12 Days of Christmas: The Ultimate Countdown with Gifts!
Most of us are familiar with the old carol “12 Days of Christmas”. Some of us may in fact know the lyrics by heart! You can give meaning to this age old carol by choosing 12 different gifts for your loved ones and do an exciting countdown. You really don’t have to choose expensive gifts to do this. The thought is indeed what counts. For day one you can consider gifting a home fragrance diffuser or a bottle of wine, day two, a pair of wine glasses, for day 3 two movie tickets for a 3:00 p.m. show, for day 4 2 pairs of Christmas socks etc. Think out of the box and try to choose gifts that your loved one will like too.
Leave out cookies and treats for Santa and his reindeer
If you have children, no doubt they will eagerly anticipate the arrival of Santa Clause! Make them a little more excited by leaving out cookies and milk for Santa Clause under the tree. You can also leave out a few carrots for Rudolph. Rumor has it that Rudolph is particularly fond of oatmeal mixed with glitter too! Get your kids involved in preparing a glittery concoction and leave a bowl of it by the tree. You can even mark a trail from the main road to your house by scattering bits of the oatmeal along the road. Your children will love doing this with you!
Pick a present for your house and for your pets
Yes you choose presents for your friends and loved ones but what about the faithful companions who shield you and protect you throughout the year?

Fill it with pet toys and pet treats. Your heart will truly be filled with childish delight and wonder when you do this!
