Welcome to the festive season of joy and Christmas lights. Another year has passed by and the magic of giving, loving and being together is here again. Christmas is a time for being kinder and supportive, letting our hearts dare to dream and believe in the magic of the Christmas spirit. A season that is all about being a better version of yourself, believing in a brighter tomorrow and experiencing moments filled with festivity and happiness. 

Life has changed over the past two years and we are now living in such unprecedented times, which we call all agree sharing and caring has been made more relevant than ever before. Giving is something that does not necessarily have to be related to giving or receiving material possessions, sometimes the real mystery and charm is hidden in the small details of giving from the heart. To help inspire you, here is a list of some great ideas for Christmas gifts that will cost you nothing: 

1. Listen and support a loved one

Sometimes to be heard and understood is the most precious gift of caring and sharing. When that person only wishes to share their story with you, express their desires, dreams or sorrow, you being there for them, fully present and ready to listen makes a wonderful gift. We all need a sparkling moment or two in our lives from time to time. To lift each other up by showing support and encouragement when it’s dark, is a gift this is one of a kind. 

2. Raise your hand to help

Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help or even know who to ask, so letting someone know you are there can mean a lot. It lets the other person know how important they are to you and that you truly care about them.

3. Writing something meaningful

It could be a letter, poem or just simply expressing your feelings on a piece of paper. Some people are gifted with the ability to create magic with words, so why not use this gift and share it with others? Back in the good old days we wrote love letters and posted homemade Christmas cards, who said that wonderful tradition has to stop. Writing can create a genuine opportunity to connect with one another so don’t hesitate to write a row or few to someone! 

4. Donating to a charity

I'm sure we all have some pieces of clothing that we no longer use, so why not donate it to someone that may need it. It doesn't matter how big or small, whatever you decide to give will make a difference in someone's life. 

5. The gift of time

Nothing can beat quality time with a loved one. Over the past two years, we've all learned just how important it is to spend time with the people you really love and care about. The gift of committing quality time to talk, listen and just be together is so special and should be cherished.

We hope these gift ideas that will cost you nothing motivate you to think outside the box. It really is the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas spirit, mulled wine, love, family and friends uniting the world in joy and harmony. Remember some of the greatest gifts don't have to cost a thing, it could be a smile, hug, love, kiss, support and thank you to our dears and nears or to a stranger. The list is endless, all you have to do is put your mind to it!
