Must have XMAS gift?

Recommended Posts

DH and I stopped doing presants a several years ago. We typically try to do an activity. Last year I took him sky diving on his B-day etc... However this year for christmas, our calender is pretty booked. So maybe we will do small gifts. We are pinching pennies trying to save for a house.

I wish we could say we are taking Christmas down a notch or two....but we have an 8 year old who may be a little disapointed if we didn't do gifts. We kinda discussed doing a family gift and then getting the kids "santa" gifts. We were thinking of a Wii...cause it's a gift everybody...except Wyatt, he's only 13 months...will enjoy. But we aren't giving gifts to each other...so that maybe taking it down.

Ok I feel kind of bad because I can think of a zillion things I'd like! (I LOOOVE Christmas though - even more than my bday; giving and receiving gifts is one of my favorite things! wink.gif)

 

- Candles

- Vino

- A cute wrap around "robe-like thing" (lol) for when I get out of the shower

- There's a necklace and set of earrings I have my eye on

- Gift Certs.

- SoPhyto things (my skin care line)

- Peppermint Hot Chocolate

- new coat

- new purse

 

uhhmmm, that's all I can think of right now =P

DH and I will probably either not do gifts and save our money for things for the new house .... or just do a joint gift for each other (but we will be filling each others stockings).

 

Having our DW this year makes gifts for family easy - photo booksand framed pics. lol

I plan on getting FI an engraved liquor canistor with matching glasses. They have them at KegWorks (online) for about $100.
OMG I'm stealing your idea of a liquor canistor! FI would love this! Great idea!

A Wii is a perfect family gift! We love ours. Its definitely something everyone can do. Even my FI's 60 yr old father loves playing. Although he always plays tennis and always manages to hit whoever he plays w/ in the head!

I'm wanting a new camcorder, and an iTouch. We'll see what happens.

We wanted to cut back a little on christmas, so I thought I would start early and buy gifts as we go (mostly if they are on sale) to help out.... bad idea! Doesn't help cut down at all!!!! Instead, we've already got gifts for everyone, and we just keep on buying a little at a time. We'll probably end up having the biggest christmas we've had. Which is pretty big, last year we did big gifts... for one of his brothers we bought him rock band and he has 4 siblings and I have 3 and we always spend the same amount on all of them.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
