1. An envelope full of affirmations
You can spend time to create a stack of affirmations to gift to your loved ones. Affirmations are useful when it comes to motivating, encouraging, as well as cheering up someone when they are feeling down in the dumps.
You can handwrite a bunch of affirmations and make the letters as fancy or as simple as you think would suit the recipient. Your loved one will appreciate both the time that went into creating the affirmations as well as the thoughtfulness of providing them with an instant pick me up for future use.
A gift that won't break the bank but will score major points with your loved ones is a set of personalised coupons. You can hand make these from pieces of paper.
You can gift them a hug, a free chore, a homemade meal, a promise to babysit their kids so they can have a fun night out or even something naughty. Once you get creative, the possibilities are endless with coupons. The time spent making the coupon set as well as the redeemable item is sure to make the recipient feel loved and cared for.

3. Teaching someone a new skill
This idea is especially good for spending time with your children or younger loved ones. It allows you to spend quality time while teaching them a skill that will benefit them in their future. This can be something that is done manually, digitally or even a personal skill such as money management.
Create a playlist for your loved one that you know they will enjoy. This playlist can be based on a shared memory or experience, like that trip you both loved, or can be activity-based such as gym music. The recipient will appreciate the time you spent to compile the music and will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
