2) THE GIFT OF AFFECTION...Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back andhandholds.Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for familyand friends.
3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...Funny pictures. Share articles, funny stories and funnygreetings. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."
4) THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE...It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet.A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, andmay even change a life.
5) THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT...A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a superjob" or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.
