An adults' advent calendar - an easy make-ahead for Christmas!
An easy gift to make ahead
You will need:
24 small envelopes (I bought a pack of 50 wages envelopes for £1)
Some scraps of paper
String - I'm using red and white string
A hole punch
I think one of the best gifts you can give is positivity to another person.
So this year I have made two of these advent-y calendars for friends.
1. Write numbers 1-24 on your envelopes, and punch a hole at the top of them.
2. Write out 24 messages your recipient could do with on a low day ( see ideas below), 24 daft jokes, 24 memories you have together...or what you think would bring a smile to their face.
3. Gather a few bits and bobs as well - I've put a nice sweetie in a few, a herbal teabag in a few and a face mask in two.
4. Tie each up with some red and white string, then thread onto one long length - so it can be displayed like bunting - then gather up and pop in a reused box to be opened on December 1st!
(N.B. if you make one with chocolates in, remember to tell the recipient not to display over a radiator..)
