List: Family Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is swiftly approaching.
Oh, how I don't want the season to end.
I'm excited to see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree and window shop at Macy's on 34th st.
I live for the cheesy Life Time movies, the yummy fig cookies, and the mugs of hot chocolate.
I get happy when I wake up to a decorated tree and a house filled with red and gold.
Not to mention all those extra days off from work...
This is just overall the best time of year.

The hardest part of the holiday is picking out all the clever and tasteful, yet inexpensive gifts.
Luckily for me, I started early.  Like 6 weeks ago early.  Go me!
Mushy will wake up to an obnoxious amount of toys, clothes, and a potty with big girl panties.
My God son will get a few toys, a portable DVD player with a car holder, and clothes.
My baby cousin will get the game Battleship, a Hello Kitty Karaoke Player, and clothes.
Well, the kids are easy...They don't have everything yet, like us adults.

  1. The heated ice scrapper is sure a neat idea, never knew there was one of those. Ummm what if they look at your blog? Won't that spoil the surprise? lol

    If I showed some of what I got people on my blog blogger would rate my blog R lmao the cat is rather dirty.

    1. I figured that after your neighing zebra thong that you received a couple years back!! lmao

      No one I know really reads my blog. My fiance would rather watch paint dry than read anything more than (2) sentences long. My family doesn't look at it either. I'm not even sure if they know I'm writing in it again.

    2. Thankfully that is the way with mine too, more freedom when they don't read it

    1. I think that's the best one on the list too! My husband is Cuban, so I giggle whenever he says "esplaining". haahahaha

  5. Puma is one of my fave brands because they're so refined and stylish in design :) But not very comfy, I must confess...

    1. Oh, how I love Pumas. I used to have a pair in every color, and then my brother got a job at Adidas. My wardrobe suddenly changed after that. Free Adidas shoes will beat the Pumas anytime. LOL

  6. My boyfriend is getting video game related things. We may do Secret Santa at work but I'm not sure. That's about it this year. Last year, I went crazy with presents, but this year everyone just wants to keep it chilled out and simple. Probably because nobody has a bunch of money and nobody likes getting a whole bunch of super cool things unless they can give a whole bunch of super cool things too.

    1. My dad's side of the family does Secret Santa...and that goodness for that because that side of my family is HUGE.

  7. Battleship was always one of my favorites. We never had the fancier version of the game though with the lights and sound.
