Gift of Meaning....12 days of Christmas for your hubby

 I am pretty excited about this gift.  Who wouldn't love 12 gifts before Christmas?!?!  Well my hubby is so deserving so for his Gift of Meaning this year this is what I have decided to do....12 days of little meaningful items. 
Things he uses and things he eats. 
I am going to drop these off to him at work everyday for 12 days.....just to make it more meaningful for him.
I went right along with the song.  I didn't make it to different.  I wrapped up the items as man-ly as I could using brown paper bags and twine.  I used the numbers from here and made a card and tied them onto each bag.  Inside the card is the words of the song for that day.
Here are some of the items I have ready....
Here is the list of all the items I am doing for each day:
(I will buy the milk and fries on the day of)
DAY 1-can of pears
2-turtle candy bar
3-French Fries
4-Notepad
5-bag of Funyuns
6-Egg Nog
7-body wash
8-Chocolate milk
9-socks
10-Jerky sticks (for ten "jerks" a leaping
11-hair gel (for eleven pipers "primping"
12-Peanuts (jar looks like a drum)

I am so excited to start giving these away this week :)
