- Make a list of everyone you plan to gift to this Christmas.
- Have an idea of how much you'd like to spend on each person
- Give me a call to see what you can do with Heritage Makers to give a meaningful gift that won't end up at a garage sale 3 years from now.
Here are some ideas for you:
Posters - for as little as $9.95 you can make a beautiful poster (12x18) that highlights your special person or event. Did you celebrate something special this year? I'm sure something memorable happened in you life or the life of someone you love. You can purchase poster frames rather inexpensively and wow....for about $20 you have a gift that is priceless.
Playing Cards -- for $20 you can custom design a full 52 card deck! You can put family pictures on the playing cards so when you play games, you're reminded of those you love. You can make matching games, travel games -- the options are endless.
Storybooks (of course) a dedication book, memory book, family recipes, favorite quotes, testimonies -- you name it, it goes in a custom created book!
Need something small and VERY inexpensive? For just a few dollars you can take a "postcard" style card and share a favorite picture and quote - pop a frame on it and WOW -- so personalized!

This is the table "conversation cards" we used to get the guest talking during dinner. These are made from the deck of Playing Cards. The backs were all the same picture of my parents wedding day. The insides were questions for the guests to talk about. Everything from favorite foods to favorite vacation spots to favorite actors -- here is the sample. The guests LOVED THIS and many of them took the cards home!
I also made 20 different 8.5x11 pages that were on display that had the happenings of 1959, the year they were married. Everything from the Economy and Technology to the Academy Awards. Another hit with the guests. And of course, a Beautiful 16x20 Canvas of the
And of course, A new wedding album with all their photos that I had scanned in. I used a template and just dragged and dropped my photos in, deleted pages I didn't want, changed some text and Voila' it was done! http://www.heritagemakers.com/projectBrowserStandAlone.cfm?projectId=977392&productId=9&projectSponsor=457785 just click this link to view it!
Then we sent each guest off with a Thank You and special message from Mom and Dad-- this is cut from a 12x12 - 4 to a page so the dimensions are roughtly 6x6.
