12 Days Challenge!

This year I'm starting a new tradition in our household! I've been wanting to do this for a long time now and this year I'm finally going to make it happen! I'm starting the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS for my husband! :)

So, as the song goes... he will be receiving 12 days of gifts, special treatment and acknowledgement! My hubby has been so sweet and good to me this year that I think it's only fair that he gets 12 days of royal treatment!

He has no clue that I'm doing this for him yet, so if he sees this post it might ruin the surprise! However, I had to take that risk because I thought this was too good of an idea not to share! :)

{My plan is to start Thursday, December 13th! 12 days before Christmas!}
With that said, I've put some ideas together that are affordable, simple and fun!

Day 1: An early Christmas gift is the first thing that comes to mind for me! This is probably going to be the most expensive gift out of the bunch! Any singular object will do! Think of something that he's been really wanting or asking for and make that wish come true!

Day 2: Think double! What are things that come in pairs? Movie tickets, socks, his & her mugs, two scoops of his favorite ice cream... the list goes on and on!

Day 3-6: Packages make the most sense! It seems like things always come in packs of 3, 4 and 6! My hubby is always in need of razors since he has to shave every day for work so that's a great thing that comes in a package of 6 for me to get him! You could also do packs of gum, candy, sporting items, drinks etc.

Day 7-12: Think mushy gushy! Mushy gushy= cheap! Yet, it still shows them how much you really care! Bake 7 cookies, lead him on a scavenger hunt with 8, 9 or 10 love notes with a surprise at the end or buy him a dozen of his favorite donuts!

If you don't have a lot of money to spend you can just show your hubby 12 days of kindness acts instead! Wash/clean his car, take out the trash or give him a massage!

This challenge for me is to show my husband just how special he is to me and to let him know how much I appreciate him each and every day! :)

I hope you guys liked all of my ideas! I'm new at this so I'm just throwing things out there! Please let me know if you guys might try this too!

  9. I did this last year and Twitch loved it so much- I'm planning to do it again this year! But in reverse. He said he would rather have the best present last so we are going to count down!
