BABY GIFT IDEAS:

alt Our Relief Society gives a pair of baby socks with a comment, "Welcome Little One!  May your life be filled with the blessings that come from walking in righteousness.  Love, The ____ Ward Relief Society Presidency."  This is on an approximately 3"x2" cardstock. The text has been done on a computer and they've added a blue footprint stamp (I suppose it's pink for girls). They've added a hole in the top right corner and have tied a ribbon to it. Then the card was attached to the cute little socks, 2 pair.  (Idea by Wendy Hickman)

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS:

alt Christmas Ribbon Angel Ornament
alt Cute packaging idea by Jenny Funk
alt For Christmas gifts we always give the sister's their manual for next year with their name on it and a list of the lessons and dates for the upcoming year. Inside we also put a bookmark with a quote, or our goal for the next year, or one year we individualized them and put their goal as a visiting teacher on the bookmark. We also do a treat of some sort - last year we did a bag of M&M's with the story of the true meaning of Christmas using M&M's.  The year before it was a plastic gift bag with chocolate covered popcorn, etc. We hand the books out to the sisters at church and any that don't come for two weeks we divide those up and go with the visiting teaching supervisors and take them to their house. This way we are sure that every sister in the ward gets a contact during the month of December. (Kellie Lyon)

alt Service Reminder Slips shared by Colette Boomsta
alt Our ward is full of young families and we are constantly having new babies being born.  Our Compassionate Service leader had the bright idea to have a Enrichment night where several of the sisters got together and made several freezer meals and the Compassionate Service Leader just kept them in her freezer at home.  When someone came home from the hospital, she could then take one out a freezer, pick up a bagged salad and desert and drop it off the first night.  This gave her a chance to get the rest of the meals set up on the following nights. (Idea by Kim W.)

GIFT IDEAS:

In celebration of Valentine's Day, we are making aprons for all the sisters in the ward. We are a small ward, so it's not too taxing to make simple aprons. The children are going to decorate them with stenciled hearts and their signatures. With leftover material from other projects and fabric paints we have on hand, this activity is costing us $0 to do.

LEADERSHIP HELPS:

alt Calling Request Form for a Relief Society Teacher - This form is used to call new teachers to Relief Society.  Just give this form to the bishop so he can review their new responsibilities with them. 
alt E-Vite - If you have the e-mail addresses of your sisters, this is a free service that allows you to create a customized e-mail to send reminders for different events...you could even send them to your presidency to remind them of meetings...etc.
alt Here's an idea I've used in every organization where I've served, whenever I have a presidency meeting. I print out the agenda with the items that need to be discussed so we know how to divide our time and then at the bottom of the paper I write "ACTION ITEMS" where everyone can write down what they specifically need to do after the meeting. That way they'll remember details and what their stewardship is. It also helps to divide labor and help account for what happened at the meeting next time you get together. (Trina Boice)

alt Updates - Each ward I've lived in does this a little different but one Relief Society Presidency Member sent around a clipboard asking for sisters e-mail addresses.  Then they e-mail a newsletter each week, with talk highlights (very brief), new callings, announcements, birthdays, and all that happened in sacrament meeting (new callings, who spoke, etc.), Sunday school and Relief Society. It was great because if you missed church, you still knew what was going on and felt included on what was going on.

alt Angels Among Us by Katherine Eldredge
alt Celebrate Something Extraordinary by Lexie Borg
alt Chocolate Never Faileth by Nancy Wentzell - handout idea
alt For our R.S. birthday one year, we had an Old Fashioned Fashion Show. We asked the sisters to dig out their old wedding dresses, prom dresses, whatever they could find. As Enrichment Leader, I MC'd the event. I was able to wear a beautiful handmade dress from the 40's. The young women were our models. That was really fun because many of the girls found out they could not fit into their mothers dresses. As each girl walked out, I introduced the dress or outfit, any history of the dress, and whom it came from. Each sister also brought their own beautiful china cup and saucer and sipped punch and nibbled on dainty treats. We had a wonderful and memorable evening!  (Idea by Julie / ga01212009)
alt High Tea with Emma
alt Home, Family and "Purse'onal" Enrichment (Birthday Party)
alt Ice Cream Sculpting - I was able to use this idea for our Relief Society Birthday, although I know it was for the Young Women but I thought I could use the same idea for the Relief Society. The sisters enjoyed carving the ice cream.  (Shared by Gina Potts / ga03192008)

alt Our program's theme was: "How to be an 8 cow woman" based on the Johnny Lingo movie (the old one).  We had the movie first, then two speakers: "Holy Cow"- on how to become more spiritual and "Mad Cow"- on how to handle life's stresses without going crazy. They were excellent.  Then we had our luncheon: Hawaiian Haystacks, tropical slush, and birthday cake for dessert. We decorated everything luau style to fit the theme. Our tables were decorated in pink, yellow, purple table cloths with a short glass vase with tropical flowers. We had wall decorations too.  Everything was great, the speakers, the food and the attendance. (Credit Unknown)
