A Walk Down Memory Lane

If you want to give somebody in your family a really special Christmas gift, like say your dad, collect as many pictures as you can of your dad and yours. Organize the pictures in a chronological manner from when you were little till you were all grown up, now choose the one's that hold a special meaning for you because you distinctly remember the occasion. Place all the photographs in a scrapbook along with funny yet sensitive captions. Add a beautifully written letter to daddy telling him how much you care about him and wish him a merry Christmas. A real tearjerker this one is, a personalized Christmas gift for sure.

Remember at the end of the day, it's not the price tag that matters but the original Christmas spirit of loving and sharing. After all Jesus accepted flowers from little boys and girls with the same dignity as the Jewels from the wise men. Christmas is a time for love and giving and use it to tell the people you love, how you feel in your own unique way.
