    Last minute Xmas pressie ideas for DH

    I'm a terrible wife...I still haven't got anything for DH for Xmas.... Having a baby sort of over shadows everything else... And yes, he got another daughter, but I need to have something for him to open...
    So please spam me with last minute ideas!!

    If he likes sentimental things and you have time (with a newborn and a toddler, ha!) I saw an idea where you get a jar and little note pad, and you write 365 little love notes in there. This one was on three different colours, and one had things he loved about his wife, another had memories or moments, and the last had quotes or song lyrics. The idea was that every day for the next year his wife would pick a note and would have a good start to the day. I was thinking about it for my DH because he has a tendency to be negative and I liked the idea of him starting his day positively.

    Last year, with a newborn and a toddler, I got them both in nappies only, put them on a big white blanket and took some photos of them.
    I printed the best 3 in black & white and put them in a frame for him.

    How did you go TT40?

    I should add that I have a toddler and nine month 'newborn' and I managed to order a Christmas gift for DH but not in time for Christmas. And I haven't even sorted his anniversary present from November 😳
