A truly personal gift that won’t break, go obsolete, or be forgotten
[Des Moines, IA] --The iPhone you gave last year is already outdated. The waffle iron is on the highest shelf, seldom used. The HD TV seems too small now. And your parents don’t want to accumulate any more “things.” Choosing the right gift may seem difficult, but it’s easier than you think, says Paula Stahel, president of the Association of Personal Historians.
“Celebrating a holiday in a down economy gives us a chance to reexamine what matters most and to choose gifts that reflect our deepest values,” says Borzo. “These are the gifts that will be treasured long after the holiday is past.”
The Association of Personal Historians (APH) has put together a list of gift ideas with lasting value for all budgets and circumstances. These gifts are sure to be loved, cherished, and even passed on to future generations.
