Holiday Blogging Challenge Day 1
Rachel over at Parajunkee is hosting a 7 Day Holiday Blogging Challenge. Since the holidays can be hectic and we’re all pressed for time, here is an easy blogging challenge for the next week.
The first prompt is: A Gift You Are Giving
I have a habit of doing my Christmas shopping all through the year. Yes, I’m one of those people. I’m the person sitting at home, nice and comfy with a cup of hot chocolate, while the rest of the world is rushing around trying to buy presents in the cold. I don’t buy a lot. I have a couple of friends I’m close enough with to exchange presents and most years my family doesn’t bother to exchange presents with each other. So I don’t have a lot of people to find things for. No kids. Really no extended family.
But I like to do it anyway. This year I got my Dad a small Hillshire Farms sampler. Just the summer sausage, cheese, mustard, and crackers. Food goes over well with him. I got my brother’s girlfriend, Tina, some earrings and a box of hazelnut chocolates. As for my Brother himself? Dan is getting a Doctor Who Tardis mug and this…
My brother is a collector of things. This is a Dinky Supertoys Centurion Tank, produced in England by Meccano LTD during the 50’s and 60’s. It’s a tin toy.
It’s a little banged up and only has one wheel tread on it but this is the type of stuff Dan likes. He’ll get a kick out of having it. The gun turret moves around.
It’s a cute little toy. I always see the antique hunters and pickers on TV finding stuff like this and while this one is no grand prize, I think it will do nicely for a Christmas gift.
Merry Christmas, everybody!
