Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Well I’m back with Day 6 of 12 Christmas Ideas for Cheap! This one is definitely a little more innovative. So, many of might have a lot of talent but limited funds…so I’m encouraging everyone to think outside the box this year.

How many of us have a unique or special gift that we can share with those we love?…Why not offer your services as a special gift. Obviously this won’t be for everyone on your list, or may it can, who knows. Here’s a few ideas or examples that were roaming through my mind.

Carpentry skills: Build someone a custom mantle, bookcase or shelf. They can think of you all year-long.

Artist: Make a custom piece of art for someone. This will be much more memorable.

Photography: Offer a free personal or family shoot what a personal touch and it’s free built in advertising when you do a great job.

Hair Stylist, Esthetician, or Nail Tech: Offer one of these services and come to their home it’s a special treat on you!

A mechanic:  a free oil change or tune up.

An electrician: offer to install that new chandelier they have been wanting to put up but don’t know how.

This is a great way to “shop” for family and friends when you know someone has a need for something and they too are limited on funds, time or know how. It’s really a great way to spread the holiday cheer and provide a gift to them that they actually need and want.

Maybe you like to scrapbook: offer to do their wedding album they never gotten around to.

Whatever it is, we all have something to offer. Maye it’s offering to shovel for the month of December or inviting a family over for a home cooked meal. Just use a little creativity and a lot of love.

Than when you decided what it is you want to do or offer, just make a coupon on your computer or a handwrite little card that states what your gift to them is and wrap it up in a small pretty box.

So, there you have it. Use your gifts and talents and share it with those you love this year. I know I would be appreciative if anyone offered something FREE to me this year! Wouldn’t you?

Well, happy Tuesday!
