What a great idea! I need to make my list. I have been picking up things clearances at 60% or more for teachers, colleagues and such. I need to go through and match up gifts to people. I should be done with that type of gift. Now to start that Christmas Account and think about family members.
Might I suggest a pie of the month club? My family thought I was dumb for giving that to my dad (homemade pies, or course.) Now they want one, too.
MM you could do this for anyone on your gift list and I'm thinking I might do it for several. Here are some off the top of my head ideas.
Napkin, potholder or dishcloth of the month club: You could knit, crochet or sew these. It would be fun and easy to make them coordinate with the holiday of the month with printed fabric or the color of the yarn.
Dinner of the month Club: You could make dinner for this person once a month. This would be great for single people or older people on your list that wouldn't necessarily have someone making home cooked meals for them.
Picture of the month club: I'm thinking of doing this for my grandparents this year. They are always saying that they need new pictures of my dd and with the new baby coming it will be the same. This way every month I'll sit the kids down and take a picture of them to mail off. It would be a great way for distant family members to be kept up to date with the goings on of your family.
Chocolate of the month Club: Pretty self explanitory and who doesn't love a little chocolate surprise every now and then.
You could do this with pretty much anything that you are good at.
I made head rest covers for my dad's wheelchair, before he died. . . one for each month, and one for each "special" days like Christmas, his birthday, etc. I gave him the New Year's one for Christmas, with the promise of at least one a month, for a year -- he loved them.
