Since I was a little kid, my Grandma has done table gifts for our Christmas Dinner. We would have all the excitement of Christmas with yummy snacks, present opening and then when we sat down for dinner, before we would eat we would get one last gift. With the next generation coming into the world, we buy less and less for each other as adults, so our table gifts have become even more special.

In recent years I have started to help GG buy the table gifts, so I have become an expert at finding locally made gifts for under $30. Now of course I can't share what I bought for everyone this year, I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I can share what I bought for everyone last year.
