Seriously, Christmas is not about what we get and give, or how MUCH we give and get. And yet, gifting is a way we express our love, and it is quite fun to be able to give; often more so than to receive.
- you don’t have to give all 12 gifts, but if done so, I think it would be fun....much like that of a treasure hunt; an added bonus (or gift) that you give yourselves for managing to accomplish the whole list
- and you don’t have to talk others into playing along but, again, I think it would be more fun if it was a shared experience. I think it would be fun to see how each of you interpret and manage the gifting.
- also, items can be exchanged out, i.e., #1 can be replaced with something not bought and of your own design / idea
3. Something found....this should be something your partner has misplaced, lost or was stolen. If the item was expensive (over $5.00) look for an alternative, i.e., a ring (replace it with a dime store toy ring or candy ring), cell phone or i-pad / laptop (replace with a cheap note pad, a box of chalk, pencil(s) or origami paper fortune teller), etc.
