We are living in times of war, hard times. Some people are away from their families, in the Military or working far away from their hometown. This time of the year, the Holidays, are especially difficult for these people who can’t spend the Christmas with their loved ones.
But if we have a relative who is away during Christmas, we can still send him or her some gifts that help them to feel closer, special presents that will make shorter the distance that separate them from their families in these days. Being my husband in the Military, I have plenty of experience spending Christmas separated, and I know something about looking for the Christmas gifts that help bringing the family together. Here they go some examples of Christmas gifts for those who are away;
-Picture in a pillow case: I always sent my husband a picture of us printed in a pillow case, so he can sleep with us every night. He really loves it. You can go to CozyMyPhoto.com, and place your pictures in pillows and other items that your away relative may use every day, as coffee mugs, key chains, even toothbrushes. T-Shirts or pajamas with family pictures are also very good. It is a really cute Christmas gift.
-A digital frame for pictures: It is a bestseller between Military people, because these photo frames can storage a lot of pictures, and the slide shows make them almost alive.
-If your children play sports, keep one ball of the sport they play, as a soccer ball, baseball, football or even a basketball, and go again to CozyMyPhoto.com, and attach a picture of your kid playing a game, and make him or her sign it. That is a memory forever, an unexpected Christmas gifts that will make your far away relative cry on emotion.
-Make your children paint some pictures, do some children art, make them sign it, frame it and send it. It is very beautiful to receive something that is made by the person you love and miss so much. Any kind of art will be appreciated. If you want, you can even take it to laminate it, to make the art look more professional.
-The same you can make with a family picture, you can laminate it, and frame it. Some photographers can work in your family pictures and make them more artistic, playing with colors or textures. Do the same with a video movie you can make as a journal of the family activities, you can record it and send it to retouch and make it look professional.
The best Christmas present for a person that is away from his or her family is to come back home. It that is not possible, try to send them a piece of home and family.
