  1. I’m planning on getting the kids some board games so that we can have fun together!

  2. No kids to buy for, but neice and nephew are getting gift cards for part of their gifts, they are teens now and in all honesty what they want is to just get out and about doing things with their friends. Mall cards and movie cards let them do just that!

  3. I will buy some books, a small LEGO set, and fill the stocking with a Christmas orange, lip chap, and chocolate.
    I like that LUSH FUN bar.
