It’s my favorite time of year.
The time when I get to pick out presents for my loved ones and show them how much they mean to me.
This year, I’m focusing on my nephews – or The Littles as I call them.
Because my brother and I each had two sets of boys.
Mine are the BIG boys and his are the LITTLE boys.
Hence, The Littles.
It’s an easy way to distinguish between them when we’re discussing “the boys.”
This year, for Christmas I purchased two sets of white cotton pajamas.
Boring, plain old cotton pajamas.
Then I got a tie dye set from Amazon so that The Little can MAKE THEIR OWN PJS!
They love tie dye and I think they’ll enjoy working with all the colors to make something unique and handmade.
Every year, I always get them a personalized ornament with their names and the year and THEIR HALLOWEEN COSTUME.
My oldest nephew was the grim reaper:
My youngest nephew was a zombie from Minecraft:
It’s not easy finding their costume every year on an ornament.
Last year, my youngest nephew was Venom.
I had to commission a Venom ornament from etsy to complete his gift.
This year, I’m also getting something different – a ten inch “layer cake” of white fabric and fabric pens.
I noticed that both boys are really artistic and I thought wouldn’t it make a great gift for their mom (my best friend from 5th grade – yes, my brother married my best friend) to have them design fabric squares over the next few months that I can then make into a quilt for her?
I sure am crafty when it comes to presents and I hope The Littles enjoy what they get.
