12 Days Gift Examples
Day 11 says, “Enjoy this 11th day of Christmas. The fire snaps, crackles, and pops on top, Like the Rice Crispy commercial Snack, Crackle, Pop.” You can wrap up a gift of store-bought rice crispy treats or make a plate of homemade.
You can deliver a gift each day, or put them all together in one giant gift bag and instruct the recipient to open one each day.
It’s the Thought The Counts
Yes, these are pretty practical and useful gifts, but more than the gift part, the thought behind this Sweet and Simple 12 Days of Christmas means more than that.
We’ve given this to widows, or most recently, a dear family whose mom has recently been diagnosed with cancer. My heart aches for them, as my own mother passed away from cancer when I was 15. We were the recipients of such thoughtfulness that first Christmas.
So spreading some cheer and letting people know there is someone thinking about them can mean a lot!
