the gift that stumps me every year

I've mentioned in years past that I like to get a good majority of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving. I'm just so organized like that.

Okay so no not at all, but this way I can avoid multiple last minute trips to Wally World that involve tears and long lines.

I find this plan also avoids losing my sanity.

So, I'm proud to say that I'm about 86.4% done with my shopping. There's a "Lost" DVD set waiting to be purchased, a toy for a 12 year old boy who has everything, and some Grandma gifts.

I always struggle with the Grandma gifts because how many fuzzy slippers and I heart Grandma mugs can you give?

What are you giving your Grandma/MeMaw/Gigi/Granny this year?

if she lives near you give her a coupon book that she can redeem for time with you ... there's nothing they enjoy more than time with their grandchildren.

I no longer have any grandma's, but for my husband's grandmas I went to Bath and Body and made "pampering kits"...a basket with lotion, body wash, those super soft slipper socks, and I am going to get them each a magazine subscription and stick one magazine in the gift basket. I *THINK* that they will both like them!

It always is hard to get gifts for people who have everything. I think I'm giving my grandma a pic of her and I from our wedding.

I got mine a scarf and some new pajamas. My grandpa is my hardest!

I wish I could help but I don't know either...

I hope you, the boy and pug have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
