Hello and happy Friday, friends! It's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, and we'd love for you to join us! My amazing co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.
1. I have a tough time choosing a gift for _________.
(My dad is one of the main reasons why, in our family, we each create a little wish list leading up to Christmas. Since my dad's tastes and hobbies are very picky and particular, just like him, without that list, I would have no idea what gifts he'd most like, or what he hadn't already bought for himself throughout the year.)
(Silly answer, but it is what it is. My sister and I grew up when the Harry Potter books were coming out, and we enjoyed reading them and watching the movies throughout our childhood. Now adults, we're both admittedly still nostalgic fans of the series, and pretty much every year, one of my Christmas gifts to my sister is a box I fill with wacky little Harry Potter items that I usually find on Etsy. I always have a lot of fun with this, and I think my sister does as well.)
In a previous tip, we mentioned being cautious with ribbon usage on gifts this time of year, due to the potential hazards they pose. Along this same line of thought, also be careful with gift wrapping tools. For example, scissors and tape can also pose risks. Scissors can obviously cause injury if left open and unattended, and tape can potentially cause blockages if consumed. This time of year many of us are focused on the fun and festivities, but also be sure that you take into account all surroundings and how they might affect the furbabies in your life.
