					Timeless Holiday Gift Ideas

Throughout our lives, there are certain constants that always remain.
Whether it is a simple black dress that goes with anything, or the suit
blazer that can be worn with a T-shirt, a collared shirt or even formal
wear. Or even how a pair of jeans always remains in style - there are
always a few timeless items that never truly grow old. This article is to
help you with some timeless holiday gift ideas that are sure to last more
than a lifetime.

One timeless holiday gift idea is the gift of music. Young or old, if
they have an interest in music, supplying them with a musical instrument
can be a wonderful investment in their lives. Some of the more popular
musical instruments are the piano and/or electric keyboard, guitar,
violin, flute, recorder and drum set. Even though it will take time for
the person to learn how to play the instrument, once learned it will be a
gift that continues to give, possibly for several generations if passed
down the ranks.

Another popular and timeless holiday gift idea would be that of handmade
or heirloom jewelry. From the stunning pendants to the glittering
necklaces, jewelry has always remained with us. Although there does exist
what some would call fashion jewelry, there remains a simplistic and yet
elegant charm to the designs of old. Jewelry also seems to become a tool
for passing down family stories and heritage, and thus fits nicely into
the timeless category.

For those who are believers, a wonderful and timeless holiday gift idea
is that of the Good News, also known as the Holy Bible. For quite a long
time, passing down the Holy Scriptures from Parent to Child has been an
important tradition, and one never taken lightly. The old family Bible,
although tattered and torn and perhaps even worn in a few places, it is a
special part of the family and is more precious to them than gold, silver
or even platinum. Bibles and other such books always make a smart and
timeless gift to give.

This leads us to another timeless holiday gift idea in the form of a
book: photo albums and scrapbooks. Whenever a natural disaster strikes
and someone's home has become destroyed, when asked what they miss the
most out of their belongings, it is always the family photo album. Photos
hold our memories with them, and help remind us of where we came from and
what we have become. Thus small, handmade collections of special photos
are always a welcome and timeless gift to receive.

Of course, one tradition that will always be a smart and timeless holiday
gift tradition will be that of making and giving away baked goods made
from the heart and family recipes passed down from as far as the family
can remember. The number one requested item out of these baked goods are
always chocolate-chip cookies. No matter what, the smell of cookies
cooking is a welcome scent, and one that always brings a smile to our
face. And who can forget making sugar cookies with our mothers and
grandmothers for the special holiday occasion?
Finally, the most timeless holiday gift idea of all is that of giving
money. When all else fails, money is seldom, if ever, turned away as a
gift. No matter how fashion and technology changes, money or it's
equivalent will always remain as a good and thoughtful, and especially
timeless, gift to give. In fact, money is the number one requested item
no matter what the holiday season being celebrated is!
