Day 2: 12 Days of Christmas - For Families
Fill this cheerful popcorn bowl full of treats! $16.95 from Crate & Barrel. What to fill it with?
Microwave popcorn packets, movie sized candy boxes from Target, a favorite movie or two. Look for old classics on DVD at Target that sell for only $5-6. Wrap in clear cellophane and a big bow. Who wouldn't be excited to get that!
Go big: Buy gourmet treats at Trader Joe's or a local upscale grocery store: macadamia nut caramel corn, chocolate truffles, assorted chocolate bars, peanut butter filled pretzles, toasted almonds, trail mix, or cookies. Add decks of card games such as UNO, Skip Bo, Old Maid, and Go Fish.
Other ideas for families: A board game they don't have yet, outdoor game equipment such as croquet or bocce ball, movie tickets, an annual museum or zoo pass, or an ice cream sundae themed gift basket including sundae dishes, candy toppings, sprinkles and sauces.
