Hi all,
The gift I was going to do for my DH has fallen through, and I realize this is last minute, but does anyone have any ideas for something I could make/do for him in these last hours before Christmas morning?

I almost always do the photo frame/collage thing with pics of our precious children, so I'd prefer a new idea. It can involve a picture of the kids, just that I'd like to do something different than the standard frame or collage. Any ideas for this last minute Nellie over here??

It can be make or buy. Thank you!

Our 5th anniversary was 12/20 w/the traditional gift being wood. I used a woodburning tool (bought at Hobby Lobby for under $10 w/a coupon) and burned "I still choose you." into the picture frame. It was a little tricky but he loved it. You could make a plaque, trace the kids' hands w/a pencil, and then burn it w/the tool. The possibilities are endless, and the gifts are pretty cool.

We are a family of Jesus loving urban-nesters living the granola life in a not-so-crunchy city.  Our kids (DS 8, DS 7, DD 4) are home birthed and educated, and we just found out that a new Little will be added to our roost mid-April '14!

I'm knitting my partner a scarf and rolling a gift certificate for a massage in the center of it. Gift and packaging all in one! I'll tie the scarf roll with a ribbon or a cord or something. :
