While there are quite a few months until the holidays, it's not too early to start socking away “little gifts.” I like to keep little things on hand for teachers, babysitters, friends, neighbors and others to be sure they get a little treat around the holidays.
One of my favorite ways to do that is with personalized gifts. Here's an example:
I like to take my kids' art and make note cards to give to my mom and sisters. They love them, so I always include them with their holiday gifts. My son drew this detailed underwater scene, and the great colors were perfect for a set of note cards. Ink Garden is running a deal right now where you get 12 Note Cards for FREE with $3.79 shipping. I think that's a great price point for a “little gift.” You can choose one of their cute designs and personalize it with a teacher's or friend's name, or upload your own image (photo or artwork). I chose the blank card so I could fully customize it. Get started at Ink Garden.
