OK on to #2

2 - tell me the best gift you have given for Christmas
I think the best gift I have ever given is the one I am giving this year...
I am safe because my grandparents do not read this...
I know what gives
BUT I forgive
and because they don't read this I can share RIGHT????
OK a little back story... MeMo and G-Pa (that's what Drew calls them)
go to Costco ONCE a week
for a date and
to share the $1.50 hotdog and coke special
SO today I bought 24 gift cards for
a whopping cost of $1.62 EACH ($1.50 plus the 12 cents for tax)
YEP 24 - $1.62 gift cards
which means we will
TREAT them twice a month to their
date day ~ dog and drink
I am going to put each gift card with a note from
me or Drew in its own envelope
and
SEAL UP the envelope
and DATE the envelopes
like week of December 11th and probably add a little doodle
I am so so so so excited about this gift
now the lady at Costco
was probably NOT so happy
to have to override 24 gift cards for $1.62
BUT I know my grandparents will LOVE this gift
PLUS what else do you give 80 year old high school sweethearts???

3 - plan an act of random kindness this week (tell me your plan)and pinky swear to follow through with it!!!

One of the RaNdOm things I like to do is to pay for the person behind me at a drive through...
now I do have some limits
SO I do giraffe neck to make sure they don't have like 500 kids
and I do ask the teenager running the register how much the car behind ordered (cost wise not itemized)
and if it is under like let's say $20
I DO IT!!!
NOW I realize $20 might be a lot BUT I have rarely paid over $15
and really
I know I make the person behind me happy
BUT I also give a good lesson to the teenager running the drive through
PLUS I SMILE all the way home!!!!
so I pinky swear to pay for the car behind me at a drive through sometime this week
OK there you have it... if you have a problem with pinky swearing I DO accept Pinky PROMISES too!!!

okie dokie that is it
and remember on DAY 13 I will post ALL 12 winners!!!

on Day 13
I will post the winners...
BUT it might be a little later than earlier
BECAUSE
I have a Christmas Party
BUT I will post the winners some time on DAY 13!!!!

alrighty there you have it!!!!
go enter!!!

  15. My random act of kindness...hmmmm....my daughter goes to an AMAZING daycare and I'm always impressed with how much the teachers (from infant to school-age) love and care for her - and all the other children. I want to leave a morning surpise in their little teacher lounge to THANK THEM for all they do. Maybe bagels, muffins, juice, etc.... They are the best!!!!
    (Thank you for making this a requirement to post, it made me really think through the spirit of Christmas a little more than I would have!)

  22. The best gift I've ever given was to my mother, I got all the grandkids together (8 of them 13-3) and had pictures taken! They wore matching outfits and all! Don't know how I managed to pull of one pic of all of them smiling, and surprise my mom when all of them knew but it was a wonderful gift. Since then it's a tradition to get the photo with my mom in it each year!

  25. Best gift I have ever given by far is the year my whole family (parents included) adopted one of my school kids for Christmas. They had no ideas it was going to happen. We bought fabulous presents like XBoxes and stereos. Then we rented a real deal Santa suit - red velvet and everything. My brother dressed up, put all the gifts in Santa's bag, and then we walked through snow and hid behind a tree while he delivered them on Christmas Eve. My student was NEVER, EVER the wiser and hopefully that Christmas Miracle will live in his heart forever! I am sitting here crying as I type this and it has been at least seven years since we gave this greatest gift of all!

  26. My random act of kindness this week is to make all the delicious Christmas concoctions and go "Elf" all the neighbors. My hubster and I are pretty reserved and the neighbors don't exactly love us so we thought it would be a nice gesture to "Elf" them all :)

  36. It is really hard to pick a BEST gift, because some people are just really awesome gift givers. However, the best gift I ever received was a gift card to the Hotel Hershey Spa in Hershey PA. Um, can you say chocolate massage?

    ReplyDelete
  37. At the risk of seeming *slightly* redneck (I DO live in Alabama, afterall)...I think the best gift I ever gave was a driving experience at Talladega Motor Speedway. I gave it to my husband - but instead of just giving it to him, I created this extravagant scavenger hunt and he had to go on a wild goose chase to find it. He loved it and had a blast when we finally went in the Springtime. He loves watching those silly NASCAR races, so I thought what better to give him than a chance to ride in a car around the famous track at 120+MPH with a real live racecar driver. =)

  39. Random acts of kindness, how fun!
    My faculty absolutely loves treats. And who doesn't? I am going to bake some yummy cookies and leave them in the faculty room this week.

  40. The best gift I have ever given will actually be this year! My mom and I are OBSESSED with boots and there is a lady at our school who can get Ugg boots at a cheaper cost. Every year we usually order from her but this year my mom decided it would be too much money and she wasn't going to get herself any...so I ordered them for her!! I tricked her too and acted like I was ordering them for myself (which, of course I got myself a pair too!) and kept asking her things like "well what color should I get?" and "What style would you get?" So I tricked her into telling me which kind she wanted and I got them for her!! :)
    She has done so much for me in my life and I am so glad I now have a steady job and enough money to give back to her! I can't wait to see her face when she opens them!!

  41. I do random acts of kindness at least once a week. The gas stations in our town have what they call "Polar Pops", which is really just a fancy word for fountain coke. Anyways we love them here at our school and I try to bring one to my principal every Friday and on special occasions! I also bring my partner teacher candy all the time. You can definitely bet I will be doing that this week! PINKY SWEAR! :)

  45. The best Christmas gift I've ever given was a scrapbook calendar of my daughter for my mom as her first Christmas as a grandma. She loved it and it was was fun to put it into a scrapbook for her last year...after sneaking it out of her house. Of course, I guess I could include that the year before I gave her an album with a message with my daughter's date of birth...I needed to schedule a c-section, and didn't find out the date until 12/23, so I kept it a secret until Christmas.

    One of the best gifts I have gotten for Christmas was a scrapbooked picture of all of the motivational quotes I have given my girls soccer team during our season. It was so thoughtful... it's hanging in my office. They are the BEST team ever!

  127. The best gift I have given is to a little girl in my Kinder class a few years ago. All she asked for from Santa was a pair of slippers. Her parents did not have much money, so I went to Wal Mart and bought them and gave them to her mother.

  138. After hearing about your awesome gift I'm thinking I have some work to do... I think the best gift I've gotten is the Apple TV and Netflix subscription I got my parents last year. They were getting rid of their satellite to save money. They have loved having the Apple TV!! I was so happy to have bought a practical gift that they get constant use out of!

  140. I love the idea of promising to do a Random Act of Kindness! I'm totally in! c: I try to do kind things everyday to help people out, but I've always wanted to pay for someone's meal. I think the next time I go to an restaurant I'll pay for someone's meal (cross that one off my bucket list!)!

  144. The best gift I have every given was something which required planning and lots of love. My Mother-In-Law was in a nursing home and my husband and I surprised her by picking her up and taking her to spend the day with the rest of her family. She was beyond excited (as were we!)

  151. Awww, your Costco gift is the best. Hmmm, the best gift I've ever given? Sounds silly, but my Aunt who lives in Florida never gets to see her nieces nephews/grand nieces, nephews...she isn't on facebook or anything and often feels "forgotten" I had our whole huge family (it's big) send me pictures and I put them all on a digital frame. Took hours...SHE LOVED it.

  165. I just figured out how to "follow you" although I am not sure what that means. Maybe that I am no longer a secret stalker?! Ok my random act this week I am delivering gifts in from my bible study group to a needy family at my school. But I really LOVE the pay in the drive thru idea & may do that also.
    The best gift I ever gave...was a tie! 2 years ago I got to tell my son I was pregnant with his sister on Christmas Eve. I also took my husbands vhs tapes of college football & had them put on DVD! He still loves that DVD years later! Thanks so much for sharing! I hope to one day be a blogger!

  166. The best gift I have ever given was the year after my grandparents had both passed. I took a picture I had of them,some of our grandma's favorite recipes, and a poem I'd found my grandma had kept for years, I made copies of them all, had them matted and framed, and gave them to my mom, brothers, and uncle.

  167. I've already done a few RAK's I paid for lunch for the car behind me, gave a Sonic hop a 5$ tip, and last night I went to my school and put bags of goodies on every teachers desk (small school). Next is to buy a gift card for a family at our school that is having a hard time.
