Poo and other things

I know I shared with some of you that my husband's family does a Christmas grab gift exchange. So far, my husband and I haven't partaken in the madness. This year, I suppose I was feeling a little less grinchy so I agreed we should partake this year. 

But in true Belinda fashion, it's no fun to bring a normal gift. I searched high and low to find something unusual, I asked everyone for ideas, and nothing was striking my fancy until we encountered this fabulous gem:


Ah poo! I couldn't resist....

I'm 27 and I still find toilet humor hilarious.

Sorry...

Since I don't think you're supposed to know who gave what until the gift exchange is over, I'm placing this in a store-bought bag (ok, one I saved from last year). But I just couldn't resist a crafty touch...


So we added a little Christmas poem about reindeer poop...

"Christmas is coming and so are the deer,
Listen carefully and you will hear,
and 'long with those comes a special treat,
Reindeer droppings for you to eat"

Granted the card game is about monkey poo but eh... little details....


We picked up some chocolates at Trader Joes for the edible poo portion of the gift. Chocolate covered blueberries, chocolate covered almonds and some chocolate mint creams - yum.

At the time of this post, I was still deciding if I should include a roll of toilet paper too. After all, I like to promote hygiene. But I'm not sure I can sacrifice a roll of my 3-ply... especially if not everyone appreciates my sense of humor...

But as of right now, I think I'm gonna go for it. ;-)

Love your idea! I think your kind of humour is a bit like mine. Hope the person can see the fun in it.

Greetings from snowy Germany, ines

How is the snow "front" (don't know if that word is correct here or even if it is an English word, I'm too lazy to look it up) at your part in the world?
