Buying gifts for Christmas can be exciting, daunting, frighting, expensive, and depressing. What to buy can be the most perplexing question. Our granddaughter showed us her list and I don’t even know what she means. Another big question is the affordability of the item. Maybe you don’t have these problems, but if you do… These are my plans for the kids Christmas gifts.
I am going to make a memory album for each of the kids. After getting way too many photos together, I realized if I limited the memory album to just 2010, I could repeat the idea again next year and the year after. I have lots of pictures so this is a good gift idea for me. If this doesn’t work for you, how about sharing your memories.
CANDY AND TREATS
When I was a little girl, we had candy and treats that we only had at Christmas time. There were mixed nuts in the shell. We had Peach Blossoms that I always associated with Uncle Aubrey. Chocolate covered cherries were a family favorite – they were also a great gift to give. Fragile ribbon candy was more fascinating to look at than eat. It is like a piece of art. Steve got a gum drop tree one year. No one told him he shouldn’t eat all of the gum drops at one time. Needless to say, he got sick. He hasn’t eaten another gum drop since. Share your memories of Christmas’ past.
You have so much to give to those who are younger than you. Even if you don’t want to talk about you, talk about what life was like when you were growing up.
What kinda baby boomer were you?
