i like that idea with board games.Maybe you could cook together and my idea would be to buy a big frame and you could stick in pictures of the family and let the kids decorate and maybe write down some words.When its finished hang it up as a family.Family is the greatest gift. My idea for a gift for the girls would be a little cute wrapped up bag with maybe a little bar of soap,lipgloss and a nail polish and then you could write a voucher for a beauty day with mommy.You could make a face/hand/feet peeling..colour eatch others nails and cucumber slices for the eyes and make a special wellness drink.
For your 15year old son i am not to sure what gift idea. But if you like i could send you a mail with homemade cheap recipes for that wellness day?
