Gift Ideas - #3
Christmas Eve is here...ready or not! We celebrated here at home with our little family last night. At 11:10 p.m. Yeah, it was exhausting, after a busy day at work followed by a couple of hours of last minute shopping. But the kids were excitedly persistent, and they won. It did buy us a morning to sleep in, so I guess that is a worthwhile trade. :-)
We have done a really large variety of gifts this year, and that has made giving a little more interesting.
Last year, a student gifted me with this adorable painted pail that reads "Merry Munchies." It was full of goodies, which I emptied with help from my junk food lovin' kids. This year, I chose a recipient, filled the pail with items I knew were her personal favorites, dropped it into a clear bag, and tied it with raffia. Not only did I clear one item from my stash, but someone else received a nice gift! :-)
