‘Tis the season for holiday shopping, and just what do you give those who have “it” all and also money? Check out, Wacky Gifts for the Holidays for some great ideas, including a personal hovercraft. I WANT ONE!

Yes, folks, these are Decoy Gift Boxes for products no one probably makes, but I bet you will see for sale, next year.
OR, you could do what my mother did every year for most of our lives!!!!
She gave gifts in Kotex boxes. Yup! Those highly decorated boxes held everything from toys to underwear. If it did not come in a box, and she could cram it in a Kotex box, that’s what you unwrapped.
We started taking bets as to who would get the Kotex box this year. On good years, she could fool you and you would see that your brother got it and think you were safe, but noooooo! Unwrap your next gift and there is the Kotex box.
The very best year was the year that JCountry got it. He was all of two or three years old and I really would not have thought that he knew what a Kotex box was, but I have a movie of him unwrapping his gift, taking one look at the box and staring up open mouthed in wonder at just what was his Great-Grandmother was giving him.
Hmmm! Good idea, as soon as those old movies are transfered to CD’s, I shall post it on U-Tube and he shall become a U-Tube sensation and be properly embarrassed, AGAIN!
