My mother in law turned 60 this past week. Hooray for her! But what do you get someone who is 60 and do it on a budget? Well thankfully she has been interested in hearing what we have been up to and wanting to try it. She also wanted to start a garden this summer, but with work traveling she was not able to. So that's when we were all like BINGO!
Gifts don't have to be something over the top in extravagance, don't blow your budget just to impress someone. Think out of the box, what can you make or pull together to make something special. Many of times I will find a nice looking box, like a hat box, and fill it with little things that have special meaning. Like a wedding present might
look like a little suitcase box filled with chocolate covered
strawberries, a fancy candle, bottle of wine and two glasses, and
something special to wear. With most items purchased at Ross, you can
make a nice looking box on a small budget with out spending a lot of
money. Don't forget the clearance section! Many people have told me how
much they like the gift...years later. Most of the time it really is the thought that counts!!
