We did kris kringle this year and it worked a treat. Only 1 present, $50 limit and whoever you got nominated a couple of things they would like. Everyone got exactly what they wanted and nobody felt they had to spend extravagantly. Kids were excluded. Compared to previous years it was so much better and felt more purposeful. I'm definitely going to be introducing it whenever I host.

Ok, so fil has just had to fix 2 toy cars that him and mil gave the kids for Easter. They then thought they would give them another 2 for Christmas, slightly different but hand made by the same person. Wouldn't you think to check to see if they were going to break in exactly the same way? Apparently not. One was broken within 5 minutes of playing with it.

Hopefully it will create enough negative ions to eliminate all the bad things in my house... 😏and it's helping air pollution... Awesome! 😳
LOL! Do these actually work?! I'm overly sceptical, obviously.
The look in my face when I opened it would have been priceless.

So my grandparents (grandma in particular) are very well meaning, but sometimes their gifts are a little, well, odd. For example
My 13th birthday they gave me an electric toothbrush. The same year for xmas they gave me a pedistal fan.
This year, they gave dh a birthday present... and then gave me a present as well. It was matching jewellery boxes. They are made of glass with peackocks all over them. Dont get me wrong, they are gorgeous and the thought was much appreciated, but a) in no way was it masculine at all and b) dh doesnt even own a wedding ring let alone any other jewellery. Grandma made the comment "they can sit on your bedside tables"... we all had a good laugh when i pointed out I will have to actually buy some bedside tables first lol.

My crappiest gift is the nothing my DP has given me after hinting that he was considering getting me a handraised bird that i really want. Apparently he is now off to buy me a bunnings gift voucher since he now doesnt want to get the bird. Wish i had the money to buy the damm bird myself but i spent it all buying all of christmas for the step sons and our DD. Poo to him.
