Some of my close family members are despondent about not getting together for the holidays (COVID is really raging in our area) so I decided to try to soften the blow by giving them something to look forward to. I assembled a bunch of little gifts for each day from December 1 through December 24. Most of them are just standard stuff like tiny chocolate bars, packages of nuts, etc, but I did make a few items as well. Here’s a few of them:
Tiny (2.5” x 1.5”) jigsaw puzzles of their pets:
Snarky coasters (forgot to take photo before wrapping):
Tiny votive lamps:
Spirograph (this was the free design from Glowforge awhile back; didn’t have enough clear acrylic so I used some 1/16” two tone I got from BF Plastics):
Tiny happy faces to pass out with tips (made using the Trace function on Glowforge):
I also engraved their names on a few pencils.
I wrapped each gift in an inexpensive polka dot sack with a label showing the date to open:
Then wrapped the whole box in gift wrap with “2020 Advent Calendar for (name)” label.
