If you read personal finance blogs, you've noticed a lot of posts lately about thrifty gift giving; and ideas range from homemade gifts, to IOUs for services, to garage sale finds. My list is going to be gifts that money can't buy.
Money can't buy family or their love, and without them, life would be so empty. Thank you God for the gift of my family.

Money can't buy faith; and without it there is no long-term hope. Thank you God for the gift of faith in You.
Money can't buy the beauty in nature. Yes, it may cost money to go and see places far from home, but most of us live close to natural beauty, beauty we may not even notice because to us it is so normal. Thank you Lord for the beauty of the earth You made.
Especially in light of recent events, we realize that money can't buy peace. It can buy weapons, it can support armies, and the lack of it can make men easy pickings for terrorists, but money can't buy peace, either worldwide or within our homes and hearts. Please God, grant us peace.
May the Joy of Christmas be with you and you loved ones now and forever. God Bless each of you--you are another thing money can't buy--readers for a blog!
