So I am browsing Pinterest tonight and I am coming across some amazing ideas. I figured I would share a few of the things I have found!
Day 1: Any single object – this is where I usually spend a little money and give him something I’d otherwise have tucked under the tree. A hat, tool, piece of masculine jewelry, etc.
Day 2: Think pairs! Socks, gloves, matching mugs for him and her, sunglasses, pants, long underwear, tickets to a concert or a game.
Days 3, 4, 5, and 6: What comes in packs? Golf balls, socks, briefs, favorite candy, guitar picks, favorite beverage, refills for his razor.
Days 7, 8, 9, 10, 11: Higher numbers get a little trickier – just think ‘small’ and you can do it! Cookies, packaged and delivered to work. A CD with 11 songs. Post-it-note love notes hidden through the house.
Day 12: Think ‘by the dozen’ or ’12 months in a year’. A magazine subscription, coupons for a monthly date night or a dozen chicken wings for lunch.
- A book or film with a number in the title
- A series of emails or texts sent to him throughout the day
- A gift certificate or coupons for his favorite meal
- A collection of poems (Haiku is a quick and easy!)
- Decorate your bedroom with a number of lit candles
- Love letters — New or old
- A custom CD of your favorite love songs
- Coupons to redeem for a massage — given by you!
Once you’ve collected your little gifts, wrap the items up and stash them away where he won’t find them. I would personally jot down which gift I’m giving him on which day in my day planner so I don’t forget and I would probably mark them as well so I dont get them mixed up, knowing me, I would if I didnt do something like that.
These look mighty delicious. I am actually thinking about making these for our Christmas dinner at my fiances’ grandparents house. They would put a nice little twist on everything. I found the recipe and everything for these over at Daisy’s World. Be sure to go check it out.
This is an amazing idea! I will be making one of these next year, maybe not even for Christmas but for my daughters room as a night light! To find out how to make it and all the things you will need, go check out Salt Tree. There is also a lot of other cool crafts there as well!
As I find things that I think would be nice to share, I will jot it down for you all. Hope you enjoy this entry as well as I do.
