So far in the Sew Creative Countdown to Christmas I’ve shown you 19 days worth of great gift ideas for him, her, kids and foodies. Today is Day 20 of our Countdown to Christmas and there is only one thing left to do… wrap everything! Wrapping can be a daunting task, but make an event of it and wrapping can be fun and get you into the holiday spirit.
Let me set the stage for you. You tuck your kids into bed, kiss them goodnight and tiptoe out of their room. Meanwhile your spouse is downstairs lighting a fire and putting your favorite Christmas music on the stereo. As you walk down the stairs you notice the twinkle of Christmas lights, the crackle of the fire and your filled with Christmas spirit as you hear Bing Crosby croon White Christmas. Head into the kitchen, whip up these festive cocktails and settle down in front of the Christmas tree with your honey to wrap up all the Christmas presents.
