My husband and I started a tradition of ornaments in stockings for each other but they have to be hand made. One year I made him a guitar (because he loves playing the guitar) I made it with construction paper and spaghetti and beans. It turned out really neat. That same year for mine he made me a Christmas wreath out of wire and construction paper. The neat thing was each piece of wreath or strand he cut individually and it took him all not to make a full wreath. If I get a chance I will have to take a picture and show you guys. It has aged and discolored a bit through the years but it still is very special to me. Thanks for letting me share :)

I had a $50 gift card from purchasing a winter coat from sportschek I used that for a Burton tshirt and rolled it up and tied it with a raffia ribbon. Also got his favourite socks and took a few out and tied those with raffia ribbon, the rest Ill sneak in his sock drawer xmas morning
Lindor hazelnut bar $2
1 3pk of ferrero rocher and 1 3pk of lindor 99cents each
I did get hot chocolate, but bought the tin (more for the money) and it was too big, so I wrote a note saying "merry christmas love you" and he got it at home
I managed to pack them in those sock monkey type socks (grey with red heels) to make it old fashioned
he's getting a gerber multi tool/ pocket knife for xmas
Anyone getting the babies to make something homemade for daddy? Any ideas?

I love those fingerprint necklaces I've been seeing online. They are made with precious metal clay which is expensive and requires firing in a kiln but we made some with polymer clay (skulpey) which can be baked in the oven. You could make a disk of polymer clay, put your child's fingerprint in it and write (I like to use rubber stamp letters) initials or a name. It could make a nice key chain thingy.
