Regift Christmas

Posted on: October 20, 2009

Yes, yes, I know Christmas isn’t for another 66 days. My Christmas lights aren’t up yet, promise*.

Every year, without fail, I never know what to get Jonathan. Last night I asked him what he wanted. He had no clue.

And that’s when it happened.

My genius of a husband came up with a spectacular idea.

Regift Christmas.

Here’s the idea:

We have to regift items the other person hasn’t used in the last year, or hasn’t used as it was originally intended.

Honestly, I’ve no clue what I’m going to regift Jonathan, but I’ve got a garage and closet full of things I’m certain he hasn’t used that will be pretty sweet to regift.

I’m really looking forward to Regift Christmas and what I re-get! 😉

*Last night, while discussing our regift idea, I told Jonathan I was planning to put up the Christmas tree on Sunday, November 15th. His response, “Why so late?”. And that, my dear friends, is why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my husband.

For those curious minds, the tree is going up November 6th. Oh yeah.

It stinks when we have a late Thanksgiving though!

sweet! we just finalized nov 1 around here for our tree! 🙂

You are a woman after my own heart! My mom, growing up, LOVED Christmas. She always put the tree up by my birthday (in early November). I’ve tried to get mine up as early (though I’m not sure my husband totally shares my enthusiasm). Last year on my birthday, my sister and another dear friend put a Christmas wreath on my front door as my present. Aren’t they wonderful?!

[…] If you’ve ever gotten to talk to me for very long {especially after October 1st}, you might know that I am a little obsessed with Christmas. So, when Southern Living sent me an […]
