Holiday Countdown: His and Her Gift Ideas

make and excellent gift.
It can often be a challenge to come up with gift ideas. Here are some Christmas and/or holiday gift ideas for your significant other.  Many of them would work for a  best friend, family member, or acquaintance whose name you drew for a white elephant party.

Coupon book - Coupons are simple to make even if you don't have any fancy graphics programs.  Cut an 8.5x11 piece of nice paper in to 4ths ot 5ths and print or draw your coupons.  Some coupon ideas could be free hug, free kiss, movie or game night, or homemade supper of your choice on me.

Personal Note - hidden notes are always a great surprise to wake up to.

12 Days of Christmas (or insert chosen holiday here) - decide on 12 gifts and give one to your sweety each of the 12 days leading up to the holiday of choice.  Here is website that shows the significance behind the Christian meaning of the song.

Candy or other sweets especially homemade treats always make great gifts for the holiday season.
Chocolate Kisses - These could be used along with the coupon book and each candy could redeem a kiss (or a hug if you give hugs).
You can also use candy instead of packaging peanuts.

Gift baskets are fun and very personal.  You could combine one or several of these ideas with a gift basket.  Gift baskets are great for most friends and family.

Remember mixed tapes?  It wasn't long ago that this was the gift to give your date.  Now it would clearly be a Mixed CD.  You can dig though your music collection and pick songs that had significance behind them.  This is a great gift for girls or guys.

A blanket, movie, and popcorn (or hot chocolate) make a great gift for nearly anyone living through a cold winter (like those here in Larmaie, Wyoming).

One summer when I worked at a church camp, I had a ton of fun creating scavenger hunts for my coworkers (who were friends).  One wanted a car so it ended with a toy car.  A variation on this would be to create a board game and there is a space that results in the gift.

Finally for those of you who are not crafty you can always come in to visit us here at Works of Wyoming.  We are located in suite 271 of the Laramie Plains Civic Center on the corner of 7th and Garfield in Laramie, WY.  Our phone number is 307.742.6574 give us a call or send an email.
