I know Christmas seems really far away. I know this seems ridiculous on the surface. I also know it can help to accomplish my goals, though! So, I thought I would re-focus and concentrate this month!
Did you check the Christmas links in the navigation bar? There are a few (awesome ones, of course!), but I'd love to see more. Please add your link so we can get stuff done before the middle of December--or later! Remember, it can be anything that is a good gift idea; it doesn't have to be a Christmas "thing" or idea. I see so many out there--let's put them in one place!
This month, I am planning to make a list of friend and neighbor gifts. You don't need every idea you like, just the ones you want to consider for use this year. I have seen some great ideas. Actually, some of the ideas I have seen for teacher appreciation ideas would adapt well for neighbor gifts. So, add a column to your Christmas gift list and start listing ideas for neighbor gifts.
One of the ideas at the top of my list is to make a glass plate which has "Cookies for Santa" etched into it. I have seen this idea or similar ones floating around the blogosphere for a while, but I don't have one original source. I am a little undecided since I did a Cookies for Santa Kit last year. I don't think I can go wrong with cookies, though--in any form.
I am also planning to complete one gift. Just one.It will put me well on my way, though. I can do that! Hmmm...I am thinking I should complete the one gift that I can use for more than one person--that would really get me ahead! And, don't you think the "Cookies for Santa" plate would work perfectly here, too?
Here are your goals this month:
Write down/Compile ideas for neighbor/friend gifts.
