colourful spring flowers I truly love them all. I just love the fragrance, the beauty and the naturalness of flowers, they make such a wonderful present.The simplest most heartfelt gifts are always the very best.
