Well, it’s that time again! Panic is settling in and I am wracking my brain on what to get everyone for Christmas. Aside from my vow not to procrastinate on the gift buying…my husband and I will be travelling to NYC a little early this year to spend Christmas with his family, so really – I don’t even have the opportunity to procrastinate much more than I already have!
I have the hardest time shopping for the boys of the family. Not children, mind you, but grown men that can have a bit of a boy mentality (don’t they all??). But somehow, I need to find gifts for 6 grown men that already have everything they could possibly want.
In my desperate search, this is what I’ve come up with:
Aside from shopping, I’m also working on my Christmas décor…slowly but surely! We’ll finally be getting the tree this weekend and I have every intention of making a big day of it. We’ll be chopping our own tree this year, and much celebration and eggnog will follow – I’m so looking forward too sharing pictures of the aftermath!
I also plan on creating a garland for our mantles this weekend, but I already started on the details…
I’ll have a little sparkle woven into my garland this year! All you need is adhesive spray, glitter of your choice, a few plastic fruit pieces, and voila!
You’ve got yourself some bling. Just be sure to place newspaper down before the glittering begins – it can get messy!
So tell me, how is your decorating coming along? Are you ahead of the game or are you only just beginning?
Gifts for 6 grown men… thats tough! best of luck with your shopping 🙂
I agree, the boys are always the hardest to shop for!
Well thanks goodness I don’t need to find that many man gifts 😉 I’m do e with decorating though, I tried to pick up some more at the store today but put it back after deciding (wisely) that I don’t need anymore! The more I put up the more I have to pack away.. Bah humbug 😉 good luck getting your shopping done!
Agreed Susan! Sometimes less is more 🙂 As for the luck, I’ll need every bit of it! Thanks 🙂
