Get creative with your Christmas gifts this year!

Many of us don’t really need more ‘things’. When my dad got sick last year, I made a commitment that from that day on, I would only buy gifts for other people that either created memories or enhanced their wellbeing. For my Dad’s 70th I bought him a voucher to go and do archery and last Christmas I did an art class with my mother and sister in law, it was awesome!!!

You can’t take ‘things’ with you, but you can take memories.  Here are some ideas to spark your imagination, I’d LOVE to hear any others you have?
