2. Create a simple yet thoughtful gift by creating a sign/frame to add to your home with the important dates in your relationship -- first date, engagement date, and wedding date.

3. Give someone a heart attack. Not literally -- but through art. Get a box and write the reasons why you love that special person on cut-out hearts. Either send it in the mail or strategically place the hearts around a room or in a car.

New Year, New You -- Get Organized!

1. Ready to clean out your closet? Switch the direction of your hangers in your closet. As soon as you wear a piece of clothing, return it to your closet with the hanger facing the opposite direction. That way by a certain amount of time -- you'll know what you like and what you should probably donate.

2. Here's a new way to hang your jewelry. Use large pebbles and attach double-side (foam or heavy duty) tape to cling to your bedroom wall. That's it. Add your jewelry and you have the best looking wall on the block.

Begin A New Holiday Tradition

1. Start a new tradition with your family. Set up a Christmas Eve box filled with goodies (hot cocoa mix, pajamas, christmas book, etc.) and give it to your kids to open on the night before Christmas.

2. Wrap up small gifts using white paper streamers. Slowly wrap the gift with the streamer and ccontinuethe process. Add more little items as you wrap around each layer. Secure with a sticker and put each "snowball" in a clear bag. A simple idea that adds a creative twist to stocking stuffers.

3. The Minivan Express: It's a different twist to the Polar Express -- a more practical journey. Hand out tickets to the Minivan Express and a bag of popcorn -- and take your kids on a journey to view holiday lights around the town.

Photo Gift Tags

Skip the typical holiday wrapping paper and simply wrap up your next gift with a solid color. To make it "special" -- add the photo of the person you're giving it to! I found this photo online -- although I couldn't track where it was originally posted. It's a great idea!
