We've Thought of Some Ways to Create Inexpensive Gifting!
The following are a few ideas. We're sure You will think of many more!
Gift Idea Theme #1 - Reusable Functional Gift Bags
Start with a Backpack or a Tote
The first step in creating a unique gift basket is to get rid of the basket! It's overdone and there are so many other containers to hold your gift items. We have two perfect containers at the Library - our bright yellow children's backpack and our adult tote, only $10.00 each! Both can be filled with a selection of thoughtful gifts.
How about an adult tote bag filled with snack treats for the holidays? It could include your favorite home-made salsa, chips, some hard salami, a tin of crackers, a favorite cheese spread and a choice bottle of bubbly to celebrate the season.
For the children in your family, pack our bright yellow backpack with some holiday books, a board game, a deck of cards, some game night treats, and a pledge to teach the children how to play the game followed by story-time! What a great gift!
Gift Idea Theme #2 - Cooking at Home
With the holidays just around the corner, and credit card bills piling up, it's time to be creative in finding ways to save during the holidays. Instead of wasting money on those gifts that people never use, why not put some thought into a personalized gift? Create something just for them by combining a Library gift with some ingenuity.
Bake several different cookie recipes from the Friends Favorite Cookbook. Pack the cookies in a holiday tin and package together with the FF Cookbook (On Sale - only $5.00!) in a brightly colored holiday bag. It is a gift that anyone would enjoy!
Gift Idea Theme #3 - Engraved Pavers - A Gift to Last a Lifetime
Celebrate the wonderful people in your life with an engraved paver! It is a unique gift that will last a lifetime. For gift giving, a beautiful certificate is printed. An envelope is included with the certificate.
Gift Idea Theme #4 - Save Money for your Giftee with All Occasion Note Cards
