Can you believe Christmas is in less than two weeks? We just got our Christmas cards tonight (yeah Walmart 1 Hour!) and it brought to mind a somewhat odd but awesome gift I got from my mom last year. It’s simple, cheap and heartfelt. How can you go wrong? It’s the perfect gift for the college bound, new house owner, newly-wed or anyone who recently headed out on their own.
All you need is an address book, a pen, lots o’ addresses and time. Sit down with a hot cup of coffee or cocoa and fill that baby up with the addresses of close friends and family. Tuck in into a stocking or wrap it up with pretty stationary. You might get some raised eye brows but wait until it’s time to send out thank you cards, holiday or birthday cards and then you get to be a hero!
[Even though I give the credit to my mom, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a self-less gift, she just got sick of my sister and I calling her for addresses every time we sent a card]
