Can you believe that I am still wrapping a few last minute gifts?

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and last minute lovers:

I say this every year, that I am going to be done with my shopping and wrapping by Thanksgiving. I don’t know why, but every year I am wrapping something the morning of Christmas. So, I was sitting here with the Mayor and I thought……..

My dear readers might like this idea for giving money so let me make my wrapping experience even longer by blogging about it. LOL! Really, it is a cute idea that you might want to use next year.

OK – So here is the Mayor helping me. As you can see there is a medium sized Hershey Kiss on my desk. He was crying for it because he thought it was one of the cookies that Cindy gave him. At that point, I had to get up and go get him a half cookie. Emma got the other half. What the heck! It’s Christmas!


So, here is the next step. Make sure the kiss tab is straight.


Then take the bill that you are giving and fold it like a fan.


Then bend it in half and tape it to the back of the Kiss tab.


Then do a tissue paper wrap job with a bow.


Then fill the toe of a mini stocking with tiny kisses and stick this one at the top.


And there you have it! A fun way to give money that will wow the Christmas gatherers. All you need to do next is smile and grab a kiss.

I would like to know who doesn’t like kisses and money?

More gift ideas later (as in for next year)!….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    I love it! I’ll steal that idea next year for sure. I’m so glad they got a Christmas cookie!

    We just got home from the family Christmas and now we’re leaving to party with our friends. That is…after we feed the kids and give them some home made doggie Christmas Cookies. Oh how I LOVE Christmas Day!!!

    I put tiny kisses in the bottom of the sock for eating. This larger kiss is for eating over time. Or if you are one of my nephews, you can down it in about 10 minutes, prior to dinner! LOL

    I love chocolate smiles!

    I love this idea, I am definitely going to use it. Even though money is a great gift, it can be difficult making it look like a present.
