Christmas Gift Ideas For Families Who Live In Distant Places
- 14 November 2015
Last Christmas, we were live at the same city with my families. We were so close, every Christmas eve we had family reunion. Family reunion was about time to giving. Hugs, food, and presents! But this year Christmas will be different for us.
We are living in a distant place from our family. Different island, different province. We should traveling two days to reach our home town. Not only about the distance, it’s also about the money we should spent to buy tickets, pay hotels, and buy food during our traveling back home. But I am pretty sure that my nephews waiting for Christmas present from me. They are so cute, I love them! There’s no excuse to not delivering Christmas present for them.
I have two problems here. I live in a remote area where there is no shopping mall to buy some present, and I live in a remote area, that’s mean I have to send the present to a long distance place, with high cost shipping fee! But wait, I’m a smart woman, I know what to do to live in frugal living. Considering those problem, I decide to:
1. Buy Christmas gifts from online store near my family’s home.
Or, I can search for online store that offering free shipping. I will give my nephew’s address as shipping address, by this way the online store will send my gift directly to my nephew’s house. I also can ask the online store to wrap my gift with wrapping paper!
2. Or send digital products as Christmas gifts.
Ebooks, shopping voucher, hotel or restaurant voucher, online games membership, and other membership of particular websites are examples of digital products that can be given as Christmas gift. I can choose one that is my nephew’s desire, and send it digitally.
Here are some Christmas gift ideas that can be delivered to families in a distance place:
