Gift Ideas that Cost Nothing

Don't give in to commercialization. Offer your time, body, or attention as a gift.
Use your favorite text editor to produce a voucher redeemable for a future service you are willing to offer. Include the voucher with a card and presto, you've created a free gift. Here are some examples.

1)Offer one day as a slave to someone you care for.
2)Offer a sexual favor. Who would refuse a hand-job?
3)Offer to clean house or do handyman work in the nude.
4)Help someone organize their affairs.
5)Offer to babysit one night for free.
6)Wash someone's car.
7)Offer to shovel a snow-filled driveway.
8)Offer to run errands for a day.
9)Offer to check a job seeker's references (i.e. pretend to be a potential employer and call a friend's references to make sure that no one is sabotaging a job search).
10)Offer to provide a great reference to a job seeker.
11)Offer to house-sit.
12)Offer to take care of a pet when a friend is on vacation.
13)Offer a massage.
14)Offer to be a waiter at a house party.
15)Offer to cook a meal.
