I can’t believe I have time to post.
Today, I am thankful for the holidays. Christmas and Thanksgiving are my favorite time of year, despite the ridiculous stress that comes with traveling, having two kids, shopping, cooking, shopping. It’s my favorite time of year because I am able to spend it with family.
I also thoroughly enjoy finding the perfect gift for family members. I will be honest though, I am horrible gift giver. I have a friend from college, I swear she was graced by God with the most amazing ability of giving the most touching and amazing gifts. Every single gift she’s given me has been exactly what I needed when I didn’t even know I needed it.
She gave me touch-screen enabled gloves, which are fantastic and also glittery 🙂 adding an adorable charm. She gave me a baby scrapbook for my baby’s birth. She gave me a tablet/e-reader stand, which is AWESOME! Especially in the kitchen. You can put your tablet/e-reader on the stand and read while you’re cooking, or eating, or look at recipes etc. It even adjusts in size to fit my phone.
Ok – back to the reason I wanted to post today.
Friends, followers, family members, anyone who follows me on facebook and wordpress. I need your assistance!! Because I am such a terrible gift giving person….
In my first book, Second Chances, Lacey spends Christmas with Jay because she refuses to spend it with her mom. Joel spends Christmas with their mother. But they are brother and sister. Very tight, very close. They live together currently.
What kinds of gifts should they give each other for Christmas? I would greatly appreciate any ideas. Let me give you a rundown of their characters.
Joel: 25 years old. 6ft tall. He works as a personal banker. He loves cooking, history docs, all guy movies in general, and he’s somewhat introverted. He’s very active in his college group at church.
Lacey: 21 years old. 5’10. Loves theater, is outgoing, loves to be active (biking for example). Loves girly movies, as well as action movies. Loves to read, and loves her phone and laptop. She loves coffee. She works in a coffee shop. She’s also a full time college student.
What kind of gifts would you give them and why? Feel free to ask more questions 🙂
Followers, friends, family, I hope you have fun with this.
