This year is feeling different with gifts for the immediate family. The ideas are not flowing as much. I think part of it is the children are getting older - teens and pre-teen. Here's what I want to get done this week.
Household Checklist :
- Freeze orange quarters for Christmas punch. Cut oranges in thin slices to dry and put on Christmas tree
That's a great idea! Thanks, Minta. Now my creative juices are starting to flow...How about personalizing a movie basket for each one.. get baskets or gift bags .. place a drink (water, sports drink, favorite brand of soda), a movie they want, a bag of chips, popcorn or pretzels, a pack of their favorite candy and maybe a small pack of cookies or snack cakes. I haven't meet a teen or pre-teen that doesn't love movies and junk food LOL. You could also add a pair of slipper socks or fuzzy socks too. Instead of chips you could make a big batch of reindeer chow and place those into cute little snack bags.
And regarding ideas for teens -- remind me, are they boys or girls and older teens or younger teens? I'll share my list. I'm going shopping for the stuffers today. EOS lotion was on the list for both girls. I have some fun college dorm items on the list for the older ones.
