Creative Christmas Gift for Under $1!
From A Reader:
Although I have read many times the valuable information in your books and emails, I have never shared my own personal insights. May I please add something that may be of interest to your readers as well as to your own precious home?
This always presents well as a warm and meaningful Christmas gift to give to neighbors, teachers, friends, or anyone that you want to remember in a thoughtful way.
Taper candles in a pair (found this time of year for 10/$1 at most drugstores and discount stores) wrapped in a ribbon with the message on the tag reading, "When Jesus was born, He became ‘the light of the world’ John 8:12"
This presents itself beautifully with the true meaning of Christmas shared to others. The candles are a welcome addition to any Christmas table or hearth.
For a minimal cost of candles, a remnant of ribbon and a handwritten note, the gift is and always has been WONDERFULLY received by all.
I thought of your readers when I was preparing mine for this year to share as my family’s gifts to others.
Of course, tapers are not the only candle that can be included in such a gift. Any candle found throughout the year at an inexpensive cost will serve the purpose well. I found a snowman candle last Easter at a discounted price that will wear this message proudly and be given to my child’s first grade teacher this year. Any candle will do, although I usually rely on taper candles because I can always guarantee to find them discounted at this time of year.
Please feel free to share this idea with your readers if you feel it is of interest to others. A gift under .50 cents may be worthy of sharing.
God Bless and Merry Christmas,
El Dorado Hills, CA
