One little boy said that he was giving a gift to his brother in that he would quit picking fights with him. It would show that he really loved him (and this was the younger brother who always pestered the older brother). One little girl wanted to clean up her room which she knew would really please her mom and one wanted to help fold laundry. One little boy was going to wrap up dog treats for his puppy and take him on a walk.
Then we made "present" ornaments to hang on the tree or mantle. The children wrote what the gift was on the back of the cards (with a little help sometimes) and decorated the front with snowflakes and seasonal stickers. What a sweet way of showing real love by giving a gift that someone would really enjoy.
