I got an email yesterday from a company we shop from occasionally. They had these talking plush items om sale that coincide with a family favorite show so I forwarded the email on to the hubs and he agreed they would be well loved additions to our kid's christmas items.
So this morning I ordered them, I even ordered dh one, lol to put on his desk at work!!!
My dh and my kids love Doctor Who, so I ordered them a talking Tardis, a talking Dalek and a Talking Cyberman!
Yay!! I am on my way!!!
Other Ideas I have are:
For the sister-in-laws and other females that receive a gift from us: crocheted socks!! Socks are the only reason I have ever wanted to learn to knit, but I found some free patterns on Ravlery.com and even some books out there that show crocheted socks that look as great as knit ones so I am thinking each sil will get a pair of crocheted socks as their small personal gift.
I am still working on an idea for a small personal gift for the guys in the family they are a little harder to figure out.
Then as a family gift I am taking the boxes that Kara's diapers come in, I am going to wrap them in christmas wrap or decorate them some way then I hope to fill them with hm goodies, either baked, canned or mixed up.
I am thinking hm spaghetti sauce, hm dried noodles- maybe I've only made noodles once, hm grilling spices, hm baking mixes. Or maybe a pizza basket with hm pizza sauce, hm pepperoni- agian maybe since I haven't done this but want to try to make my own etc.
Who knows what I will come up with for my hm goodie baskets.
Other crocheted ideas for the ladies are washcloths for the kitchen, or scarves and hats.
I am excited to be sure!!!
What ideas do you all have rolling around that you might want to share?? I am open to all ideas!!!
Have a great day!!
