My sister, brother in law and their two kids live in Japan so it’s rare that we ever see them. I love the idea of sending them a gorgeous advent calendar not only as a countdown to Christmas day, but maybe the kids will remember their auntie & cousins who love & miss them every day they open the little doors. My niece and nephew are both creative, fun spirited kids. Choosing a yarn crafting kit and the doodling robot kit were easy choices for them! There are loads of gifts for kids and science gifts available. Perfect gifts for her? Ladies love receiving cozy, relaxation gifts like a cute nighty. Especially when it’s so warm year round in Japan. For my brother in law I chose a pack of eight different hot sauces. He will no doubt love this. The spicier, the better!
My dad is one of those guys who never wants or needs anything, yet he’s so extremely generous that there’s no way I could let a holiday go by without sending him something. These gorgeous metal frames filled with out most current family photos are the perfect choice. I know that he’ll love and appreciate them, seeing the kids on his walls each day.
It would be great to be able to give my mom a huge hug at Christmas this year, since that won’t be happening I’m hoping this cozy robe will make do. And, some special treats, in the form of petit fours which I know are some of her favorites. My stepdad likes to eat anything weird! If it sounds gross to us, he probably loves it. These funky peanut butters will make a great gift for him.
I’ve had a lot of help from friends and family over the past year and this season I’m all about paying it forward and spreading the joy. I know of a local mom who has been having a rough time and really struggling, so gifting her with relaxation gifts (like a comfy throw blanket, tea, a cute mug and some bath & body essentials) would bring me joy and hopefully it would bring her an amazing amount of joy as well!
