Advent Baskets

Our advent baskets.  Instead of Christmas gifts all opened on Christmas day,  three of our families put together one basket for each family with 25 small gifts in each basket.  One gift a day from December 1 to December 24th.  Then we drew names to buy one special gift for each family.  It was fun to shop year round for small lovely things to give each other and now we get to open a present a day.  I rather like this new tradition.

    Yes, it has been fun getting a head start on giving and receiving thoughtful, sane gifts too. 😉

    What a sane idea. Nice to spread the joy over so many days and avoid all the chaos that the 25th can be. Blessings to all.
