Stocking stuffers on the cheep mostly at the dollar store that my kids look forward to every year and our parents did for us when I was younger new toothbrushes and toothpaste chap stick hair brushes and combs hair ties and head bands body wash new mittens or gloves with matching hats and scarves gum and a candy cane body spray and lotion keychains hand sanitizer nail polish and manicure sets earbuds and batteries gift cards for gas McDonald's or subway for $10

Under the tree 1 stuffed animal or a doll for those under age 10 Wallets or purses with a $5 bill tennis shoes or dress shoes 2 shirts each and a pair of pants so they have a new outfit when they go back to work or school maybe a new dress or skirt or tie for those that like them pjs are a must slippers and robes are always an option my mother still gives me and my sisters shampoo conditioner and hair spray my brother gets shaving cream body wash and aftershave so maybe I'll do that again this Christmas who knows books are great at any age every year I get each of our children at least one and pre-stamped and addressed stationary is a great gift for those away at college or live away from home a case of pop or beer or a bottle of wine wrapped up was always interesting but nice to have for the holidays

Family gifts these are/were big ticket items dishwasher stove fridge freezer snowblower lawnmower a new TV or DVD player (VCR or microwave when I was growing up )today it might be a Wii or a new computer

ever since I can remember my mother received a new kitchen gadget or gadgets ( usually one that went out or she didn't have anymore ) these included toaster coffee maker mixer crockpot roaster new pans dishes silverware oven mits knives and other cooking utensils sometimes new hair rollers or a perm box or hair dye curling iron my favorite is Pyrex glass ware moms was Tupperware
dad always received fix it things these included drills axes chain saws tools flashlights camping gear fishing gear or hunting gear wenches ramps jacks tool belts boxes of nails screws and bolts windshield wipers jugs of oil and antifreeze or washer fluid these were always things we needed or could use practical gifts are always nice to give and to receive

Thankfully there were no debacles on Thanksgiving. I'm truly thankful for that :)

Being from Germany I've had an "Adventskalender"since I was little. My mom made the green felt tree on burlap one year a long time ago and now I'm doing the same for my kids. For a few years I made one for my husband as well, it was a hanging branch one.
For me it would not be Christmastime without them...and the Adventwreath with four candles on the table.

I enjoyed going to the website and looking at the rooms all naked and bare bones. What a stunning house. http://academymansionnyc.com/

Jpp221 I don't think "most" people do that. I certainly don't. That is a waste of time and movement no matter how close the stove is to the sink.
