Several years ago I came across the idea of giving gifts to your husband to correspond with the 12 days of Christmas. I’ve always wanted to do this and had been thinking about putting it into practice this year, but when I saw Trina’s post at Passionate Homemaking I decided to give it a go.
(Yes, I know the 12 Days of Christmas actually begin on Christmas Day and in a countdown to Epiphany, but our 12 Days of Christmas will run from December 13th through the 24th.)
I’m trying to be as frugal as possible with the gifts so many of them will be using what I already have on hand in creative ways.
Here’s what I’ve put together so far, please let me know if you have any other ideas!
Day 1: one warm toboggan
Day 2: a candlelit dinner for two (well three including the baby, but that doesn’t sound quite as romantic, this dinner will be at home while my parents watch the older three for a couple hours)
Day 3: three ironed polos (Tim normally irons his own shirts for work, but I’m going to surprise him with three ironed shirts hanging on the ironing board)
Day 4: four painted hand prints (a wall hanging with the four kids’ hand prints)
Day 5: five sharp new blades (a new five blade razor ~ from the CVS stash)
Day 6: six peanut butter covered pretzel rods
Day 7: seven back massages (coupon book)
Day 8: eight packs of white hot chocolate mix
Day 10: ten things I love about you
Day 12: twelve peanut butter cookies

As you can see, I still need a couple more ideas. Any suggestions?
