Buy an Aloe Vera plant from the store or get one from a friend. Plant it in your garden. It will multiply and grow many baby plants. When you need a gift, just take an coffee can or plastic milk bottle cut in half and fill with soil. Plant the small Aloe Vera plant in it and put a bow on the font. The container can also be decorated by wrapping it with wrapping paper and putting a bow on it. I also do this with herbs from the garden. It makes a great gift for the mom that has everything and is also the gift that keeps on giving.
The Aloe Vera can be used for burns, sunburns, as well as softening of dry skin. Many of my friends still have the ones I gave them and love the fact that when someone gets a burn or sunburn, they just have to run outside and pick a few leaves thus saving them time and money and instantly they think of me.

Source: I got my info from 2 cousins in Texas who grow Aloe in their yards. They both live near the coastal part of Texas, where it is hot, sunny, and basically dry. The Aloe stays out in their yard year round. In SC, though, it has to be brought in, as freezing temperatures will kill it.

Grow a pot of Aloe Vera in your kitchen. Break off a piece for a burn, rash, or scrape. Pat some gel on your face for a moisturizer. Use some as a hair gel. They reproduce quickly so repot and give as gifts!
