Gifts that Do Not Cost a Cent

Gifts that Do Not Cost a Cent

The Gift of Listening: But you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

The Gift of Affection: Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and hand-holds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

The Gift of Laughter: Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, ‘I love to laugh with you’.

The Gift of a Written Note: A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.

The Gift of a Compliment: A simple and sincere, ‘You look great in red,’ ‘You did a super job’ or ‘That was a wonderful meal’ can make someone’s day.

The Gift of a Favour: Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

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.

The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition: The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone. It’s not that hard to say ‘hello’ or ‘thank you’.

The Gift of Appreciation: Let someone know that you are grateful and you appreciate what they have done for you.
