It's Your Turn To Be Santa!

Dec 26, 2007
Do you still remember the time when you used to wake up every Christmas morning and rush to the Christmas tree to open your presents? All along, you thought Santa existed and that he is the one putting those boxes wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper under the tree. That would explain why you never sleep on Christmas Eve just to catch Santa in the act of placing the gifts or even see how Santa could possibly fit and climb down the chimney. How did you react when you found out that your parents were actually the ones responsible for your Christmas presents?

The Holiday season is a great time to say "Thank you" to your parents who have done lots to give you everything and what better way than to give them something just to show some love and gratitude. For some useful and memorable gift ideas just refer to the list down below.

A cheap but lovely gift is to give them a mug with your family portrait on it. They can use it during this time of year to put some hot chocolate in it or even eggnogs. Personalized mugs are lovelier if you put simple messages for your parents on it. You can give Dad one that comes in a masculine color and Mom in a feminine color.

If you are fond of knitting, then give them matching sweaters that you knitted yourself. It would be more personal and special that way. They would think that you actually took a lot of effort. You can also knit one for yourself. You can wear it whenever you go to your parent's house.

Arts and craft are meant for the imaginative people. But hey, if you love someone, creative juices will naturally flow. So grab some materials and give your parents a scrapbook. That scrapbook will showcase how much you've grown more mature and wiser over the years with your parents help and guidance, of course. It won't cost you a lot. Be resourceful and a couple of bucks will go a long way. If you can shell out more money, you can go for photo albums instead.

If your parents have their own respective hobbies, or better yet, if you and your parents usually do something together, then you are surely lucky! It is a whole lot easier because it is something that all of you have in common. You will enjoy preparing for this gift since it is a family hobby - be it late night scrabble sessions or family vacations.

Lastly, if your parents are not very inclined to new technology, you might as well think of giving them a personal computer this Christmas. Make sure that it has a webcam. This will greatly help you keep in touch with each other. With the high-technology that we have today, distance is no longer an excuse. So take advantage of it. By the way, this is only a very good gift idea if you have lots of cash. And don't forget to teach them how to use it.
