While you can send Hallmark’s ecards to let the people in your life know with words how you feel about them. Handing over a present that shows you care is the best way to go. There is just something so warm and fuzzy about receiving a present that has meaning and a personal touch, maybe not to an eight-year-old, but to everyone else, yeah. It says your relationship is worth their time, effort, thought, consideration and love, instead of just a quick stop at the bargain basket.
If you have ever seen a child given a present, you will know that their favorite bit is tearing off the wrapping paper, and this doesn’t change. There is just something about the mystery and the excitement and the intrigue that makes the whole experience that much more Eeeeeek! So why not sure you care about this side of it all by creating an experience for them. Set up a scavenger hunt so that they have to find and decipher clues in order to find their present. Or hide a code in their favorite book, something they have to crack in order to reveal the location. Or better yet, hide their gift inside a cuddly toy so they have to carefully remove it, or a pinata. The choices are immeasurable.
