"Something they way, something they need, something to wear, something to read"
"Something they want" was a DVD player and screens for the van. I made 2 mock-up tv screens for them to pull down from the fire place and read to explain what they were getting. They also got 7 new Christmas movies that they could watch on our trip to/from Monroe for Christmas.
"Something they need" was a little personalized cash box for each of them to hold their money or any other little knick-knacks that they want to keep safe.
