Have you ever done the 12 days of Christmas?

I am thinking about doing instead of the big gifts at Christmas for some family and friends. My sis does this for an elderly couple near her and now they look forward to it every year. Wrapping little gifts, one for each of the 12 days for them to open daily. Has anyone ever did this and what are some ideas for gifts. Thanks!

  • This is a great idea... I would like to do it as a "12 days of donations" instead. Like each day, instead of getting gifts, find a way to give items away or do services to others. Thanks for sparking that idea!
