So since DH's family lives 700 and some miles away I got the bulk of my Christmas shopping done early and we brought the Christmas gifts with us when we went to visit late August. We hid all the gifts at DH's best friend's house and she will distribute them to DH's family in December. Except for one ... I had bought my MIL a new winter jacket as I knew she needed one. She's a huge Duck Dynasty fan so I bought her a camo winter jacket. DH wanted to make sure it fit properly and what not so we gave it to her back in August. She loved it. But now that the weather is colder she started wearing it on a daily basis and it is just a joy to hear her... she calls the house 2-3 times a week and every week she just raves about the coat. It's awesome. She says she's getting so many compliments about the coat, how warm it is, how much she loves it and she keeps finding more bells and whistles on it (Ultimately it's a hunting/outdoors man jacket so yes it's full of different compartments and pockets and whatnot. ) you know, it's really nice when you know you've hit the bullseye and the person is just so thankfull. Just for her enthousiasm, I think I might throw in some extras like actually buy her a damn Duck Dynasty hat and mail it to her for Christmas.
