Tuesday Thingers: Holiday Gift-Giving
Do you give books for the holidays? Did you participate in LT's SantaThing, either this year or last, or in other blogging gift exchanges? Were you happy with what you received?
This will be the last Tuesday Thingers hosted by Marie at The Boston Bibliophile. Wendi at Wendi's Book Corner will be taking over next week. Thanks, Marie, for strengthening the bonds of the LT blogging community. Thanks as well to Wendi for keeping this alive!
I love giving books as gifts, and they're my absolute favorite gift for children. I loved getting books as a kid and still have many books from my childhood Christmases.
This was my first year participating in SantaThing. I had a lot of fun looking through different libraries and offering suggestions. I'm not sure if I knew about it last year or not, but if I did, I didn't participate.
My SantaThing gift arrived yesterday, but I'm not opening it until tomorrow. It's a long-standing tradition in our house that no gifts are opened until Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve, you can open one gift. I'm dying to know who my Secret Santa was, and, of course, what's in that cute little Amazon box...
