This Holiday Season has been CRAZY with my husband working at the hospital in his 3rd year of medical school, having a baby a couple of weeks ago, starting our new sister website (myrecipemagic.com) and finishing our cookbook…. the list really goes on and on. I feel like I haven’t spent a lot of time with my husband! I try and write little notes every now and again, but I wanted to do something really special for him this year! My friend told me she did the 12 days of Christmas for her husband and I LOVED the idea! Here were some of her suggestions along with some of my own!
Day Number 1: This is the easiest day because you just need one item. Some examples are: A Pocket knife, Wallet, Beanie, Duct Tape…. Be creative!
Day Number 2: Things that come in two! Socks, gloves, underwear, tickets to movie or a sports game. (My favorite… electric tooth brushes!)
Days Numbered 3 and 4: These ones are pretty easy too! There are many things that come in packs such as: car wash tokens, golf balls, socks, mini flashlights, hand warmers, packs of gum, etc.
Days Numbered 7, 8, 9, 10, 11: The higher the number, the more creative you have to be! Home made cookies delivered to his work, Hot Cocoa Packets, A screw driver set, A CD with 10 songs from the year that you met, A list of 11 reasons why you love him, a gift card, homemade coupons, you could also use the number as the time and surprise him at that time.
Day Number 12: This one isn’t too bad because 12 is a dozen! Batteries, His favorite magazine for 12 months, Tools (many tools come in sets of 12), My husband LOVES Lion House Rolls – he will be excited for this one!
We would LOVE to hear any ideas that you have! Merry Christmas!!!!
