Love/Hate Christmas Relationship
Yes that's my tree put up on Saturday, I hope it lasts until Christmas! It's J's first REAL Christmas tree :)
I absolutely love Christmas but I cannot stand Christmas shopping. Finding parking, waiting in lines, browsing things forever and not having any ideas!
I am a bit of a procrastinator as well so that never helps. This year I am almost done one gift and have a few ideas in mind for others too.
I've already started making J's gift. He is getting 6 months of dates (12 dates was too much at once)! He actually really loves gifts of experience so it will be perfect. He bought me tickets to see Aladdin for my birthday, and I got him tickets to a baseball game for his. This year although I am not quite complete he is getting...well let me just show you.
January snowshoe rental for trails and subway date.
February a twisted fairytale play and dinner out
March tickets to see one of his favourite hockey teams
April is going to be local movie theatre tickets (not purchased yet).
May is an ice cream date at a new place and tickets to a musical
He will also get a board game (Cards Against Humanity) so he has something to open on Christmas day because the rest are sealed in envelopes.
I think for something different this year, his family is going to get a GOAT! Not for them, but for a family in a developing country through a charity that I will decide upon soon.
My brothers are getting gift cards to stores close to them.
I'm lacking ideas for my three best friends and my parents...might be in the malls after all this year...
