8 Gifts That Don’t Cost a Cent

The Gift of Listening: But you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

The Gift of Affection: Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back, handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

The Gift of Laughter: Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. These are fun to put inside a card or letter.

The Gift of a Written Note: It can be a simple “thanks for your help” note. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life!

The Gift of a Compliment: A simple and a sincere “you look great in red” or “you did a super job” or “that was a wonderful meal” can make someone’s day.

The Gift of a Kindness: Every day go out of your way to do something kind.

The Gift of Solitude: There are times when we want nothing better to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition: The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone. It’s not really hard to say “hello” or “thank you”.
