Three Beautiful Ways to Gift

1. I like to be excited about the gifts I give people. This year I'm very excited about giving this to my son-in-law. He loves bacon (and food in general). I know, Bacon Jam? It sounds funky at first, but I think it's going to be good! Click here for recipe.
2. The other gift I worked on today, which I'm excited about, is a custom calendar for my mom. Shutterfly has a fun design site to create such projects. My mom will love to have photos of our family since she doesn't see us very often. She doesn't have a computer so we don't get to share all of our photos with her unless we print them.

3. My last bit of Christmas shopping arrives via UPS or USPS. I love the wishlists my kids create on Amazon's website.  Amazon allows you to add items from other websites, which will link directly from your list. The lists remain year-round, so they're handy for birthdays or other occasions, too. Just look for the 'wish list' tab to the right of the 'cart' tab. Click here for Amazon.


  1. Like yourself, Lee, I also like to get excited and my holiday joy comes from writing and sending holiday cards. As postage coasts rise and folks get busier, many forgo this tradition. But since we are not spending time shopping or buying gifts, I will make the time once again this year.

  2. My sister and her daughters love to do Shutterfly books. They went to New York City together a couple of years ago and the girls put together a Shutterfly book called, "The Morris Girls Take Manhattan." So neat.
