12 days of Christmas (gifts)

Well we decided to try something new this year (wife decided, I had no choice) We are getting each other small things with a "12 Days of Christmas" theme (kinda) It does not have to have anything to do with a pear tree or birds, just something fun and that deals with that person.


Anyway, has anyone else done this? What kind of things did you do?

I am almost done but I need a couple more days to complete this.

Thanks & Happy Holidays!

I love the idea!

What have you got so far... did you go with a theme or are the items unrelated?

I cant really say what I have gotten so far because she sometimes posts on here uner this name.

The gifts are not expensive but has some meaning. I am not sure the gifts are that great so I am hoping to win her over by presentation and what goes along with it.

haha Sorry I cant tell you, I will try to update when each day comes.

I did find this and thought I would change the wording, write something personal, and print them out to go along with the gifts.

This is something similar. The gifts do not have to be expensive or cost money at all, just as long as you spend time and show the other person how you are feeling.

Still need a few days so any help would be great!!!

well, if I were in your family and had to come up with a gift it would be a really nice long lasting scented candle...........both sexes love these....we're playing a game this year, as suggested by my sister-in law,too.......and I'm really looking forward to it.....but I'll share this on another thread once I figure out how to post it.......see, you can be here for a long time and still be a Jethro Bodine............
