How long have you spent thinking of the best gift for family members or friends? I’m sure you have spent weeks and maybe months researching for the best gift idea. Make sure not to forget anyone on your list or when wrapping your gifts. After all that, you just feel exhausted…right? We spend too much on this but we still feel so happy. I always worry about whether I got everyone what they really wanted and if I remember everyone.
You know that gift buying sounds like an endless thing to do and when the unwrapping comes, it just happens so wild just like a tornado, with everybody thanking, kissing and throwing boxes and ribbons everywhere. You could enlighten this gift giving on holiday with a little fun and creative ideas.
You can make it a foreign affair!
Practice the “Julklapp” that they do in Sweden where people knock at each other’s door and throw a gift box inside the door, then disappear before the recipient sees him or her. Pack the gift in many layers and the more time the recipient takes to identify who gave the gift the more successful the game will be! Well, add a little tricky thing and make the gift inside the box a small note that tells where the real gift location is.
Why don’t you also add a little craziness and go around masked, to your close family members and friends ringing doorbells and demanding treats. You should get some treats unless the hosts recognize you from your voice, then you must unmask! And distribute treats to them. They practice this holiday habit in Canada and it turns to be so much fun.
