In preparation for Christmas, I made a mock of one of my favorite things as a child.... An advent calendar. Remember the days when they used to come with milk chocolates or little candies? You could easy count down the days till Christmas this way.
Well this year, I made a grown-up version for my boyfriend with awesome presents. I stole this idea from my mom! She found cute little paper boxes from Hobby Lobby that fold together. I put 12 of them together for the twelve days of Christmas! Inside I included Christmas-themed items like this ornament frame, candy shot glass, Pop rocks, & Reese's candy.
I also love this moustache sleeve for a water bottle or beer bottle. I know the boyfriend will love it! Below are all 12 of the presents--
Then, I added notecards in each box with quotes or sweet sayings. One of my favorites was, "You are the only fish in the sea for me."
Here's the finished product! I wrapped the inside of the box with wrapping paper & everything! What are some of your favorite ideas for presents this year for loved ones that are far away?
