My Advent Baskets (pics)
 
I did these last year for my mum, dad, OH, dd, ds, nan and uncle.

I wrapped 23 sweets and one bigger item (such as a bubble bath etc), then numbered them 1-24 (the 24th being the bigger item). Inside each one was a sweet and a note saying something different each day... for example "5 more sleeps!" or "i love you so much - merry christmas!"

Here are some pics - took me ages but they were so much appreciated it was definitely worth it! cheesy

So cute! My mom always did something like that for us. She didn't tie pretty bows or write notes though. But it was still nice. The gifts she bought were dollar tree gifts. Some days we'd get pencils and other days we'd get plastic jewelry or something. It was just fun to open something every day up until Christmas. I'm sure your family loved them.

Thanks for sharing the pics!

Thanks! I can't take the credit for any of the ideas of the things i've posted though - on another forum i use, we bounced ideas off each other for months last year and we all used them! cheesy
