Ideas for Relational Gifts

I’ve heard quite a few comments about my sermon and relational giving. I thought I’d post some ideas about relational gifts.  I also encourage you to add some too in the comments section below!

Many of these suggestions come from RethinkingChristmas.com

Gift of Time

  • Popcorn, specialty soda and classic DVD for a movie night with a friend
  • Host a sporting event (football game, March Madness) and make homemade pizza
  • Wrap 2 copies of a great book (even used!) and read it with a friend
  • Bring hot cocoa and cookies and plan an evening walk to see holiday lights

Creative Coupons

  • Babysitting for a worn out mom you know
  • Car clean up
  • Yard work for an elderly/ill person
  • Road trip for an  adventure with your child
  • Help with a house project for someone (like a shed, or taking down a tree)
  • Coffee with conversation
  • A day in the city together
  • Weekend away with your spouse

Other ideas

  • A new bat and a trip to the batting cages
  • A day trip with cameras for your photographer friend
  • A DVD of your life for relatives who live away from you
  • Make a “newspaper” at home with your kids and have them illustrate it.
  • Make gifts to share — food, cookies, homemade frames, etc.

Support Charities in Someone’s Honor (especially about causes they care about)
