Blog about how gifts do not have to be expensive, just thoughtful. If you have a friend who loves birds and you find a series of postcards with exotic birds on them, which would make a perfect gift. If you have a friend who has a penchant for sparkly things and bling, a fancy pen with rhinestones or a book mark with crystals is perfect. If you have a friend who loves to read, then a new book in his or her favorite genre is the perfect thoughtful gift.
