So, I got my Mama one of these for her main gift:
She lives out of state, and has reached the stage in life where she doesn't really need any more STUFF, ya know?
I plan on making a year's worth of activities for her...I'll fill it with a gift card per month... to her favorite local shops and restaurants.... Mr. Christmas Heart is going back in October, so he can pick them up for me then.
I will also add some cash for things like the yearly garden tour and holiday home tour, etc. She doesn't have a computer, so I'll research the dates and such for her. I hope to also be able to include a little letter each month, with memories of how we used to go antique shopping together, or on the local garden tour, and that I'll be thinking of her, etc.
I'm sure she'll enjoy it, and it'll save me a ton of money on shipping!
The site has great gift ideas, too, and some great Christmas tips- I just searched the site for Christmas, but you can check on the Holiday section for great ideas on all the other holidays, too. There's even a Christmas in July article!
