Unique Gift Ideas

The following are gift ideas I use regularly for my mother, my fiance, my uncle and my cousins.


Customized stationary and cards... Be creative with your prints by putting them on customized greeting cards and stationary. This is a wonderful gift for prison inmates.

Customized Postcards & Postage Stamps -Zazzle has very good postcards and will make stamps out of any picture. There are literally thousands to choose from, or you can use your own photo if you want.

Books & Magazines

Paperback Books - If you are allowed to send your prison inmate books, please do. There isn't much to do in prison so reading can be a lot of fun for those that are able to do it. If you cannot send the whole book, you can copy a chapter at a time to send to your loved one in prison. COOL IDEA: When sending packages, get 2 copies of a book... one for your loved one and one for you. Agree on the number of pages to read and later, discuss what you read through your visits and letters.

Magazines Subscriptions - Everyone loves a good magazine but prison inmates especially love them because they can't always keep up with what's going on outside the prison walls. They will enjoy just about any magazine they are able to receive. Any news from the outside is better then what they hear inside. >>>>>>>> COOL IDEA: If you cannot find a way to send them the whole magazine, tear out some pages or cut out pictures and send them a few at a time.
