Ask Aunt Laura – Creative and thoughtful gift giving ideas


Think outside the box.

Get creative.

Impress with an extra special gift that you or the kids have made.

How about gifting an experience along with the standard present of shirts and socks?

And what should you give those who provide service all year long —hairdresser, trash collector, mail carrier, bus driver, etc?

I have lots of ideas to share that will hopefully spark even more ideas, no matter what the occasion!

Could you please boost the volume a bit. I have my control all the way up but still can barely hear Laura.
Thanks for your consideration.
