Many years ago, branches of my family would have a themed Christmas, from Mugs to Chocolates, home-made produce (I did sweets) and novelty gifts.
Over the years, everyone received the same gift of spectacle torches, videos, wine racks and whiskey glasses from one of my siblings. Not wishing to sound ungrateful as we were glad to be remembered, but we found the spectacles the most useful as the 3 video titles we already had, and we don’t drink.
This year, I’m thinking about having a fridge magnet Christmas.
There are just so many to choose from, they don’t cost the earth (from as little as £1) and you can have numbers and letters of the alphabet, pieces of fruit, cars, cakes, buildings, animals etc so there is bound to be one suitable for every member of the family (not that I would actually have that many to buy these days but they are easy to post away).
Some of course are visual, like 2 cats looking at a computer mouse scratching their heads, but there are some real classics out there, so if you’re stumped for the ‘Perfect Gift’ on a budget, give it some thought.
There are some with great sayings too such as
I’ve never met a chocolate I didn’t like and
If Mothers were flowers, I’d pick you.
These will hopefully make you smile 😀
The dieter’s aid:
Night night Maggie (This one I got for Hubby’s birthday)
But the best by a mile to date has to be:
“The words you are looking for are ‘ Yes Dear ‘ “, which I actually saw in a church gift shop.
Surprisingly I couldn’t find an image for you, but this is pretty close:
Love it (boy, am I going to get some stick for that) !
