    If you are still struggling to find the perfect gift, consider a gift of time.  I reviewed what I suggested last December and I believe it is still relevant today.

    1. A gift of time

    Give your friend who has children a break and offer to babysit the children. She can use that time to run errands or sleep. Offer to help a friend organize her house or clean her car. Offer to drive a friend who does not own a car. Teach an elderly person how to use a computer to send email or how to use their phone to text. We each have talents that we can share with someone. Our time is valuable and when you offer your time to a friend, it is priceless.

    1. Write a letter

    With everyone texting or sending emails, it is truly appreciated to get a letter in the mail. Consider writing a letter to someone that you have not spoken to in a while. You can use that opportunity to thank them and tell them what made them special.

    1. A box of positive quotes

    You can write down some positive quotes on some paper (have 52 of them) and put it in a box or a jar and then the person can pick one out each week. What a wonderful way to start the week.

    1. Movie night

    Take out a movie from the library (if it is a recent movie, you might have to reserve it way in advance) and host a movie night. Make your own popcorn and invite some friends.

    1. Make breakfast for the family

    It does not have to be very elaborate. Just tell a friend that breakfast is on you. Make oatmeal, boil some eggs and make a smoothie – voila – breakfast on you.

    The list is endless. Be creative.

    Remember this is the time of the year to enjoy your family, friends and colleagues. Spend some time meditating on what matters.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
