Last Minute Gift Idea for Family or Friends~



A sweet friend stopped by with her equally sweet Southern momma this morning to see our Christmas decorations.  Her mother has heard about our Ginormous Mr. Willoughby Christmas tree for the past several years, and had to see it for herself.

When I opened the door she presented me with a couple lovely packages.  But, it was the note attached that got my attention.

Just a few of our favorite things for one of our favorite family friends...

(insert husband's name) favorite game to play alone while (insert wife's name) is working on (blank)

To add flavor to our favorite foods

(insert wife's name) new favorite book

A box of goodies for our favorite night-Friday movie night at home

Just something cute to decorate with for our favorite holiday-Christmas!

Wishing you and your girls a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful 2016.

With love, the (blank) family

I was so touched by the thought behind the gifts.  We have been friends for over 20 years!  They know us well.

Just wanted to share in case you are struggling to find that last minute gift for family, friends or neighbors.
