"A gift pleases as much for what it is, as for what it represents: you, your time, and your genuine appreciation," writes author Mary Beth Sammons. In Gifts with Heart she presents a wonderful collection of inspirational gift-giving stories as well as concrete ideas, for giving with thought and emotion. There are ideas for parents and grandparents, friends, children, guests, gifts for people who are sick or hurting, and more. Plan a "date" for your parents, write the story of your grandparent's life, create handmade Christmas ornaments depicting times shared with the ones you love, or just simply show up and be there for your family member, friend, or loved one in their time of need. From compiling photo collections to creating "happy" memory boxes to putting together a winter blues "get well kit," there is something here for everyone in your life.
