There were many indoor business games like monopoly which taught us, how to invest and where to invest and the importance of savings. Those lessons we learned then proved to be useful and practical today. When we are planning a gift for our children we generally think of something which will benefit them in the long run and something which will have a higher value in the future.

Arts and Antiques
These are assets which you can use to decorate your home and thus make a great deal of gift to present it to your parents. You have to be very good at determining which art piece is original and which antique piece is an antique and not an artificial. Artwork by famous artists holds a great value especially if that artist is no longer lives. And antiques, as you all know, are important to revive our history in the present. So how can anyone not value these things? Some of the items are even costlier than your house itself. Strange isn’t it? But true. These types of things are auctioned and its advertisement is published through various media channels for the public to know. Some of them are also available for online gifts delivery.
