This gift does take some time to create but something that could last for a life time. All you need is a jar, paper and a pen. The jar could be something meaningful to the person you give it to. The rule is that the person will open one note every day until there are no more left. When I made this gift for one of my friends, I did a count down to her next birthday meaning I had to write 365 days worth of notes. To make it more interesting you can do some notes from films or TV programs they like, jokes, words or wisdom, things to do together, why you love them and there are many more types you can do. If you want to make it more eye catching, you can colour code the notes you write.
