I paired these three adorable puppets with a farm animal book for my special little friend.
For older children in your life, I think Webkinz are a great gift. They are reasonably priced and a lot of fun. Here is the explanation of Webkinz they give on their website: "Webkinz pets are lovable plush pets that each come with a unique Secret Code. With it, you enter Webkinz World where you care for your virtual pet, answer trivia, earn KinzCash, and play the best kids games on the net! " My nieces and nephews adore Webkinz. They are available at most gift shops, and they also come in a variety of animals. Below is a picture of the Cocker Spaniel Webkinz.
I have a lot of coffee lovers in my life. I, myself, am not a coffee lover, but I enjoy giving the gift of coffee. This year I found a Starbucks coffee variety pack at Barnes and Noble. It has 6 different coffees in it, and it makes a perfect gift for one special coffee drinker in my life. I didn't purchase these, but they are oh so cute-Starbucks has Christmas ornaments. They are pictured below. I also enjoy buying coffee from Jittery Joes, a coffee company based out of Athens, GA. You can order from Jittery Joes on-line. A fellow blogger also has an on-line coffee store. You can check it out here.
For my male coworkers, I always give the gift of food. Last year I gave them green pepper jelly from Bird Cookie Company in Savannah. It is delicious served over a block of cream cheese with crackers. This year I am giving them a can of boiled peanuts. The peanuts were grown and canned in South Georgia.
My favorite gift I am giving this season is to a married couple that are dear friends of mine. They have been very busy with their jobs this year, and I thought I would do something special for them. I am putting together a date night basket to give them. So far the date night basket includes a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant, a gift certificate to Blockbuster, movie candy, popcorn, a cute popcorn tub, and a few other munchies. It looks so cute all put together. I hope they will enjoy it and have lots of fun on their date night.
Christmas shopping can be so hectic, but it is also so much fun! I hope you have lots of fun as you finish your Christmas list! Feel free to share your favorite gifts that you are giving this year! I always love hearing your fabulous ideas! Merry Christmas!
