For the great aunts (most of them got the same gift) he opted for a shower puff; the reasoning, “my aunts all smell nice and ladies are always telling me to bathe so they’ll love it”.
Tarzan got a puzzle, and a slinky, “so he’ll stop playing with mine”.
I got chapstick in HIS favorite flavor, some toenail polish (he does know me) and some reindeer socks.
For his Granny he bought her a new spatula “to help her make Mac and cheese”. For the great uncle who plays in a band, he bought a Penguins of Madagascar calendar so, “he’ll remember all his gigs”. For the great uncle who has everything, popcorn bowls since “popcorn is diabetic, right Momma?!” For his uncle Ty he got a ’Lemonheads’ filled ornament because “it’s his favorite candy, duh.” For his Nana a small spatula, which broke Cheetah said, “that’s ok she doesn’t really like to cook”. For his Papaw he got him some coffee, “because he has to wake up early and fix breakfasts”.
But my favorite was a pair of candy cane antlers with bows, “Uncle Jackie LOVES bows” (bow HUNTING that is).
