Hanson Claus has been out and about delivering gifts to put under trees OR opened upon receipt for those "sneaky peekers" on our list.
Sooo many folks that fall into the..."has everything"...or if they need it ...will buy it themselves....kind of people. They are the same ones who don't expect anything..and are so appreciative of any small gesture.
Here is an idea that anyone can use no matter what their present budget. One of the people on our list LOVES movies...and while he and his wife can well afford a night at the Cinema...we thought packaging it a iittle differently...would be fun....Soooo we went to see our friends at the Dollar Store...an inspiration for all things decorative and bought a large plastic Popcorn Box like one that you would see at the movies of cardboard. The bottom was stuffed with packing peanuts and we put large "movie candy" treats on top...you know...the Milk Duds and JuJu Bee..kind of thing....and the card had movie passes and gift certificate to a restaurant near the theater.
Throw in some bright red cellophane shred, cover with a clear basket bag....add a ribbon...and Voila...."that's entertainment" ! The dinner can be as lavish or casual as you wish...passes for one night or several...or you might have a local playhouse/theater or other venue that you know the recipient would enjoy. This also works as a closing gift for anyone as well.
It's just fun ! We know it will be used and enjoyed...just the right size, flavor, color...no worries of being "re-gifted" !
