Gifts of Time

Living on a fixed income?
Is your budget streched to the MAX with no money left for Christmas gifts?

Then why not give the best gift of all -- "your time"!
With most Boomers usually having more time than money, some ideas for giving a gift of your time are:

  • Babysitting
  • Addressing Christmas Cards
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Taking someone to the Doctor
  • Cleaning their home
  • Taking the grand kids for an entire weekend

And truth be told, most Boomers don't need any more clutter around their homes, so if you're trying to find a gift for your parents or older friends - do some of the above.

But if you feel like you just have to buy a gift for a Boomer, then send them some postage stamps! I swear my 84-year-old mom gets more excited about the latest postage stamp than a bouquet of flowers!

And they truly are the perfect gift -- everyone needs them, there are many designs to choose from, but one size fits all and they are easy to send.
