With Black Friday looming on the horizon, I thought it would be appropriate to ask for this week’s Monday Musings, “Are there any special gifts you are buying this Christmas?”
My husband and I don’t have anything on our list. We feel blessed, and aside from just the joy of being together, can’t think of anything that we want under our tree. But I still want to get him an awesome gift. By this time he has usually made his list of games he wants. He also collects Star Wars memorabilia, but I am hesitant to getting something “authentic” that is really just junk. The Dallas Cowboys are his favorite team, but he already has a suede jacket, and jerseys galore.
When I surprised him with the jacket, the look on his face was priceless. I want to capture that look again. So any ideas ladies?
For our kids, the list is pretty simple. A few video games, a few toys. They have had their list made out for awhile now. My youngest says, “That’s what I want for Christmas”, to every toy commerical that comes on.
Every year we have a few staple gifts. Books are one of these. I usually add some of the latest books to my kids’ favorite collections, like the April Grace series, or Vet Volunteers for my daughter, and Star Wars for my son. Anything Barbie, Tinkerbell, or Princess fits my youngest.
If you do books, make sure you enter the Mary’s Son giveaway. What a great way to save money – a free hardcopy of such a wonderful tale.
What about you? What is on you and your family’s Christmas list?
