Happy Holidays 2012!

Happy Holidays 2012!

Happy Holidays All!

The holiday season is a great time to honor caregivers who give so much of their energy and time to loved ones who are unable to care for themselves throughout the year. As a part of the Digital Sisterhood Network’s participation in the AARP Blogger Kitchen Cabinet #CareSupport Campaign, I have included a list of holiday gift suggestions for women caregivers. Enjoy!

Gift Suggestions for Women Caregivers:

1) Call or visit her and just listen to what she says. Listening is a true gift.

2) Volunteer to do something that can help her life run smoothly during the holiday season.

3) Cook her a healthy meal and sit and eat with her.

4) Make a collage card that expresses positive thoughts and phrases that describe her personality.

5) Take a digital photo that reflects a peaceful and calming experience. Print and frame it as a gift (CVS, Duane Reed, JC Penney, Kmart, Kohls, Walgreens, or Target have great frames).

6) Create a tea sanctuary in her home that allows her to sip tea and chill out!

8) Write a thank you letter or poem on a peaceful and calming piece of stationary or a lovely card.

9) Purchase a gift card for coffee, tea, and a snack; a journal; and/or a magazine she would like to read. Help her schedule some “me” time so she can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while writing in her journal or reading a magazine.
