So, from memory, here's my January report:
- made personalized throw pillow covers for 4 early-year birthdays
- ordered super cute crocheted hats for the 2 newest DGDs
- ordered a bunch of stocking stuffer type games (like probably a dozen)
- ordered several sets of kitchen towels
Personalized throw pillow covers
Yes, I crochet...and I have lots of yarn...and I've even made a lot of hats. So why did I order some? Because they were just too darn cute AND on sale, of course! I'm talking less than $7 each and that included the shipping.
Stocking stuffer type games
The Best of Charades, LIFE Adventures card game, Disney Princess dominoes, etc, etc, etc - at under $3 each, how could I resist? With 11 grands, these will be great filler gifts to round out the holidays!
Seems everywhere I go, the kitchen towels are pretty ratty. So I decided that women on my list would receive new ones for their birthday. At $2-$5 for a set of two or three, how could I go wrong? And they'll be easy and relatively cheap to ship for the ones that need to be mailed.
Well, that's it for now!
What have you already done to prepare for Christmas 2013?
