Plants you grow yourself can be an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift. A small colorful plant is probably best and can be placed in a pretty container with a ribbon. Include a note on how to care for the plant. If you don’t have a green thumb, silk flowers would be appropriate and can look almost real.
Calendars can be made from photos taken throughout the year. These are easy and fairly inexpensive to make online. You make it more personal by adding special dates and names such as birthdays and anniversaries. This is a gift that gives all year.
