I'm SO excited to have my brother, Andrew and his girlfriend, Jenna here for Christmas this year.
We don't have much/any money so I need to plan ahead when it comes to gifting.
With Halloween, Thanksgiving (My birthday, Guy Fawkes Day, St. Andrew's Day) and then Christmas I get overwhelmed and need to think a bit further in advance.
Last year we went to Scotland and surprised my family for Christmas. This year we'll be here in California. It'll be a humble affair and I'm pretty excited, I won't lie. Christmas in a new place, with new people and a new situation. Oh yes!
So again, like last year Stuart and I are giving a few gifts and because we can't afford to spoil people we want them to still feel very lucky with the specially chosen gifts we'll be giving. Thought is going to go into each and every one of them, more than normal.
Here's our plan (I'm really in a listy mood right now and I'm using a lot more brackets than normal)...
-Make gifts. I'll be compiling links and ideas throughout the season. If you have any share them too!
-Buy home made gifts - Etsy!
We want to support the little man and I'd like to encourage you to too. (To-Too! Tutu! Toot toot!)
I love Etsy. Gifts can be shipped straight to the recipient and sometimes shipping will be free AND the items will be gift wrapped.
I'll be Etsy-ing and Decclo-ing. You should too!
