8 Gifts That Don’t Cost a Thing

As we approach the Winter holiday gift giving season we thought we would share somethings that you can give that don’t cause a penny but make the receiver feel good.

1. The Gift of Listening

But you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

2. The Gift of Affection

Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back, and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you  have for family and friends.

3. The Gift of Laughter

Clip cartoons. Share great articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you…”

4. The Gift of a Written Note

It can be a simple “I love you” or “Thanks for the help” note, or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime and may even change a life.

5. The Gift of a Compliment

A simple and sincere, “You look great in red,” You did a superb job,” or “That was a wonderful meal” can make someone’s day.

6. The Gift of a Favor

Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

7. The Gift of Solitude

There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

8. The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition

The easiest way to feel good is to make others feel good.
