This December life has been a bit crazy. We have a newborn (who turns 3 weeks old tomorrow!). We're also on a very tight budget. Hubby and I talked about not doing Christmas presents to each other this year.
I feel very lucky, even though we're pinching pennies (like everyone else). Hubby doesn't complain about my Twitter addiction. Thanks to the Clever Girls Collective, I won an amazing toy package last week during one of their Twitter parties. Thanks to them, my shopping for Sophia is done.
- I Can Do That Games!
- Eco Toy Alliance toy, Cool green toys that will last.
- Little Passports 3-month subscription. Ever since I heard about them from Tech Savvy Mama, I knew Sophia would love getting mail about Sam & Sofia's adventures around the world.
- VTECH V-Motion™ Active Learning System Sophia has been asking for this toy every time we go to Toys R Us (ok, as well as the Leapfrog Zippity and a gazillion other toys, com'on, she's 4!). As much as I've been against getting her a game system that hooked into the tv, this one is educational at least.
Clever Girls Collective, you totally helped us make an amazing Christmas for our daughter!
Now I just have to figure out what to get my sister (can't tell you because she reads my blog). Also hubby's birthday is 3 days before Christmas, so have to figure out that one.
Since hubby & I decided not to get each other presents for Christmas, I thought it might be a bit sad not to have presents to open Christmas morning.
While sitting at a red light, I had a fabulous idea! We'll each get $5 to shop at our favorite thrift store. We have to find a present for each other there. How fun will that be? It'll force us to be creative and we'll totally surprise the other. Neither of us (nor our apartment) needs more stuff, so I think this will bring the fun back into Christmas for us adults.
What do you think? What are you giving your significant other for the holidays, especially if you are on a tight budget like we are?
I was not compensated for saying all the cool things about Clever Girls Collective and the companies they represent. However, I did win the amazing prize pack. I have yet to receive any of it, but did get to see a sample Little Passports kit at Blogalicious.
