Everything is relative
Familyfun.go.com is a great source for coming up with gift ideas. It has lots of ideas for things that kids can make for a special gift as well. This month they have a neat feature on things to send for family members who live far away. My favorite one was "Beloved Baby Book". For this gift, you take pictures of all of your relatives, and collect them in a book, with captions like, "Grandma loves you, baby". Putting the pages in sheet protectors makes it safe for baby to look at. Another of the ideas was to take pictures of relatives and put their faces on simple stick puppets- each of these ideas helps children to recognize relatives they rarely see. I think this would be a fun gift for cousins to make for cousins that live far away... I think I see a project coming on. :)
