Gifts From The Heart

While you're racing around this holiday season trying to find the right gifts, remember that the ones that have the most value are the ones that come from the heart.

Hanging on my bulletin board in my studio is a magazine clipping from ©Family Circle magazine, circa mid-1990's, that I saved. It has great gift ideas from Meghan (Yudes) Meyers that don't have to break the bank but are sure to be invaluable to your recipients. Some of the ideas are a little dated, but it's fun to taking a little trip to the past, and the sentiment is still the same; you don't have to reak the bank to give wonderful holiday presents. Be creative, put a little love into them, and they are sure to be a hit.

Gifts from the Heart


  • Write a poem for a loved one. Roll it up like a scroll and tie it with a pretty ribbon.
  • Sketch or paint a scene or portrait and frame it in an inexpensive frame.
  • Send a videotape of a family gathering to relatives who couldn't be there.
  • Decorate blank stationery with a woodblock stamp and give the stamp with the gift.
  • Iron a decorative transfer script or design onto a set of pillowcases. Transfers are available at most crafts or fabric stores.
  • Make a gift cookbook by filling a spiral notebook with family recipes and photos.
  • Decorate terra-cotta flowerpots with colored markers and fill them with homemade flower-shaped cookies.
  • Make a tape of someone's favorite music.
  • Have a special photo screened onto a tote bag or laminated onto a mug or plate at a local copy shop.
  • Decorate drinking glasses with dishwasher-safe paints, available at most craft stores.
  • Buy a box of fortune cookies, gently steam them open, insert your own inspirational messages or love notes, gently refold and let cool.
