Perfect Gift
What is the Perfect Christmas Gift?

In the busy lives of today's families, the hunt for the perfect gift adds extra stress to overstretched schedules. Time to shop is hard enough to find the right gift often proves even more elusive.

There is a simple answer. An expensive toy, computer game, Nintendo Wii or the latest movie release, are all within easy purchase but often what we really need is each other's time. Quality time, not more "stuff", could be the answer you are looking for.

Gift Voucher
Quality time, not more "stuff", could be the answer you are looking for
Print out a voucher on your computer for a day or even a few hours together with your child or loved one. You could offer: "Go kite flying with Dad", "Movies with Mum" (back to back Harry Potter or Princess Diaries 1 & 2, Tangled or Secretariat). Promise a "Family Beach Day", when your phone is left in the car instead of glued to your ear. Bake a recipe for biscuits your Granny used to make on a "Cook Up Some Fun" voucher. "Picnic in the Park" just needs a handball, frisbee, rug and some treats. A bike ride, the drive in, ten pin bowling, a hike in a national park or cheering on your local team at the footy/ rugby/basketball the choice is endless.
Gift Voucher 2
Have fun together

Try something new like a Horseback Adventure, a Surf lesson, High Ropes Challenge or Canoeing, It could also be tickets to a Christmas Show or a meal out together but the point is that it doesn't need to be an expensive treat it's your time that is the most valuable gift.

You can't buy memories - so go and make some.
