The holidays are right around the corner, and Optimist is here to help you with all your gift giving needs!

Homemade gifts:

  • coupon book– Almost everyone in your life would love a coupon for a service you can give them. For example, you could give a coupon to your parents for one home cooked dinner.
  • cookie recipe jar– Who wouldn’t love freshly baked cookies? This idea lets someone bake their own cookies whenever they want.
  • picture frame– Give the gift of a memory!

Gifts under $10:

  • socks– Last year, everyone on Optimist asked for socks for our gift exchange. Everyone always wants socks.
  • mug– Put some hot chocolate mix and marshmallows in it!
  • good coffee/tea- Check out Hopscotch for some high quality coffee.

Gifts under $25:

  • chocolate– Go local and give Blu Boy chocolates!
  • gloves– Everyone needs to stay warm in the winter.
  • lotion set– Optimist especially likes this scent- it smells just like winter!
