Gifts for men


Weather it’s a birthday gift or an anniversary gift you need to think about what the person  would like. I know it sounds obvious but sometimes you can get distracted by those one time offers on line. To keep focused you can make a list of all the sports or hobbies they have. He may have mentioned he’d like to try a new sport so you can add that to your list. Keep the list to hand so you can use it in the online search. If that’s not appropriate then he may like a personalized gift and there are lots of options for them.
If it’s a gift for a boyfriend and you haven’t known him long why not enlist the help of his friends. Gifts for dad can be just as difficult as they all seem to have everything! Mum can definitely help here. She will know what he’s been talking about wanting or doing so get her input Family is always close to most parents heart so you could give a photo album or memory book. You can leave it blank, compile a memory book for them or even start them off with a few photos yourself.
Whoever you are buying it for, you need to give yourself time. It’s surprising to us how many people put it off and leave it to the last minute. It makes it far less stressful if you just start in time. If you keep a list of ideas you can add to it when you think of something. This way you will always have ideas for the future.

Christmas cheer!

Christmas should be a time of joy right? Oh boy whoever said that didn’t have to organise food, presents, activities for the kids.

Present can be a really trail! You don’t want to waste money buying gifts that will end up as unwanted gifts. Parents and Grandparents can be a really challenge as they have everything they need. There are varies ideas you can use.
Really think about what they like hobbies, travel, eating out. Time with their children and grandchildren must be on the top of their list,
so you could all go out together for a meal. You can always get creative about what you give them on Christmas day to indicate your all going out for a meal over Christmas. Maybe a card with a menu from their favourite restaurant I’m sure you could think of something appropriate.
Think about their hobbies or something you know they have always wanted to do.

What photos would you share your grandchildren?

It’s sad but one day those we love will be no longer with us.  What would you like your grand or great grandchildren to know about your parents or partner? Photos help to build up an image of the person. We all have different characteristics but which ones come to mind when you think about your parents or grandparents? Think about the photos you have which epitomise the person you want to remember. The photos of my parents speak volumes and it doesn’t need any explanation. Unfortunately they are no longer with us but we can help her great grandchildren to visualize what they were like even though they have never met them.  What photos would you like to pass on?

  • The other sad fact is lots of people don’t think about this. They have a jumbled collection of photos languishing on the PC or on their phone. Take some time to delete those you don’t want and keep a copy of just the ones that are meaningful to you. You could make a family album which could be a family heirloom for your children. Most people are more reluctant to dispose of albums than photos, especially if there are lots of photos on a phone or PC. Make it easy by only keeping those you really want.

Now is the time to start thinking about the photos you take in the future. Don’t just snap away but stop to ask yourself what photos will remind you of this moment in time? Less is always best.

Gifts For Women

gift-3134511_1920Many women say they’re easy to buy gifts for but are they? We may think so but do our friends and family feel the same way?  All of us can assume we are easy to find a present for.

Here are some suggestions for all of you who struggle to think of something.

Try to think of something they wouldn’t normally buy themselves. Usually if they have a family, they probably never buy that special treat as they feel guilty spending the money.

If it’s your boyfriend or partner you can always listen out for comments about this or that they would like. You could start a list well before the time so you have several choices and also this can help other family members who can’t think of anything. We women can help by mentioning a few items we would like before our special occasion.

If it’s for a friend or family member you don’t see very often, always check that a gift you’ve bought before is till OK. I remember one Easter buying the usual Easter egg for a friend’s child. When I went round before Easter with the egg, the child had been diagnosed diabetic! The moral of this is never assume, always check. Yes I know!  It will take more time to ring or text a friend or partner to ask them but it could save an embarrassing moment!

The gift doesn’t have to be expensive, maybe a day out without the family with a lunch at her favourite cafe You could surprise her by arranging a baby sitter and splashing out on tickets to a show or concert   Buy a memory book and get all friends and family to supply photos. You can even get friends and family to add their own photos to a few pages. “More hands make light work”. They will appreciate the time you took to arrange any gift which needs prior preparation.

Remember me

birthdays-1 (3)
Flipping through my husband’s family photos I wished someone had made an album. That way I would have known who all these people were and where the photos were taken. Such a shame I thought but it did make me wonder what will happen now with few printed photos? Now computer hard discs are full of photos or they are posted on Facebook. What happens to the photos on their hard drive or Facebook account once the people pass away?
Would family want to sieve through hundreds of photos on a hard drive?. Facebook could be more of a challenge especially if you had conflicting opinions about keeping a page up or not.
Will family historians of the future, find only documentation of their ancestors as few photographs survive? I hope not as to see photos of your ancestors gives you a peak into the past and can spark interest to know more. I think the family history is enhanced with photos of the people on the family tree and it will be a sad if these are not available
