My grandma passed away in October and I got her recipe box with hundreds of recipes (she was an incredible cook and taught all of us grandkids to love cooking too). Over the last couple months I have been typing up all of the recipes and designing a book with them, including pictures of my grandma and the grandkids cooking. I got the books printed through Blurb and I am giving them to my mom and sisters for Christmas. I absolutely cannot wait to give them their books! I will probably make my mom open it immediately when she gets to town on the 22nd!

we bought my mom a coach bag! she has an obsession with handbags but has never owned a nice one so my brothers, sisters and I threw in an got her one. we got an AMAZING deal! we were at the outlet and the bags were 50% off the orginal price and then an additional 30% off that price. We got a $350 bag for about $140.00. we got her a little wallet to match as well.

I am super excited to give DH these two books that he wanted so badly. The bookstore was sold out so he isn’t expecting them but I ordered them online;)
I am also excited to give my grandma her gift, a giftcard for Facebook credits! She loves playing all those games on Facebook so I thought it was a super creative idea. She won’t even see it coming!

I’m excited to give DH his electric razor! He really wants one and I pretty much convinced him it wasn’t going to happen so he will be very surprised 😉

I’m really excited to give Fiance a pair of polarized oakley sunglasses. He’s been complaining about his old scratched up pair and talking about this new pair he wants so I think he’ll be really shocked! 🙂

My mom and I went in together and got my sister a kitchenaid mixer! She has commented a few times that it was the only gift from her registry that she didn’t get (her wedding was almost 5 years ago!) I think she is going to be shocked and so very excited at the same time! She curently has borrowed mine to do her Christmas baking, little does she know hers is already wrapped at my house just waiting to make the journey over to her house!

Im most excited to give DH his presents. I bought him a new wedding band since he lost his earlier this year! It came in yesterday and is even better than I had imagined it to be. I even had it engraved on the inside 😀
Hes also getting a new pair of hunting boots hes been fawning over and a Stanley Thermos with his fave bag of coffee (too much for a bag of coffee lmao) and a new xbox controller. Just some random stuff he wants and can actually use alot!
We didnt buy alot of gifts for family this year. We had originally decided not to buy anything but DH caved in and decided we needed to get everyone ONE small gift. (we are still doing our charities thing) Im excited to give my sister in law these awful ugly pair of bright santa red knockoff ugg boots shes been DYING to have. She saw them a few weeks ago when we were christmas shopping and hasnt shut up about them since hahaha. I cant wait to see her face when she opens them up! shes gonna LOVE it!

I brought my oldest brother back some Guiness fudge from the UK and I’m stoked to give it to him. He loves Guiness and I know he will be excited to chow down on it.
Proof that the best gifts don’t have to be expensive. 🙂

I have so many, haha, I can’t just choose one.
I already gave my friend the hideous sparkly pink and gold dinosaur ornament I found for her collection of kooky ornaments, and her reaction was AMAZING.
Probably the biggest I’m excited for is my FI’s Wii — he still thinks I didn’t get it, and he’s gonna be so shocked 😀
