This is one of my favorite gifts to give. Each page has a daily entry for five years so that your recipient will have a spot to jot down her thoughts or events as the years pass. It's a sweet way to be reminded of memories or see how things have changed over time.

A plant makes a great thank-you gift for anyone but particularly for those who already have a green thumb. We love the Costa Farms Snake Plant because it comes ready to give or ship in a sweet little pot, is available in multiple sizes and is backed by a 4.5-star rating on Amazon.
