Silly Christmas Gifts Are Silly

Every year for as long as I can remember my mom had a weekly lunch with an incredibly strong and funny group of women. From this weekly tradition came the holiday tradition of 'The Ladies who Lunch Brunch." As a kid it was this magical time when mom would be gone for several hours one Sunday only to come back with wonderfully fun and creative gifts. When my mom got sick and eventually passed away this group of amazing ladies invited me to take part in this magical tradition.

Each year someone hosts the brunch and comes up with a theme of some sorts. Though they say the gifts don't have to correlate with the theme we always seem to make it happen, even if you are cursing under your breathe as you walk down the aisle of a target trying to find something that works. For me, this year the cursing was greater than usual. Will and I made it back to Arizona from West Virginia only two days prior to the brunch, and the month leading up to our departure was filled with a crazy stupid amount of roto work. Driving the hour + distance from our mountain to the closest store just wasn't in the cards, either. Therefore, pretty much the day before the brunch I was at Target trying desperately to find something music related that wouldn't just be a waste of money or something these ladies would have no use for. I was getting ready to just give up and leave with some wonderfully scented candles for everyone when I saw an adorable nativity set and Will had a stroke of genius. He suggested that I make little instruments for each of the characters and place them on each candle. Haha!

I am so happy with how these little guys turned out and they seemed to be a pretty big hit with all the ladies, so double yay! What was your favorite silly gift to make or give away?

  2. These are SO adorable! And what a great idea! I don't know about silly, but currently my favorite thing to make and give away has been finger-knitted hats. I've made one for each of my nieces and nephews, and they're so cute!
