Since the twins are here now hubby and I are trying to do more cooking at home and we’re even thinking about doing some holiday entertaining. Most of our family lives out of town so getting everyone together in the same place at the same time can be kind of tricky.. but we’re hoping for a pretty good turnout this Thanksgiving.
Now, I’ve never cooked a turkey on my own or a large traditional family meal for that matter, so right off the bat I’m thinking this might be an interesting task.. I might fail, but hopefully things go well and no one gets sick!
Since most of the family lives out of town and we’re not able to get together for each major holiday, we were thinking of giving the family their gifts so they can take them back home with them and put them under the tree when it’s time. The gifts would be wrapped already of course and it would definitely work.. as long as no one got nosy!
One of family members is really big into Star Bucks Coffee.. so we figured we would get him a nice little Start Bucks care package, including Starbucks Mugs. Shop.com has some pretty affordable ones and they have a cute little gift package which includes Star Bucks coffee for less than $18.. so this might be the way we go. There’s also a gift basket for around $35 that they might like as well.
I like Shop.com, we usually find some pretty good deals there.. last year we bought a great priced dinnerware set that I loved. We got a pretty good deal on the set so hubby was happy too! This year, I’m going for the Paula Deen Dinnerware set!
