My husband and I are empty nesters with two grown & married daughters with 4 grandkids between them. Unfortunately, they are not coming home for either Thanksgiving or Christmas (this is the year they visit in-laws). Due to my husbands work deadline in a few months, he won't be able to take off to go see them. So, I was hoping to do 12 days of giving during the 24 days before Christmas. I have come up with a few ideas, but would like your input! These are some of the ideas I have so far: 1) Pay for someone's meal behind us in a drive thru 2) Coffee & Toffee (I make homemade toffee for Christmas) for either his co-workers or the staff at the nearby elementary school I use to work for 3) Making dinner for a family staying at an RV park while their house sale goes through 4) The Giving vending machines here in downtown Denver 5) Paying for parking for the car behind us during an Avalanche Game (big hockey fans) 6) Leave an extra big tip for great service at dinner I don't "work" so I don't mind doing prep work but would like some ideas to actually involve my husband as "date nights". Of course, I hope to scrap our adventures! Let me know if you have any ideas!
