Running low on cash AND time? For all you present
procrastinators (you know who you are), we've compiled our ah-mazing free (ish)
gifts for the most important people on your list. Yep, the best things in life
are definitely free....
For your boyfriend...
Plan an indoor picnic! Head over to your guy’s house with a plaid blanket, a
board game and a basket full of sandwiches, snacks and soda and you’re set for
a rollicking good time.
For your dad...
Whip up a batch of Dad’s fave brownies and dress them up in a glass mason jar
with a ribbon around the lid. Dee-lish!
For your bestie...
Plan a sleepover she’ll totally heart. Borrow her fave movies from the library,
whip up her fave cookies and set aside some time to just plain chill during
vacay. So fun.
For your bro...
Put together an awesome playlist of songs that you think he’ll totally love.
Create a cool song list and make a crafty CD case by folding construction paper
into an envelope.
For your sister...
Treat her to breakfast in bed. Get up earlier than she does and surprise her
with a tray full of her fave b-fast foods. Eggs, pancakes and bacon, anyone?
Add a sweet handmade card and some flowers for a fancy touch.
For your mom...
With everyone’s schedules being oh-so-nutty, it’s hard to spend as much time
with Mom as you used to. Give her a gift that ensures you two spend time
together. Write her a card saying you’d like to spend one Sunday a month doing
something you two love. Maybe it’s baking, crafting, hiking, biking—whatever it
is you have in common, make it more of a ritual.
