Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Day 19 - Christmas Gifts

This series of blog posts has been inspired by Geneabloggers Advent Calendar to share memories for others in the future.

We always give gifts to our immediate family - parents, siblings and partners, nephews and nieces. We try to be creative if we can but that is always time consuming, so some years we do not have the time.

We also buy for some of our close friends and work colleagues but often something small and if we can creatively homemade, this year we I can't tell you yet its not quite Christmas!

We always have some nice Christmas wrapping paper but do not go all out with the ribbons, etc as it would take us hours to wrap all the presents. I prefer wrapping presents than buying bags for them though, as it is fun sitting with the Christmas music blasting whilst we wrap.

My husband and I have a stocking each which we both fill with lots of lovely small treats.

We tend to buy many presents from our family's Amazon wishlists, but they generally consist of books, DVDs, CDs, toys for the kids (and some of the bigger kids too!), mugs, candles, chocolate, pretty nicety's for the girls etc.
