2012 Winter Wrap-Up #3: Festive Fun for Friends

I don’t know about you, but most of my friends are spread out all over the country, so we usually end up sending gift cards in order to avoid shipping costs.

But if you prefer to send an actual gift (or don’t have to worry about standing in line at the post office!), here are a few ideas!

I am kind of obsessed with someecards. Seriously. I know they’re occasionally dumb, but it’s like the lyrics of a song…sometimes they say exactly what I wish I could! SO…if you have a friend like me who can’t stop pinning or Facebooking these things – give them one for EVERY DAY OF 2013!!!! TF Publishing, who makes a ton of other awesome calendars by the way!), sells a 2013 Someecards Daily Desktop Calendar! All calendar pages are printed on FSC certified paper and use environmentally safe inks.

NOTE – If you know me personally, and are expecting a Christmas gift from me – you probably should not buy this for yourself…just sayin’!


I stumbled across Jen’s blog via a friend on Facebook. {Yes, it really is called PEOPLE I WANT TO PUNCH IN THE THROAT – how could that NOT be entertaining?!} The link took me to a post on Over Achieving Elf on the Shelf Mommies from last December. I. COULD. NOT. STOP. LAUGHING! {Oh, what is this “Elf on the Shelf” she’s talking about? Yeah, apparently everyone but me has one or two.} Now, in contrast, I do enjoy the Inappropriate Elf Contest that Jill @ Baby Rabies hosts…but I don’t have the time or creativity to do that myself, so I’m siding with Jen here.

The reason I bring this up in regards to gifts is because…Jen wrote a BOOK! Spending The Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat If her blog is any indication, this will be a best-seller! It’s on my wishlist right now…*hint hint*


Speaking of books – I have a great one for your mommy friends. Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us This one came up on my Amazon recommendations, which judging by the title, probably should have been a red flag…until I read the table of contents! How can I not read a book that discusses “How to Sleep Until 9 A.M. Every Weekend” and “When Seeing an Infant Triggers a Mental Illness That Makes You Want to Have Another Baby”, because I want both of these things right now, which makes no logical sense whatsoever! *Adds to wishlist*


If you plan on attending any holiday parties this year, perhaps you should celebrate with some drinking games! There’s no time for sipping wine or eggnog, folks. You’re on a schedule! You need to get the quickest buzz you can so you have time to sober up a little before you have to go home to the babysitter! (I may or may not be speaking from experience.) My personal favorite is beer pong, but there are all kinds of ideas! Remember Plinko from the TV show “The Price is Right”? Now you can play DRINKO!


You and your friends not really the drinking type? No problem! Board games make fun gifts to pass the time on those chilly nights. My friends and I love playing Apples to Apples, and this year, they have a new edition – SOUR APPLES TO APPLES
