Every commercial, ad and sign is talking about what you NEED TO GET for Christmas this year. And though I can appreciate gadgets as much as the next, I really like to think more about what I can get other people than what I am going to get myself. I’ve always had a tough time making a Christmas list, maybe because I forget that I need anything, or maybe because when I think about it, I don’t actually NEED anything. Whatever the case, it’s always more exciting to me to give gifts this time of year.
What Are You Giving For Christmas?
So, since I get excited about giving and seeing others give, I wanted to pose this question to everyone out there? What gifts are you giving this year? Now, this doesn’t have to be a brag-fest, and there will be no judging on my part whether it’s a small or big gift, whether it’s material or not. I just want everyone to share a few of the gifts that they are excited about giving.
What Am I Giving?
Ok, I’ll start this game:
Personalized Coasters: Michelle is crafty. In an AWESOME way! 🙂 She’s making some personalized custom coasters (thanks pinterest!) for a relative on her side of the family. They’re the coolest looking ones I’ve ever seen, srsly!
Garden Markers Made With Old Bricks: Ok, writing this down reminds me that I never made a detailed post about our patio! DOH! Oh well, either way, we have some awesome old bricks (almost 100 years old, to be exact-ish), and Michelle is making garden markers out of them. I’m not sure who this is for, but hopefully they aren’t readin this blog, lol!
Wooden Toys From Consignment: Michelle is the queen of thrift. She found some AWESOME wooden toys at a consignment shop that she frequents, and cleaned them up for Nolan. He loves his current wooden toys, so I know he’ll dig these. Plus, they were super cheap, and will last a long time (but not 1,213,234 years like plastic toys). I’m kinda jealous, and am hoping for wooden blocks myself!
Painted Glass Bottles: Again, not sure who these are for, sorry if I ruined the surprise, but Michelle made some awesome painted glass bottles for decorations and to be flowers vases. Thanks again to pinterest for the inspiration.
So how about you? What gifts are you excited to give this year?
And speaking of giving, we’re giving away an iPAD 3!! I’m excited for whomever wins this prize, not only because it’s epic, but because I’m pretty sure my site looks amazing on Safari for iPad 😉
