12 Days of Christmas: Update on Blessing My Husband

Update: I'm already planning our 12 Days of Christmas for 2012. Be sure to subscribe to free blog updates so you won't miss a thing.

Tomorrow starts our 12 Days of Christmas for my husband, Tim. I know that the actual 12 days of Christmas begin on Christmas Day, but ours will run from December 13th through Christmas Eve.

Tim's been working really hard lately and I know taking time to bless him over the next 12 days will help him push through to our much anticipated family vacation. 

I also typed up these little bitty cards to write the gifts on. They're available here if you'd like a copy. (They're about 2 1/2 inches square.)
I've had to rethink some of our days, but right now this is what my schedule looks like:

Day 1: one water bottle ~ I found a large Sigg stainless steal water bottle in the Target overstock section of our Goodwill for only $3. I also took an evening to crochet this water bottle cover. I thought the cover would keep it from getting dented in case it was dropped. It also might help with condensation when it gets warm again. What do you think? Is it too much? This will be wrapped and waiting for him on the front seat of his truck.

Day 2: two things to keep you warm ~ (I was planning on a candlelit dinner for two, but my parent's aren't available to watch the kids.) I found a brand new looking Cabela jacket at Goodwill. I added a new knit hat to get the two items. These will be placed in a gift bag and hung in the coat closet

Day 3: three ironed polos ~ Tim normally irons for himself, but I'm going to iron three polos for work and have them waiting on the ironing board.

Day 4: four tiny hand prints ~ The kids and I made this wall hanging for Tim. It'll be wrapped and placed on his plate at breakfast.

Day 5: five brand new blades ~ I pulled a new 5 blade razor from my CVS stash. We'll wrap it and place it on the bathroom counter.

Day 6: six white chocolate "cocoa" mixes ~ Tim can't eat chocolate, but he loves warm white chocolate drinks. I bought six individual packs at the grocery store. These will be placed in a mug and given to him after dinner.

Day 7: seven e-cards ~ This is also Tim's birthday, so the e-cards will be a mixture of Happy Birthday, Thinking Of You, Love cards, etc.

Day 8: eight white chocolate dipped pretzel rods ~ Wrapped in a Christmas treat bag and delivered to work.

Day 9: nine candy cane Kisses ~ We'll be on the road this day, so the Kisses will be packaged in a Christmas treat bag and placed on his seat during one of our gas stops.

Day 10: ten peanut butter cookies ~ Packaged in a Ziploc for traveling and placed beneath the cabin Christmas tree when we arrive.

Day 11: eleven back massages ~ I made these cute little coupons to place in an envelope and lay on top of his pajamas.
Day 12: twelve things I love about you ~ I'm still working on this list, but I know I'm going to make a standard paper sized copy as well as a wallet sized copy.

The 13th is my husband's birthday and he always feels a little jipped. So this is so incredibly perfect to spend time and show him daily how much I adore him without spending a million dollars. Thanks!!!
