The last couple of years my mom has done a "challenge" gift for the kids. She wraps a small gift up. But not just with wrapping paper. I think last year she used rubber bands..hundreds around a box. This year both kids had gifts wrapped in yarn and duct tape. It took them a good 10 minutes to open and another ten minutes to wind up all the yarn again. Maddison got a bottle of Bath and Body -body spray and Garrett got adult sauve shampoo-why? Garrett is "too old for kid shampoo and plus this shampoo just makes his hair feel sooo much softer and smoother". Think he watches too many commercials?
