    -crayons
    -5 wooden puzzles

    Let's see, without looking I'd have to say:
    garden tote with tools
    floating candle set
    5 or 6 jars of herbal foot soak
    several pencil cases
    address book
    several picture frames
    body lotion
    several beanie babies
    a couple of lockets
    several baby banks (this is my standard baby gift)
    a book on Billy Graham
    recipe cards

    I am kind of low right now. My wives group started a birthday basket and I filled it to start. Time to hit some clearence sales.

    1 Talking Ally or something doll (katies)
    about 10 bath/perfume sets

    Don't come here, heaven.
    I don't even have a CLOSET... let alone a gift closet! LOL

    You girls make me jealous. I haven't even thought of Christmas gifts yet. All I know is I am making Jar Mix Baskets... 1 for each household (family gift).

    I think I am going yard saling this weekend... my first time in ages. Hopefully I'll come up with some goodies.
