5 Christmas Gifts for Everyone - Perfect for friends, family, coworkers, or anyone!

  1. Christmas Gift Basket

    No matter who you're buying for, there's always a Christmas gift basket that's just right. Whether your recipient loves chocolate, pasta, sports, or movies, you can find specialty baskets tailored to their tastes. There are also gift baskets for kids that feature coloring books, candy and other kid-friendly goodies. Can't find just the right items? Then make your own. Wicker baskets are readily available at any crafting store, and then you can fill it with just the right items.

  2. Personalized Christmas tree ornaments

    Ornaments make great gifts because they're small, inexpensive, great for both kids and adults, and have a useful purpose. These days, there are hundreds of personalized ornaments to choose from, so you pick your gift recipient's favorite activity, sports, or occupation and create a truly unique and personalized gift.

  3. Snowman Soup

    If you're on a budget, Snowman soup can be a cute gift idea for kids or adults. The idea is that a snowman has melted and you've turned him into a hot beverage, but in reality you're just adding a cute poem to a cup of cocoa and some marshmallows to make it more fun. Still, it will put a smile on most people's faces and won't cost you a bundle.

  4. Gift cards

    Yes, gift cards can be impersonal, but they don't have to be. To make them more personal, try getting a gift card from or another site that allows you to upload a personalized photo, or choose a special restaurant or store that you know your gift recipient will like. Gift cards from iTunes and Audible are also great options for anyone with a mobile device. Many sites now offer instant electronic gift cards, so you can do your last-minute shopping truly at the last minute.

  5. Homemade Baked Goods

    Unless you have many friends and family on a diet, any kind of homemade baked goods are wonderful. Even if they are on a diet, there are delicious homemade treats that are healthy! My sister in law bakes homemade pumpkin bread for her four brothers, and it is the hit of Christmas gift exchange. Almost everyone will love receiving Christmas cookies, breads or other treats.

Don't ever doubt the power of the printed word! Books can change people's attitudes, can start a revolution, and can get people elected to office.

If you love to read, share the joy of a wonderful book with someone you love. It's amazing what a difference an inspirational, humorous or uplifting book can make in someone's life.

      If you know the person tastes, a book on their favorite pastimes is a great choice.

      I always think food works great. If in question about diet, a fruit basket can always be fun.

      Since I love to write, I sometimes write a poem especially for someone or a memory essay about some experience that we shared. People seem to really like these as gifts.
