1. Baked goods: You can never have enough dessert, right? But instead of making everything from scratch, pick something easy. Get a roll of pre-made peanut butter cookie dough and a package of Hershey’s Kisses. When the cookies are out of the oven and moved to the cooling rack, press the Kisses in the center of each cookie. Let them cool for a few hours then deliver them on a paper plate.
2. Christmas ornaments: Save those toilet paper tubes and let the kids make ornaments. Glue, glitter, markers, construction paper, and string and let them have at it.
3. Books: Let the kids choose a few of their favorite books and order them online. It’s easy and they get to give something that means a lot to them. A fun Christmas book is Dreaming of a Pink Christmas for another little girlfriend.
4. Duct Tape Crafts: These days there are so many patterns when it comes to Duct Tape. Buy a few rolls and give the kids a few ideas then let them design their gifts. They can make wallets, jewelry, hats. ties, games, so many things!
5. Family “Photos”: One year as I was visiting my family my little niece drew a picture of me and her together. Years later I still have it hanging in my bedroom. Give the kids some art paper and sharpened pencils and let them draw pictures of things that are special between them and the person they are giving it to.
