My favorite gifts to give during Christmas are the little ones…and not just because it gives me an excuse to make frequent trips to Target. It’s been especially fun this year because Arden’s been my little sidekick elf–helping me pick out the presents, making cards to go along with them, and her favorite part of all: delivering the goodies.
For her two preschool teachers (who we ADORE), we put together a little “warm & cozy” gift bag. It included slippers, a candle, a Starbucks giftcard…and of course, some handmade artwork from Arden herself. She was so excited to deliver these to her sweet teachers yesterday and it just made my heart happy to see her experience the joy of giving firsthand.
Next…can you look at this picture without laughing? Because I CANNOT!
I can’t say this was the cleanest craft project we’ve ever done, but it sure did turn out cute. I love how you can tell how chubby Nash is just from his handprint. Love those little sausage fingers…
We made 2 of these–one for each set of grandparents…but I’m thinking we need to make one more so I can keep it for myself!
Last year I shared a movie night gift idea and printable that we gave to our neighbors. Well I’m so incredibly creative that I decided to do it again this year. The good news is though, we’ve met a lot of new neighbors in the last year, so this is the first time that most of them will receive it…
This gift is super easy, and super inexpensive–but it’s so fun to give! You can find the instructions and printable here.
See what I mean? Fun to give!
My little elf worked up an appetite making deliveries so we decided to bake some of my sister’s famous chex mix when we got home. If I can get her to sign off on the top secret recipe, I’ll share it tomorrow on my Five on Friday. Hint: lots of butter and worcestershire sauce are necessary.
Can you even believe we’re 8 days from Christmas?!? Is there any way to slow it down so we can enjoy this holiday cheer just a little longer?
